I have a json that returns an api with the following format::

{
  "tiPartNumber": "AFE7799IABJ",
  "genericPartNumber": "AFE7799",
  "buyNowUrl": "https://www.ti.com/product/AFE7799/part-details/AFE7799IABJ",
  "quantity": 0,
  "pricing": [
    {
      "currency": "EUR",
      "priceBreaks": [
        {
          "priceBreakQuantity": 1,
          "price": 733.891
        },
        {
          "priceBreakQuantity": 100,
          "price": 664.297
        },
        {
          "priceBreakQuantity": 250,
          "price": 645.318
        },
        {
          "priceBreakQuantity": 1000,
          "price": 632.664
        }
      ]
    }
  ],
  "description": "Quad-channel RF transceiver with dual feedback paths",
  "minimumOrderQuantity": 1,
  "standardPackQuantity": 90,
  "exportControlClassificationNumber": "5A991B",
  "htsCode": "8542390001",
  "pinCount": 400,
  "packageType": "AFE7799IABJ_400_FCBGA_ABJ",
  "packageCarrier": "TRAY",
  "customReel": false,
  "lifeCycle": "ACTIVE"
}

The problem is that I do not format so that the data appears in each column. I have tried this:

$(document).ready(function () {
    $('#buscar').DataTable({
        "ajax": {
            "url": "php/texasinst.txt",
            "dataSrc": "pricing"
        },
        columns: [
            { data:"priceBreaks[].priceBreakQuantity"},
            { data:"priceBreaks[].price"},


            
        ],
    });
});

But it returns the data all together in the column and I need them to go in different columns. In addition, the data numbers of the arrays are variables, they are not always three data.

Thanks in advance

    Try ajax.dataSrc with pricing/priceBreaks, I suspect that will give you what you want,

    Thanks for the help, but it doesn't return anything.

    $(document).ready(function () {
        $('#buscar').DataTable({
            "ajax": {
                "url": "php/texasinst.txt",
                "dataSrc": "pricing/priceBreaks"
            },
            columns: [
                { data:"priceBreakQuantity"},
                { data:"price"},
            ],
        });
    });
    

    and in case you wanted to add more data like
    currency, description etc as you would.

    Sorry, coffee hadn't kicked in, I meant pricing.priceBreaks, as it needs to reference that pricing object. Apologies for the confusion,

    Well, nothing continues without going, maybe something fails in the code, I also put the html

    <div class="container">
        <div class="row" id="demotext">Etiquetas serie cliente</div>
        <hr>
        <div class="row">
        <hr>
            <div class="col-lg-12">
                <table border=1 id="buscar" class="table display table-striped table-bordered">
                    <thead>
                        <tr>
                            <th>Cantidad</th>
                            <th>Precio</th>
                            
                        </tr>
                    </thead>
                </table>
            </div>
        </div>
    </div>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(document).ready(function () {
        $('#buscar').DataTable({
            "ajax": {
                "url": "php/texasinst.txt",
                "dataSrc": "pricing.priceBreaks"
            },
            columns: [
                { data:"priceBreakQuantity"},
                { data:"price"},
            ],
        });
    });
            
            
    </script>   
    

    and as I told you before, if I need to put more than one datasrc how would I do it
    Thanks

    You can only define one ajax.dataSrc. I would look t using columns.render to render the data the way you want. I'm not sure exactly how you want to break it up over multiple columns but you can package it together with a simple loop and return the data the way you want to display it. You Orthogonal data to manipulate the array only for the display operation.

    If you want help with this then please build a simple example with a sample of your data. Also eprovide details of how you want the data to be presented in the table. Use Javascript sourced data, like this example for your sample data.

    hi kthorngren, thanks for replying.
    the previous example is already real data (I put them back here)

    {
      "tiPartNumber": "AFE7799IABJ",
      "genericPartNumber": "AFE7799",
      "buyNowUrl": "https://www.ti.com/product/AFE7799/part-details/AFE7799IABJ",
      "quantity": 0,
      "pricing": [
        {
          "currency": "EUR",
          "priceBreaks": [
            {
              "priceBreakQuantity": 1,
              "price": 733.891
            },
            {
              "priceBreakQuantity": 100,
              "price": 664.297
            },
            {
              "priceBreakQuantity": 250,
              "price": 645.318
            },
            {
              "priceBreakQuantity": 1000,
              "price": 632.664
            }
          ]
        }
      ],
      "description": "Quad-channel RF transceiver with dual feedback paths",
      "minimumOrderQuantity": 1,
      "standardPackQuantity": 90,
      "exportControlClassificationNumber": "5A991B",
      "htsCode": "8542390001",
      "pinCount": 400,
      "packageType": "AFE7799IABJ_400_FCBGA_ABJ",
      "packageCarrier": "TRAY",
      "customReel": false,
      "lifeCycle": "ACTIVE"
    }
    

    and the format I'm looking for to expose the data in the table are these:

    Providing a simple running test case, even if it doesn't do what you want, is always very helpful. It makes it easier for us to help you. I built one for you.
    http://live.datatables.net/sofesoka/1/edit

    I added the columns.render to show how you can loop the arrays to build the output.

    hi,
    Access to the live.datatables.net website ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS I have already deleted browsing data and cookies

    Your browser is probably changing the URL from HTTP to HTTPS. Change the URL to use HTTP.

    Here is an example of on of the columns in case you can't get to thte example:

          {
            data: 'pricing',
            render: function (data, type, row) {
              if (type === 'display') {
                var priceBreaks = data[0].priceBreaks;
                var output = [];
                priceBreaks.forEach(function(item, index) {
                  output.push( item.priceBreakQuantity );
                });
                return output.join(', ');
              }
              return data;
            }
          },

    Thanks, kevin
    Colin had passed me something similar (you can see above) but the idea if it is possible is that each data separated by commas goes in a different column.

  • kthorngrenkthorngren Posts: 17,697Questions: 25Answers: 4,197
    Answer ✓

    Yes as long as each row has the same number of columns. In each column you can access the particular array element you want. If the array element doesn't exist then return an empty string, ie, return ""; in columns.render.

  • kthorngrenkthorngren Posts: 17,697Questions: 25Answers: 4,197

    Maybe something like Child Detail Rows would work better with variable length data. Its possible to initialize the table with all the child rows open.

    Kevin

  • jcgarojcgaro Posts: 8Questions: 1Answers: 0

    Hi Kevin,
    Yes, they would have the same columns, and it would return an empty space in case of not having data.
    even as the code would be.
