How to cancel row removal when editor remove button finishes it's work

Hello,

Working with datatables 1.12.1 + Editor 2.0.8
One remove button configured and linked to the editor instance, itself linked to the datatable in the usual way.

I would like to cancel row deletion when the postSubmit event modifyes json payload to contain the error :
jso = { error: 'Editor, please cancel row removal because the process has failed somehow' }

The button extends 'remove' editor button.

How to achieve this in the most effective and simple way ?

    Please apologize typo.

    postSubmit button callback alters json parameter, not jso as written above. So

    json = { error : 'Editor, please cancel row deletion from datatable !'}

    Answer ✓

    Having the error parameter in the JSON response from the server should stop the row being removed client-side. If that isn't working for you, can you link to the page showing the issue so I can get the full picture of how DataTables and Editor are configured and debug it?

    Thanks,

    You are correct. Bug due to the user, not the framework.

    the postSubmit requires the user to alter json parameter, not reassigning it to a new object like { error: 'whatever' }.

    Altering json object in-place does the trick : json.error = 'whatever is to be said on the U/I side';

    Thansk for your fast reply. that is great.

    That would do it. Good to hear you got it fixed :)
