Is this possible ? So that all the datatables can be exported in 1 pdf ?

    `$('table.display').DataTable( {
                dom: 'Bfrtip',
                buttons: [ {
                    extend : 'print',
                    title : title,

                    extend: 'pdfHtml5',
                    title : title,
                    filename: 'export',
                    footer: true

                language: {

                var api = this.api(), data;
     
                // Remove the formatting to get integer data for summation
                var intVal = function ( i ) {
                    return typeof i === 'string' ?
                        i = parseFloat(i.replace(",", ".")):
                        typeof i === 'number' ?
                            i : 0;

                // Total over all pages
                total = api
                    .column( 4 )
                    .data()
                    .reduce( function (a, b) {
                        return intVal(a) + intVal(b);
                    }, 0 );
                // Total over this page
                pageTotal = api
                    .column( 4, { page: 'current'} )
                    .data()
                    .reduce( function (a, b) {
                        return intVal(a) + intVal(b);
                    }, 0 );
                // Update footer
                pageTotal = pageTotal.toFixed(2);
                total = total.toFixed(2);
                $( api.column( 4 ).footer() ).html(
                    '€'+ total +' total'
                );
                }
            } );
    

    this creates x datatables based on for loops and each with 1 pdf button for each table

    This thread should help, it's asking the same thing.

    Cheers,

    helped a bit but i am not using the table ID but the class for every table :(

  • kthorngrenkthorngren Posts: 12,528Questions: 25Answers: 2,952

    If you are trying the $.merge() option you should be able to use the table() API to individually get each table. See this simple example:

    Tried this

    $('button').on('click', function() {
                var data = ''
                var table = $('.display').DataTable();
                alert(table.length)
                for (var i = 0; i < table.length; i++) {
                    var data = table.table(i).data();
                    $.merge( data, table.table(i).data());
                }
                alert(data)
                $('#export-table').DataTable({
                    dom: 'Bfrtip',
                    data: data,
                    buttons: [{
                        extend: 'pdfHtml5'
                    }],
                    drawCallback: function() {
                        $('#export-table_wrapper .buttons-pdf').click()
                        setTimeout(function() {
                        $('#export-table').DataTable().destroy(false);
                        }, 200)
                    }
                })
            })  ;

                    var data = table.table(i).data();
                    $.merge( data, table.table(i).data());
                }
                alert(data)
                $('#export-table').DataTable({

                        setTimeout(function() {
                        $('#export-table').DataTable().destroy(false);
                        }, 200)
                    }

            })  ;

    You can use the tables() API to get all the Datatables or use table-selector to limit the Datatables. If you investigate the returned Datatable API you will see there is a context property which is an array containing each Datatable. You can use the length of that array for your loop.

    $('button').on('click', function() {
                var table = $('.display').DataTable();
                for (var i = 1; i < table.tables().context.length; i++) {
                    alert(i)
                    var data = table.table(i).data();
                    $.merge( data, table.table(i).data());

                })
            })  ;
    
    
    

    Also tried this one... :( still nothing in the export except for the headers.

  • kthorngrenkthorngren Posts: 12,528Questions: 25Answers: 2,952

    Maybe you need to do something like this:

                var table = $('.display').DataTable();
                var data = [];
                for (var i = 1; i < table.tables().context.length; i++) {
                    alert(i)
                    $.merge( data, table.table(i).data());
                }
    

    If this doesn't help please post a test case example so we can help debug.

    now it works but it prints on 1 table but the data for each table is not seperated :(

    http://live.datatables.net/gihiceju/8/edit?html,js,console,output

  • BartTechneBartTechne Posts: 24Questions: 6Answers: 0

    so the title is an H5 automatic generated

    what i want in the pdf is:

    H5 as title of the Datatable
    datatable1
    H5 as title of datatable2
    Datatable2

    or is this not a good way ?

  • BartTechneBartTechne Posts: 24Questions: 6Answers: 0

    i saw theire was a mistake in the url docs

    http://live.datatables.net/gihiceju/10/

  • colincolin Posts: 11,519Questions: 0Answers: 1,964

    On that last URL there's a console error - data is undefined. I changed it to be data_export and it's working nicely : http://live.datatables.net/gihiceju/11/edit

    thanks ! not just 100% though. if you could help me with it ?

    When the first/last name changes. thats a new datatable. but i would want a title between every export.
    Is that something that would work ? so:
    title - datatable1 (where title is an h5 on my HTML )
    title - datatable2

    or can you "name" your datatable ?

  • BartTechneBartTechne Posts: 24Questions: 6Answers: 0

    Also the footer is not on the table :(

  • colincolin Posts: 11,519Questions: 0Answers: 1,964

    This example shows how to customise the title, and this one shows how to add the footer,
