Blank line in SearchBuilder "Data" column list.

Link to test case: I can give the devs access to the site if necessary.
Debugger code (debug.datatables.net):
Error messages shown:
Description of problem:
I have a blank line in the SearchBuilder "Data" column list. It is the first "column" in the dropdown list, which corresponds to the position of my dedicated Responsive column.
Using it in a search gives a "Column not found: 1054 Unknown column" message, unsurprisingly. (Just checking, for the sake of completeness.)
My Responsive column is defined thus:

        columns: [

            // Control column for DataTables Responsive.
            {
                data: null,
                className: 'dtr-control',
                orderable: false,
                searchable: false,
                defaultContent: ""    
            },

Has anyone seen anything similar?

    Hi tangerine,

    I think you'll need to set the searchBuilder.columns option, like in this example.

    Oops! My own silly fault. Should have known to check the docs first. Sorry!
    Thank you.

    The "global" searchable properties are actually a bit of a problem. There are many different interpretations for them and I can see how you might have thought what you did. Indeed, perhaps that should be the default and they could then be re-enabled with the SearchBuilder options... :hands-up-in-the-air: :)
