Horizontal Scrollbars at top & bottom?

Horizontal Scrollbars at top & bottom?

For a larger table (25 rows) which overflows then it would be better to have a horizontal scrollbar at the top & bottom of the table.
There is a jQuery plugin to do this (https://github.com/sniku/jQuery-doubleScroll) however by default it doesn't play nicely with dataTables.
Would be great to have a dataTables plugin to do this nicely.
Funding might be available if we can get an estimate on how much this would cost.

Many thanks,

    do you have news about this interesting missing feature in DataTables ?

    I tried with jQuery-doubleScroll but was not able to get it work (jQuery-1.8.3, DataTables-1.9.4, jquery-ui-1.9.2, ColVis-1.0.8)

    Perhaps you can link to the page where you've tried to integrate them and see what might have done wrong?

    @Fran - sorry I missed your message back in January!

    First of all, thanks for all your hard work on DataTables. We replaced all of our tablesorter tables with it and have had great results. A scroll bar on top and bottom would be a great feature. I look forward to hearing more about it!

    The web site is http://metanetx.org/. You can see a DataTables example after clicking on "Pick from Repository".
    I have removed the code for the horizontal bar on top because it didn't work, and did not produce any error/warning messages.
