Return an array of table values from a particular column, with various filtering options.
DataTables 1.10+ provides the
column().data() method, built-in to
the core, to provide this ability. As such, this method is marked deprecated,
but is available for use with legacy version of DataTables. Please use the
new API if you are used DataTables 1.10 or newer.
This plug-in can be obtained and used in multiple different ways.
This plug-in is available on the DataTables CDN:
The plug-in will then automatically register itself against a global DataTables instance. This file can also be used if you are using an AMD loader such as Require.js.
Note that if you are using multiple plug-ins, it can be beneficial in terms of performance to combine the plug-ins into a single file and host it on your own server, rather than making multiple requests to the DataTables CDN.
datatables.net-plugins package. To use this plug-in, first install the plug-ins package:
npm install datatables.net-plugins
Then, if you are using ES modules, import
datatables.net, any other DataTables extensions you need, and the plug-in:
import DataTable from 'datatables.net'; import 'datatables.net-plugins/api/fnGetColumnData.mjs';
If you are using a CommonJS loader for Node (e.g. with older versions of Webpack, or non-module Node code) use the following method to
require the plug-in:
var $ = require('jquery'); var DataTable = require('datatables.net'); require('datatables.net-plugins/api/fnGetColumnData.js');
var table = $('#example').dataTable(); table.fnGetColumnData( 3 );
If you have any ideas for how this plug-in can be improved, or spot anything that is in error, it is available on GitHub and pull requests are very welcome!
