join()

Since: DataTables 1.10

Join the elements in the result set into a string.

Description

This method operates in exactly the same way as the Javascript array join method, combining the contents of the array (in this case the API instance) into a single string.

This method makes use of the fact that DataTables API objects are "array like", in that they inherent a lot of the abilities and methods of the Javascript Array type.

In this case, this method is a proxy for the Javascript Array.prototype.join method and is provided as a utility method for the DataTables API. For more information about the original method, please refer to the Mozilla MDN documentation for concat.

Type

function join( separator )

Description:

Join the elements in the API instance's result set into a string.

Contents of the instance's result set joined together as a single string.

Example

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

var combinedData = table
	.column( 0 )
	.data()
	.join( ', ' );
