Hi ,
I am new to dataTable concept i am trying to search particuler date column between two dates ,here I am taking reference from this page https://datatables.net/examples/plug-ins/range_filtering.html but i am getting this error 'Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'ext' of undefined ' .
I was searching this page 'https://datatables.net/forums/discussion/31476/uncaught-typeerror-cannot-read-property-ext-of-undefined' but i am not getting solution .

Here is my javascript code:

$.fn.dataTable.ext.search.push(
    function( settings, data, dataIndex ) {
        var min = parseInt( $('#min').val(), 10 );
        var max = parseInt( $('#max').val(), 10 );
        var age = parseFloat( data[3] ) || 0; // use data for the age column
 
        if ( ( isNaN( min ) && isNaN( max ) ) ||
             ( isNaN( min ) && age <= max ) ||
             ( min <= age   && isNaN( max ) ) ||
             ( min <= age   && age <= max ) )
        {
            return true;
        }
        return false;
    }
);
 
$(document).ready(function() {
    var table = $('#example').DataTable();
     
    // Event listener to the two range filtering inputs to redraw on input
    $('#min, #max').keyup( function() {
        alert("test");
        table.draw();
    } );
} )
 ```

My HTML code:

Minimum age: Maximum age:
        <div class="table-responsive">
            <div>
                <table id="example" class="display" style="width:100%">
                    <thead>
                        <tr>
                            <th>col 1</th>
                            <th>col 2</th>
                            <th>col 3</th>
                            <th>AGE</th>
                        </tr>
                    </thead>
                    <tbody>
                        <tr>
                            <td>data 11</td>
                            <td>data 12</td>
                            <td>data 13</td>
                            <td>24</td>
                        </tr>
                        <tr>
                            <td>data 21</td>
                            <td>data 22</td>
                            <td>data 23</td>
                            <td>52</td>
                        </tr>
                        <tr>
                            <td>data 31</td>
                            <td>data 32</td>
                            <td>data 33</td>
                            <td>33</td>
                        </tr>
                    </tbody>
                </table>

```

Thanks

    We're happy to take a look, but as per the forum rules, please link to a test case - a test case that replicates the issue will ensure you'll get a quick and accurate response. Information on how to create a test case (if you aren't able to link to the page you are working on) is available here.

    Hi @colin thanks for your valueble response ,i have taken reference from this page https://datatables.net/examples/plug-ins/range_filtering.html .In that page they had used age filter to age column .In my requirement i need to filter date column instead of age .
    To date column I have two input fields like start_date ,end_date and one submit button if i click the submit button date column should filter based on my start_date and end_date.

    This is my javascript code ;

    $.fn.dataTable.ext.search.push(
        function( settings, data, dataIndex ) {
            var min = parseInt( $('#min').val(), 10 );
            var max = parseInt( $('#max').val(), 10 );
            var age = parseFloat( data[3] ) || 0; // use data for the age column
      
            if ( ( isNaN( min ) && isNaN( max ) ) ||
                 ( isNaN( min ) && age <= max ) ||
                 ( min <= age   && isNaN( max ) ) ||
                 ( min <= age   && age <= max ) )
            {
                return true;
            }
            return false;
        }
    );
      
    $(document).ready(function() {
        var table = $('#example').DataTable();
          
        // Event listener to the two range filtering inputs to redraw on input
        $('#min, #max').keyup( function() {
            alert("test");
            table.draw();
        } );
    } )
    
    

    when I was trying this js code i am getting this error 'Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'ext ' of undefined '.

    remaining HTML and database related things i have taken form this page ,kinldy check once https://datatables.net/examples/data_sources/server_side.html same code i am using

    Please help me

    Yep, in the page it links to, it's working, so it's something in your code. Please create a test case, as requested, so we can diagnose your issue.

    Are your .keyup(function() events working? Use console.log or alert to see if they are firing.

    As Colin mentioned in order to help diagnose the problem we wil need to actually see it running. Please post a link to your page or a test case replicating the issue.

    Hi @Kevin thanks for your valuble replay ,.keyup(function() is working it is ginvig alert also.but in this function line number 3 ,it is not giving any alert

    $.fn.dataTableExt.afnFiltering.push(
     function(oSettings, aData, iDataIndex) {
        alert("inside table");
        if (typeof aData._date == 'undefined') {
          aData._date = new Date(aData[1]).getTime();
           
        }
     
        if (minDateFilter && !isNaN(minDateFilter)) {
          if (aData._date < minDateFilter) {
            return false;
          }
        }
     
        if (maxDateFilter && !isNaN(maxDateFilter)) {
          if (aData._date > maxDateFilter) {
            return false;
          }
        }
     
        return true;
      }
      );
    

    The same code working on differet file called test.php here you can see my code ;
    http://live.datatables.net/sagilose/1/edit .
    in this case i have hard code the table data(<td>) .

    but in my own file it is not working and this file my data (<td>) coming from database for that we have used dataTable https://datatables.net/examples/data_sources/server_side.html
    same funcitonality we have used .
    i am not understing why it is not working in my own file .

    Thanks

    As you say, it's working in the example, thanks for that. If it's not working elsewhere, compare the date formats - are they the same? Confirm that with debug console.log() statements in the filter. Also, you're using a very old version of DataTables, I would suggest upgrading.

    Colin

  • SandeepMuralaSandeepMurala Posts: 7Questions: 1Answers: 0

    @colin Thanks for your valuebale time for this ,date format is correct only .

    $.fn.dataTableExt.afnFiltering.push(    
            function(oSettings, aData, iDataIndex) {
                alert("inside");
        if (typeof aData._date == 'undefined') {
          aData._date = new Date(aData[1]).getTime();
          
        }
    
        if (minDateFilter && !isNaN(minDateFilter)) {
          if (aData._date < minDateFilter) {
            return false;
          }
        }
    
        if (maxDateFilter && !isNaN(maxDateFilter)) {
          if (aData._date > maxDateFilter) {
            return false;
          }
        }
    
        return true;
      }
      );

  • colincolin Posts: 7,242Questions: 0Answers: 1,222

    As I said before, if it's working in the example, then the logic is fine, the problem is going to be with the data. Have you tried the suggestions I made in my last message?
