Are there any common mistakes when initializing an editor that leads to submitHtml not rendering?

Hello,
I am currently encountering an issue when I start a full row inline edit where the submitHtml, and cancelHtml are not rendering. My code for the event that enables inline editing closely resembles the example found at:
https://editor.datatables.net/examples/inline-editing/fullRow.html

I see no errors in the JavaScript console and the inline edit does start. The Font Awesome icon that I use to enable the editing remains and when inspecting the DOM I don't see the any sign of the HTML I passed into the inline function (submitHtml and cancelHtml).

I don't want to outsource all the grunt work to the forum but was wondering if there are any common pitfalls with settings or other DataTables/Editor events that could possibly cause this kind of behavior.

I am using DataTables with Bootstrap 4 and Editor v2.2.2.

I would greatly appreciate any guidance or resources that may assist with debugging this ( I've been trying to to tease out the issue with no luck so far).
Thanks

    Hi,

    It is all about the cancelTrigger and editTrigger selectors. They need to point to the elements you want to update. It is also possible that you might need to run a function for FontAwesome to tell it to render (it depends on what version / implementation of FontAwesome you are using).

    If you are able to give me a link to the page I should be able to say with a little more certainity what is going on.
