Appended to the info string when searching is active.


When a user performs a search operation on the table, this string is appended to the info feature's display text to given an indication of what the search means in the context of the number of rows found.

This option can be given in the following type(s):


Defaults to the language.infoFiltered option.


Customise the search string:

new DataTable('#myTable', {
	layout: {
		bottomStart: {
			info: {
				search: ' - filtered from _MAX_ records'
