Since: SearchBuilder 1.0.0

A single button that displays the SearchBuilder container in a popover.
Please note - this property requires the SearchBuilder extension for DataTables.


This button type creates a popover that contains the SearchBuilder container. This allows SearchBuilder to be used without it taking up extra space in the dom.


This button can have the following options set in its configuration object to customise its actions and display, in addition to those options which are available for all buttons (e.g. buttons.buttons.text):


Basic SearchBuilder button initialisation:

$('#myTable').DataTable( {
    buttons: [
} );

SearchBuilder configuration using a button:

new $.fn.dataTable.Buttons( table, {
            extend: 'searchBuilder',
            config: {
                depthLimit: 2
} );
