The loading screen with the blue icon.

I want to keep the processing option but remove only the blue icon, as I want to add custom massages without the blue icon.

P.S: I have serverSide enabled only on the real case and not on the test case.

    That is no longer possible with the latest Data Tables release. I just tested it myself: My FA icon is ignored and the built-in Data Tables spinner is shown.
    https://datatables.net/reference/option/language.processing

    Please note that prior to DataTables 1.12 the default for this parameter was Processing.... The processing indicator in 1.12 has been updated to use a CSS animation to indicate that a loading action is taking place. A text string can still be added if needed.

    Of course you can still fiddle with this after dt initialization by removing the CSS etc. Good luck.

    Sure it can be done :). Just add this CSS to your page:

    div.dataTables_processing div {
      display: none;
    }
    

    Example: http://live.datatables.net/gajejise/1/edit .

    Hi Allan! your link shows this error

    Not Found
    The requested URL was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    The link does work. Try clearing your browser's cache or use a different browser.

    I added the CSS to your test case and it works:

    You might need to load Font Awesome library to show their spinner.

    Thanks, Allan, that's what I needed!
    @kthorngren I tried clearing browser cache and used two different browsers, nothing worked, page still Not Found

    I have another Q, is it possible to show the loading indicator when sorting in serverSide mode?

  • rf1234rf1234 Posts: 2,355Questions: 76Answers: 339

    Yes, that is the default behavior - unless you turned it off using Allan's CSS above.

  • TheNerdy97TheNerdy97 Posts: 23Questions: 5Answers: 1

    @rf1234 Even before I used Allan's CSS, when I sort no loading indicator appear.

  • kthorngrenkthorngren Posts: 16,784Questions: 25Answers: 3,973

    It works in this example. Can you post a link to your page or a test case showing the problem?

    nvm, it works but it was too fast and because I have child row, it appears lower on the DT, is it possible to make it show under the column's title directly?

    Yes, with CSS everything is possible - but not using the API.

    This is the CSS I use to keep the processing indicator where I want it to be. This is a lot about experimenting ...

    .dataTables_wrapper .dataTables_processing {
        position: fixed !important;
        top: 50% !important;
    }
