    Do you mean as the user is typing you are converting Roman numerals to Persian? And you want that to happen before DataTables’ search starts? Your best option is probably to use your own input element with an input event handler that does your conversion and then triggers a call to the search() method (instead of typing to modify the build in search box).

    your solution work for me ,
    first we should remove the default search input from data table dom by removing f ,
    then add our custom input like

    and then in the script add ,
    var table1=$('#example1').DataTable({
    "dom": '<"top"i>rt<"bottom"lp><"clear">',
    });
    $("#mySearchText1").bind("keyup", function(e) {
    let map = {
    '0' : "۰",
    '1' : "۱",
    '2' : "۲",
    '3' : "۳",
    '4' : "۴",
    '5' : "۵",
    '6' : "۶",
    '7' : "۷",
    '8' : "۸",
    '9' : "۹"
    };

                this.value = this.value.replace(/[0123456789]/g, function(match) {
                    return map[match]
    
                });
                table1.search(this.value).draw();
            });
    

    , thanks for your help allan
