css issue while using multi select and scroll feature in datatables

I am using datatable's multi select feature and scrollX and scrollY with various other features as well. But the features particularly multiselect and sScrollX, sScrollY seems to conflict eachother.

multiselect only

While using multifilter with scroll feature, the width of multiselect textbox seem to shift right. With more than 40 columns, the UI gets worse.

I dig into the rendered html with firebug and found that,
1. In multiselect only, there are no styles for width






2. But after using scroll X and Y feature i.e. ( sScrollX, sScrollY), styles appears





And the culprit here seems to be the style="width: XXpx;" which is being rendred by the javascript, for each 'th'

element.style {
width: XXpx;
}

Note: XX above refers to two digit number, e.g 14

I even tried to use css feature overflow:auto; for the entire table which works perfectly but now the scroll bar is for the entire table. But I also have another features like tableTools and Colvis feature at the top which comes under vertical scroll bar as well. So this was not a solution.

Please shed some light on this issue.

    Can you please link to a test case showing the issue? Have you got width:100% on the select lists or something like that?

    With scrolling enabled DataTables has to set a width on the columns, otherwise the header, footer and body wouldn't align.

    Hi Allan,
    Please have a look, I've used sScrollY:300 for this demo
