I'm having a problem on my website when loading a datatable,
It gives this error:
[quote]Datatables warning (table id = 'usertable'): cannot reinitialise Datatable. To retrieve the DataTables object for this table, pass no arguments or see the docs for bRetrieve and bDestroy[/quote]

The table is looking like this:

And in the code of my javascript it's looking like this:
[code] if($("#usertable").length > 0){
var opt = {
"sPaginationType": "full_numbers",
"sSearch": "Zoek: ",
"sInfo": "Rij _START_ tot rij _END_ van de _TOTAL_ rijen",
"sLengthMenu": "_MENU_ Rijen per pagina"
'sDom': "lfrtip",
'aoColumnDefs' : [
{ 'bSortable': false, 'aTargets': [0, 5] }
'oColVis': {
"buttonText": "Change columns "
'oTableTools' : {
"sSwfPath": "js/plugins/datatable/swf/copy_csv_xls_pdf.swf"
var oTable = $('#usertable').dataTable(opt);

$('.dataTables_filter input').attr("placeholder", "Zoek hier ...");
$(".dataTables_length select").wrap("").chosen({
disable_search_threshold: 9999999
$('input', oTable.fnGetNodes()).prop('checked',this.checked);
$.datepicker.setDefaults( {
dateFormat: "dd-mm-yy"
"sPlaceHolder" : "head:after",
'sRangeFormat': "{from}{to}",
'aoColumns': [
type: "text",
type: "number-range",
type: "date-range"
type: "number-range",
type: "number-range"
$("#usertable").css("width", '100%');

I want to have special filtering and the table tools.
And can someone tell me where I can change the words first, previous, last and next from the pagination because I have to translate it in dutch but can't find it.

Thank you in adventage!

    Sounds like you are initialising the table twice, as the error says. not sure why that would be without a link to the page though since the code about doesn't show what triggers it.
