Javascript Number type.


Numbers in Javascript (both integers and floating point numbers) are stored in the number type.

A detailed description of the Number type is available on the Mozilla Developer Network.

Use in DataTables

Where a parameter is shown as accepting a number type, or a method returning a number type, it indicates that a numeric value is accepted / returned. We define a special type of integer as a sub-set of numbers which accept only integer values. As such number types can be either integers or floating point numbers.
