Since: SearchPanes SearchPanes 1.4.0

Set the message to be displayed in the Collapse button.
Please note - this property requires the SearchPanes extension for DataTables.


As standard, SearchPanes will set the message to be displayed in the Collapse button to 'Collapse All'. This property allows that message to be configured.

This option allows direct configuration on the language options for the SearchPanes instance. At this time using language.searchPanes.collapseMessage has the same effect as setting this option. If both are provided, this will take preference, We've made this change for consistency in our APIs moving forward.




Setting the searchPanes.i18n.collapseMessage option to a string of your choice allows the Collapse All button to have custom text within it.

This property is passed through an i18n() function.


  • Value: Collapse All

The default value for the searchPanes.i18n.collapseMessage parameter is "Collapse All".


Change message for the Collapse button:

$(document).ready(function() {
        searchPanes: {
            i18n: {
                collapseMessage: 'Hide SearchPanes'
