Hey guys, how are you?
I need help, i was not able to CREATE the EDIT button to my DATATABLE; i am filling each row using a FOREACH,
I can't use the Html.ActionLink helper because i have to generate the links dynamically from the javascript

This is my code:

@model IEnumerable<WebApplication.Models.Approval>

@{
    ViewData["Title"] = "Approvals";
}

<h1>Approvals</h1>

<table class="table" id="Exampledatatable">
    <thead>
        <tr>
            <th>
                @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.CODE)
            </th>
            <th>
                @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.EMAIL)
            </th>
            <th>
                @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.FIRSTNAME)
            </th>
            <th>
                @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.LASTNAME)
            </th>
        </tr>
    </thead>
    <tbody>
        @foreach (var item in Model)
        {
        <tr>
            <td>
                @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.CODE)
            </td>
            <td>
                @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.EMAIL)
            </td>
            <td>
                @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.FIRSTNAME)
            </td>
            <td>
                @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.LASTNAME)
            </td>
            <td>
                @Html.ActionLink("EDIT", "Edit", new { id = item.code })    
            </td>
        </tr>
        }
    </tbody>
</table> 

I need to replace this:

<td>
    @Html.ActionLink("EDIT", "Edit", new { id = item.code })    
</td>

I was thinking about creating something like this:

<script type="text/javascript">    
    $(document).ready(function () {
        $('#myDataTable').dataTable({
            aoColumns: [
                      null, // first column (CODE)
                      null, // second column (EMIAL)  
                      null, // third (FIRSTNAME)
                      null, // fourth (LASTNAME)

                      {     // fifth column (Edit link)
                        "sName": "CODE",
                        "bSearchable": false,
                        "bSortable": false,
                        "fnRender": function (oObj)                              
                        {
                            // oObj.aData[0] returns the CODE
                            return "<a href='/Edit?id=" 
                                + oObj.aData[0] + "'>Edit</a>";
                        }
                       }

                   ]
     });  
}); 
</script>

Can help me to create my SCRIPT to make it work, i'm super lost

    In the future please just update the original thread. Its less confusing for those trying to help.

    I tried what you told me but it did not work.

    What exactly is not working?

    Do you get errors in the browser's console or alert messages?

    Can you post a link to your page or a test case showing the issue?
