    This thread should help, it's asking the same thing (and here too).

    The second thread Colin linked to has the simple answer:

    All I had to do is change the dom option of the Datatable from this Bfrtip to frtip to hide it

    Then use button().trigger() in your button click event to trigger the appropriate Datatables button.

    If you still need help then please provide a running test case showing the layout you have in your screenshot. We can then provide specific code, for your solution, to show you what to do.

    Here's a working example of that - calling button().trigger() to call the button's action script.
