turn off select...sometimes

I have a dataTable where I need to enable select

        select: {
            style: 'multi'
        },

but, under certain conditions I need to turn off the ability to select. Is this possible?

I tired .select(false) but that didn't seem to work

        if (isNewRequest == 0) {
            if (selected.data().RequestHeader.ApprovedBy != null) {
                btnText = 'Close'; //no changes allowed
                RequestRoleSelectTable
                    .rows(function (idx, data, node) {
                        if (headerID == 0) {
                            return data.Users.UserID != null ? false : true;
                        } else {
                            return data.RequestDetails.RequestDetailID != null ? false : true;
                        }

                    })
                    .remove().draw();
                RequestRoleSelectTable.select(false);
            } else {
                btnText = 'Save'; //updating existing request
            }
        }

    I might be wrong but I don't think there is an API to toggle select on/off. However you could use select.selector() to set a fake classname to turn it off. The select.selector shows the default as td, th. You could turn it back on by using this selector.

    Yep, Kevin's right. I'd just knocked out this example before I realised he'd replied and said the same thing!
