Button extend copy with action

Button extend copy with action

TomTom1TomTom1 Posts: 2Questions: 2Answers: 0


I would like to add an action to a Copy button and keep the default comportement as well. I succedded for a Copy as HTML5 but the basic Copy did generate an issue ($.fn.dataTable.ext.buttons.copy.action being undefined).
A scenario has been uploaded in a zip.
Can you tell me how to solve this case ?
Thank you in advance.

    In the action for the button you should be able to do something like:

    new $.fn.dataTable.Buttons( table, {
        buttons: [
                extend: 'copy',
                action: function ( e, dt, node, config ) {
                    // Do custom processing
                    // ...
                    // Call the default copyHtml5 action method to do the standard copy
                    $.fn.dataTable.ext.buttons.copyHtml5.action.call(this, e, dt, node, config);
    } );

    See buttons.buttons.action.
