Using editor to edit value before refreshing datatables

Using editor to edit value before refreshing datatables

Hello.

I'm using this is order to get the data submited before sending the ajax call.

editor.on( 'preSubmit', function ( e, data ) {
...
});

Inside that form, I have the value data.data_key that is equal to 1 for example. I want to, before Datatables refreshes, to make this value equal to something else. How can I achieve that? I tried to do

editor.on( 'preSubmit', function ( e, d ) {
data.data_key = 3
});

But it doesn't seem to work, the refreshed Datatables contains the original value. Any idea on how can I go about this problem?

    To be clear, do you want to change the value before it's submitted to the server? Or you want to modify the data after the server responds to the submission?

    @colin after the server responds, when re-writing the data to Datatables.

    I have tried this :

    editor.on( 'preEdit', function ( e, d ) {
        return {data_key: d.data['data_key']}
    } );
    

    But also this doesn't seem to change the updated data for the cell data_key...

    I found the answer while testing tons of things :smile:

    editor.on( 'preEdit', function ( e, d, data ) {
        data.data_key = 'New data key'
        return data
    } );
