    Can you show me the data that is being loaded (i.e. the JSON) and also a screenshot of the result please?

    Thanks,

    Without seeing an example of your data its hard to offer suggestions. Providing a simple test case with an example of your data will help us to help you.
    https://www.datatables.net/manual/tech-notes/10#How-to-provide-a-test-case

    I see you have server side processing enabled. Use the browser's network inspector to get a page of data to use in the test case. Use the data option to apply the row data to the Datatable. Similar to this example. You will only need to copy the columns config into the test case and provide the HTML table.

    I am not sure how to use the example page. I loaded the php file and the data into this page

    Here is a screen shot of the page

    On my other datatables these items that say object would have a time or a date in them, but when using the import function, they say object OBJECT?

    This is a City that receives Federal Funding , so i cannot link to their page and the data is coming from SQL so I cannot get the datatables page to load a sample

  • colincolin Posts: 15,179Questions: 1Answers: 2,590

    As Allan said, it would be helpful to see the data that gets loaded into the table. Could you post a couple of lines of the JSON here, so we can see what DataTables receives from the server, please.

    Yes :smile:

    The columns are defined like this:

                columns: [
                    { data: "service_date" },
                    { data: "Route" },
                    { data: "bus" },
                    { data: "leave_yard" },
                    { data: "Lvyd_odometer" },
                    { data: "inservice" },
                    { data: "inserv_odometer" },
                    { data: "out_of_service" },
                    { data: "outserv_odometer" },
                    { data: "return_to_yard" },
                    { data: "rtnyd_odometer" },
                    { data: "leave_for_break" },
                    { data: "return_from_break" },
                    { data: "leave_for_break2" },
                    { data: "return_from_break2" }

                    "timezone_type": 3,
                    "timezone": "America\/Los_Angeles"
                },

                    "timezone_type": 3,

                },
                "return_to_yard": {
                    "date": "2024-03-29 20:15:00",
                    "timezone_type": 3,

                "Lvyd_odometer": 255967,
                "inserv_odometer": 255970,
                "outserv_odometer": 256229,
                "rtnyd_odometer": 256231
            }
        ]
    }
    

    This example shows how to display nested objects. The columns will need to be defined like this:

                columns: [
                    { data: "service_date.date" },
    ....

    Also note that the draw value is 0 in your snippet. You may have edited when pasting but the value should never be 0. It needs to match the draw value in the request. I assume this is correct in your environment as the Datatable is displaying rows.

    First Thank you soo much. I have been researching the datatable manuals for two eeks now. this is very close thanks to you and I really appreciate it.
    That is bringing the date back now, but the times are in the database as 07:00 with no date. The datatable is trying to add todays date to last years entries. is there a way to show time only for the time fields?

  • kthorngrenkthorngren Posts: 20,425Questions: 26Answers: 4,794

    but the times are in the database as 07:00 with no date

    The client side Datatable doesn't modify the supplied data. The server script is returning the data as 2024-03-27 00:00:0 with the date and time. If this is not expected then it suggests that there is a disconnect between the server data query (how its handling datetime formats) and what is stored in the DB. The server script will need to be investigated.

    What is the data type for those time fields in the database?

    We have dozens of datatables that properly bring back the time, but we only have this one import datatable and the times in the db do not have dates only times. But the datatable is displaying todays date and the time from the db on each entry. The service_date field is correctly bringing back the db date, but the time in the same row will show the current date with the time from the db. Is there a format function to add %H:%M:%S?

    Maybe a renderer will do what you want. See these examples. Another option, if the datetime render doesn't fit your needs, is to use columns.render with a datetime library, ie moment.js, to display in the format you want. See this example.

    If
    columns: [
    { data: "service_date.date" },
    ....
    is used to format the value of date, what do i use for the time only?
    columns: [
    { data: "leave_yard" },
    I have looked at the examples and tried everything shown, but none of these are for time only?

    Answer ✓

    Here is an example using moment.js.
    https://live.datatables.net/tefotoha/1/edit

    The example assumes the original datetime format looks like 2024-03-29 04:52:00. See the moment.js display format docs to learn how to format the date output.

    If you prefer you can use another datetime library like Luxon.

    This worked. Thank you so much for sticking with this...
    data: "service_date.date",
    render: DataTable.render.datetime('M/DD/YYYY')},
    data: "leave_yard.date",
    render: DataTable.render.datetime('HH:mm:ss')},
