First, DataTables are really useful :). We have a feature request here, wish to be included in the coming release. We would like having one or more rows sticky in the top or bottom of the table, which means keep displaying on the top or bottom of the table when in different page or after column sort. Something like sticky threads in bbs software, but more sticky. Top sticky case: when you need a summary row always keep on the top. Bottom sticky case: when you need to have several rows (normally would be displayed in later page) display (hilighted) on the bottom of the first page.
If this request can be done thru current callback/API, please let me know.
