TableTools Download Plugin

I am currently using the TableTools plugin download (get only). I am using the same server side code for the download as outlined here: http://datatables.net/forums/discussion/7757/tabletools-csvexcel-to-get-whole-table-with-serverside/p1

My challenge is that I am using the ColVis and ColReorder extras as well. When I have a table displayed, I want to serverside program to process it for the csv just like it is shown on the screen. (For example, I may reorder a column and hide 2 columns and I want my csv to reflect this) Is this possible?

thanks,
Shawn

    You would need to have the request also sent the information about the column order and the visibility settings. Simply doing `$('#myTable thead th')` will get you the cells in the head, then create an array of their values and sent it to the server so it can process them.
