Adding EDIT button in DATATABLE (MVC ASP.NET CORE) not working HTML ACTION

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 :(

    Is this using Editor buttons? Or some other method?

    Hey Colin, yeah... i'm sorry, i just wanted to create a new question (my previous one has some typing errors). What do you mean by "Editor BUTTONS"?. The problem in my code is that i do not understand how to "add" the HTML ACTION LINK to the JS Script itself, otherwise i wont be able to edit every row of the datatable, do you get me?
