Unpopulated Data Table

New to data tables, but I am not seeing a secondary request going from the browser to obtain data for a server side data population.

[code]
$(document).ready(function() {
$('#userList').dataTable( {
"bProcessing": true,
"bServerSide": true,
"sAjaxSource": "/index.php?controller=identity&action=getUserListFull",
"aoColumns": [
{ "mData": "firstName" },
{ "mData": "userEmail" },
{ "mData": "cellPhone" },
{ "mData": "addressLineOne" },
{ "mData": "" }
]
} );
} );
[/code]

The getUserListFill returns a Json package similar the one shown below:

[code]
{"sEcho": 1, "iTotalRecords": "2","iTotalDisplayRecords": "2","aoData":[{"identityId":"1","userName":"Admin","userEmail":hornist@gmail.com","firstName":"Steve","lastName":"hornist","cellNumber":"727-333-4444","phoneNumber":null,"addressLineOne":"17 ThatAve","addressLineTwo":null,"addressCity":"Coka Park","addressState":"FL","addressPostalCode":"32777"},{"identityId":"2","userName":"Dwayne","userEmail":"soup@gmail.com","firstName":"Darth","lastName":"vadre","cellNumber":"620-425-2299","phoneNumber":null,"addressLineOne":"172 MarcusAve","addressLineTwo":null,"addressCity":"Winter Wonderland","addressState":"FL","addressPostalCode":"33689"}]}
[/code]

    First thing I would suggest is upgrading to 1.9.4. You are using a very old version of DataTables there. On which doesn't support mData in fact ( which was introduced in 1.9.4 - it was called mDataProp in 1.8+).

    I did drop in the latest version, but still get the following error:

    DataTables warning (table id = 'userList'): Requested unknown parameter '1' from the data source for row 0

    This issue has to do with a column span. Resolved by ensuring the column count matches.

    Each column in the table must have a unique cell in the header (i.e. one which doesn't span columns) so that DataTables can attach sorting controls to it and more generally use it for column detection.
