Greetings everyone,

I have a tricky problem and a pressing deadline ... I sure hope someone can help with this!

I have a data entry form that

a) includes a table with local data (no backend calls), and
b) it is instantiated in multiple places (both in the main work area and also in a slideup panel below the work area), but not at the same time

Link to see the problem: http://www.t4p.com/table-break/table-break.html

Debug ID: iqorir

After the following steps in the UI table-break.html, I see an error that seems to kill the table...

1) Bring up the UI, see the table with sample data under "Gizmo Details"
2) Click "Previous Requests" on the left-hand accordion menu, see a different unrelated page now
3) Click "Edit" button at the top, see the same data entry form as in step 1, but this time appearing in a slideup panel
4) Click "Submit New Requests" to reload the same UI page as in step 1 ... the Gizmo table is now broken

The error is: 'aoData' is null or not an object jquery.dataTables.js, line 472 character 4
[code]
/* Create the object for storing information about this new row */
var iRow = oSettings.aoData.length; <<<****************** HERE - oSettings is null
var oData = $.extend( true, {}, DataTable.models.oRow );
[/code]

I will continue trying to debug this, but being unknown and complex code for me, I think I need some help!

Thanks in advance,

/Mark

    I think I posted this in the wrong group, should have been DataTables 1.9 group??? Sorry!
    I'd move it to the other group if I knew how...

    What does the edit button actually do? It looks like it only breaks if you click that.

    It opens the slideup panel and loads another instance of the original data entry form into that panel. I wonder if the problem is related to repeated instances of the same data entry form coming and going in two places...?
