    I assume you mean the export buttons for Buttons. We have HTML5 versions of all the flash buttons - see examples here.

    Answer ✓

    As Colin said, you must have selected the Flash export buttons as part of the DataTables download (or you are using the legacy TableTools library). Remove the Flash export buttons and use the HTML5 export instead.

    Ok, got it thanks.

    Few more Question:
    1. While downloading package with selection options, how can we identify that which option was selected in current version package ? is there any way to identify because with same option i will download new package for HTML5 export.
    2. As currently using Flash report, If we upgrade from Flash to HTML5 then it will have many changes in application ? Do we have any document which helpful for upgradation ?

    While downloading package with selection options, how can we identify that which option was selected in current version package ?

    If you used the download builder before, it will be at the top of the JS file that it constructed.

    As currently using Flash report, If we upgrade from Flash to HTML5 then it will have many changes in application ?

    Are you using Buttons' Flash export? In which case, no there should be no changes.

    Hi Allan,
    The answer might be above but I'm trying to replace the legacy flash buttons with HTML5. We have a tabletools implementation that is obviously legacy since it displays the flash version of the export (xls, pdf, etc...) buttons. What is the simplest way of replacing these flash ones with HTML5? Do i just download the buttons1.6.5 package? How do i modify the calls within the page to these new ones? Sorry my knowledge is limited

  • colincolin Posts: 10,886Questions: 0Answers: 1,856

    Yep, TableTools is legacy - that functionality was retired a while ago. But yep, the answers are above - you just need to download Buttons (examples here). You can use the download builder to generate the links.

    Ok, thanks. we have updated latest button features and included colvis.. everything working well.

    Hi, I just wanted to confirm that the Buttons HTML5 features only works with non-legacy Datatables. Am I correct in that? Thanks

  • colincolin Posts: 10,886Questions: 0Answers: 1,856

    Yep, you need the Buttons extension, not the old TableTools.
