    Hi grobob,

    It should work. I've just tried a test with nested tables and it seems to do the job okay. Do you have a link you could post showing the error?

    Thanks

    I got an error, so i suppose i'm doing something wrong (i have no js error on the true url... but more complex)

    Hi grobob,

    Thanks very much for the link. Makes debugging much easier! The issue was in the selectors that I use for tbody, and that your tables use a tbody element. The two were getting mixed together, which resulted in a very confused DataTables... I've fixed this in my development version which I'll be releasing as beta 6 shortly.

    Try using beta 6 - I've modified the selectors a bit and hopefully this will fix your issue.

    Hi Allan,
    Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful plugin! Thanks very much, sir.

    I am trying to show a table within a table, and the inner table currently contains both a thead and a tbody tag. It seems to break if the thead tag contains th tags, with the following error:
    Error: oSettings.aoColumns[iIndex] is undefined
    Source File: jquery.dataTables.min.js
    Line: 411

    I can prevent the error by using td tags in place of the th tags.

    Is there a remedy for this conflict that would allow me to use th tags in the table-within-a-table, or am I forbidden from having additional th tags anywhere?

    Hi Luis,

    Excellent catch - thank you for finding that bug. The problem was in the calculation algorithm used for determining the width of the column. bAutoWidth:false would get around this problem! I've got a fix, and it will be in the next release of DataTables. If you want to stick it into your local copy replace line 3755 ( "var oNodes = $("td", nCalcTmp);") with:

    [code]
    var oNodes = $("tr:eq(0)>td", nCalcTmp);
    [/code]
    And that should do the trick nicely.

    I've also taken the opportunity to put a couple of other checks in for inner tables, to make sure they don't confuse DataTables :-)

    Regards,
    Allan

    "And that should do the trick nicely." Indeed it does!

    A minor correction here actually :-)

    It should be:

    [code]
    var oNodes = $("tr:eq(1)>td", nCalcTmp);
    [/code]
    Otherwise the auto width calculation goes out the window...
