Problem with insert a new row

Hi.

I have a problem when I want to insert data after an ajax call with the JSON of my project.

The definition of my table is:

<table class="table table-bordered m-table" id="tableExample">
    <thead class="columns titulars-sms">
        <tr>
            <th class="text-center">Name</th>
            <th class="text-center">Created</th>
        </tr>
    </thead>
</table>
var tableExample = $('#tableExample').DataTable();
$.ajax({                                      
    url: "{{url('/')}}/getusers",
    method: "GET",
    xhrFields: {
        withCredentials: true
    },
    data: {"CreationDate": Date},
    success: function (data,status,xhr) {
        $.each(data, function(index,value){
            tableExample.row.add({
                "Name": value.name,
                "Created": value.created
            }).draw();
        });
    },
});

And the error that I get in my screen is:

"DataTables warning: table id=tableExample- Requested unknown parameter '0' for row 0, column 0. For more information about this error, please see http://datatables.net/tn/4"

I debug with Chrome console and data is an array and have the attr "name" and "created".

So, I don't know where could be the error :neutral:

If you need some extra info, tell me.

    I'm assuming this is your Datatables initialization:

    var tableExample = $('#tableExample').DataTable();
    

    You haven't defined columns.data which is needed when adding objects like this:

                tableExample.row.add({
                    "Name": value.name,
                    "Created": value.created
                }).draw();
    

    Without defining columns.data Datatables expects the data to be an array for each row instead of the object you are adding. That is basically what the error link http://datatables.net/tn/4 is trying to say.

    Looks like you data in the success function is an array of objects. If so you can just use tableExample.rows.add( data ).draw();. Notice the plural rows. However if you choose to loop through the data and use row.add() remove the chained .draw() and use tableExample.draw(); after the each loop. It will be more efficient to execute draw() once rather than for each row added.

    Yes Kevin, the success is an array of object, look the image.

    But the error continues :neutral:

    Looks like the objects and the array have the keys fecha and total. But you are using something different value.name and value.created:

    tableExample.row.add({
        "Name": value.name,
        "Created": value.created
    }).draw();
    

    But the error continues

    What did you change? If you added columns.data you need to use fecha and total, like this:

    columns: [
      {data: 'fecha'},
      {data: 'total'}
    ],

    Oh yeah, now it works Kevin.

    Yeah, it was a mistake in the data names... Sorry and thanks!
