Unable to navigate to a specific page

Unable to navigate to a specific page

This seems pretty cut and dry but it isn't working. Using the API below:

https://datatables.net/reference/api/page()

I have an input button with a jquery on click event, just copy /pasted the code:

table.page('next').draw('page');

I have already init'ed table as my DataTable(). When I click the button, nothing happens, any ideas?

    Please provide a link to your page or a test case replicating the issue so we can see what you have.

    Otherwise you will need to verify if your click event is working and if you have any errors in your browser's console.

    After running it through the fiddler it appears to work only if I have it inside document.ready()

    I had it inside that in my code however the DOM must not have been updated, if I put it in:

    $(document).off("click", "#movepage").on("click", "#movepage", function () {

    It now works. Only issue at this point is I don't want it to happen on a mouse click, I want it to just navigate to a page when the table is loaded.

    I want it to just navigate to a page when the table is loaded.

    Use initComplete to perform actions after the Datatable has been loaded.

    Thanks I tried that earlier but it wasn't working, turns out i was looking at the wrong function.

    Is there a way for me to reference the table itself during initcomplete? Using the variable name (table) or this is not working.

    I was able to accomplish this by using this guide:

    https://datatables.net/forums/discussion/34352/passing-datatable-object-to-initcomplete-callback

    I also found that it would not change the page unless I wrapped the page changing in a setTimeout. It appears to be functioning for me now however.
