Internationalisation

All of the text fields displayed to the end user by the DateTime input can be customised during initialisation of the DateTime control through its i18n configuration option. This example demonstrates that by displaying all string in French.

Note that you will likely wish to also use the format option to customise the display of the date / time value into a format that will be familiar to your end users.

The following CSS library files are loaded for use in this example to provide the styling of the table:

This table loads data by Ajax. The latest data that has been loaded is shown below. This data will update automatically as any additional data is loaded.

The script used to perform the server-side processing for this table is shown below. Please note that this is just an example script using PHP. Server-side processing scripts can be written in any language, using the protocol described in the DataTables documentation.
