buttons().nodes()

Since: Buttons 1.0.0

Get the button nodes for the selected buttons. Please note - this property requires the Buttons extension for DataTables.

Description

It can often be useful to have access to the DOM node of a button so you can manipulate it using directly jQuery or DOM methods. This method provides exactly that option.

Type

function buttons().nodes()

Description:

Get a jQuery object that contains a reference to the nodes for the selected buttons.

Returns:

A jQuery object that contains the nodes for the selected buttons

Examples

Set the background colour for selected buttons:

var table = $('#myTable').DataTable();

table
	.buttons( '.important' )
	.nodes()
	.css( 'background', 'red' );

Add a custom click event handler to the selected buttons:

var table = $('#myTable').DataTable();

table
	.buttons( '.data' )
	.nodes()
	.on( 'click', function ( e ) {
		console.log( 'Button clicked!' );
	} );
