Render Datatables Boolean Column

datatable boolean column c#
datatables boolean column checkbox
datatables render
datatables sort boolean column
datatables sort rendered column
datatables render html
datatables checkbox
datatable render button

I have datatables returning the data using server side processing. I have not modified the basic example given from data tables.

I have some boolean columns that I want to render as icons e.g. 1 = Green tick 0 = red cross or something similar. It currently looks like this. How would I go about rendering just 3 columns?

here's the code, i've tried, however this results in the whole table being blank...

    $(document).ready(function() {
    $('#log').dataTable( {
        "bProcessing": true,
        "bServerSide": true,
        "sAjaxSource": "assetlog.php"
    "columns": [
          { "data": "id" },
           { "data": "assetcode" },
           { "data": "name"},
           { "data": "shift" }
           { "data": "datetime" },
           { "data": "stop_production" },
           { "data": "furtheractions" }
           { "data": "jobcomplete" },
           { "data": "duration" },
           ],
           "columnDefs": [
                      {
                          "render": function (data, type, row) {
                              return (data === true) ? '<span class="glyphicon glyphicon-ok"></span>' : '<span class="glyphicon glyphicon-remove"></span>';
                          },
                          "targets": 6
                      }
                  ]

    } );
} );

Thanks

Boolean fields as checkboxes — DataTables forums, In the section "columns: []" I used a "render" to get a checkbox object but it does not refer to the data field. Without "render", true or false is� I have datatables returning the data using server side processing. I have not modified the basic example given from data tables.

Search for a string instead of '1' in a Boolean Column — DataTables , In my DataTable there are some columns receiving a bool value. In the end, instead of showing 1, 0 or null, i want to display the specific name� I have datatables returning the data using server side processing. I have not modified the basic example given from data tables. I have some boolean columns that I want to render as icons e.g. 1 = Green tick 0 = red cross or something similar. It currently looks like this. How would I go about rendering just 3 columns?

Here how I do mine, it will look at all the columns, if it see true ou will replace with the right icon.

$(document).ready(function() {
    $('#table_detail').DataTable( {
        data: json_detail.data,
        columns: json_detail.headers,
        columnDefs : [ {
          "targets": "_all",
            "render": function ( data, type, row ) {
                if (data === true) {
                    data = '<img src="/static/rapport/images/icon-yes.gif">';
                }
                else if (data === true) {
                    data = '<img src="/static/rapport/images/icon-yes.gif">';
                }
                return data
            },

        } ]

    } );
} );

How do I sort a bool column? — DataTables forums, NET MVC and grabbing columns from a SQL table. render: function ( data, type , row ) { if ( type === 'display' ) { return '<input type="checkbox"� DataTable.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("Column Name", typeof(bool), true.ToString()) DataColumn has a constructor overload as above. Here it accepts the third parameter as default value for that DataColumn. But the parameter is of string type. So make sure that the default value is typecasted to string.

boolean data and TypeError: sData.match is not a , column contains boolean data "true/false" or "0\1", * I must use the Render function */ render: function (data, type, row) { return (data == true) ? The data that is returned by the columns.render option (regardless of if it is used as a function, integer or string) is what DataTables will use for the requested data type (this is called the resolved data).

Searching for booleans (not working?!) — DataTables forums, Hi, I'm trying to search a column (local no server-side) for boolean values Searching the boolean column by string ("true"/"false") is not working either. I am rendering the booleans to a custom string (using columns.render)� Each column has an optional rendering control called columns.render which can be used to process the content of each cell before the data is used. columns.render has a wide array of options available to it for rendering different types of data orthogonally (ordering, searching, display etc), but it can be used very simply to manipulate the content of a cell, as shown here.

Using mRender to display boolean value — DataTables forums, <script> var table = $('#productTable').DataTable({ "aoColumnDefs": [{ "aTargets": [5] // Here we have to give the target column for which value� hi allen. I am working on upgrading one of my apps to DT1.10. I am having a problem searching for boolean values in a column. in 1.9.4 when i created my datatable, i assigned it to a variable called rTable and called rTable.fnFilter("false", 1); to find all rows where column 1 was false.

  • Put some code what you tried..
  • check this link:stackoverflow.com/questions/658044/tick-symbol-in-html-xhtml
  • Provide some sample code plus response data if possible...
  • You can create the markup (HTML) for the icons in the query.
  • Hi I've added the code I've tried. Unfortunately it just returns nothing once I use the "columns" definition...
  • Hi there, using this i still get a blank page. Makes sense the changes you made though! Thanks :-) I get this as an output in the console.. Unexpected string literal "columns". Expected '}' to end a object literal.
  • Ok i fixed that with some missing syntax. Now the columns with the icons are returning all null or undefined..
  • If the columns value is actually 1 or 0 I'd consider trying to change the return (data == true) to `return (data === 1) and see if that changes anything.
  • That's not a correct way to do it, columns.render is better suited for this. Your solution will work only for elements currently in DOM (current page only). Also it's not recommended to manipulate cell content directly, there are API methods available for each use case.
  • I don't agree. I generate my table dynamically with express and render with pug, and precising 'render' in the dataTables options is far more complicated than my method. Both method are good, I think everybody facing the same issue should be aware of them, and choose wisely depending on their case. Besides, my method works even with tables not using dataTables.
