TableTools copying all rows not just filtered

TableTools copying all rows not just filtered

I am trying to setup the datatable so when I filter the data using the search box I can copy the filtered results. The table will filter as it is supposed to but when I copy or save it copies all rows including those that don't match the filter.

Any guidance would be appreciated.


This is my initiation code.


[code]
$('#procedure_list').dataTable({
"bLengthChange": true,
"iDisplayLength": 10,
"sDom": 'T<"clear">lfrtip',
"oTableTools": {
"sSwfPath": "assets/plugins/data-tables/extras/tabletools/swf/copy_csv_xls.swf",
"aButtons": [ "copy", "csv" ]
},
"aoColumnDefs": [
{ "sType": "string", "aTargets": [ 0 ] }
],
"aaSorting": [[ 0, "desc" ]]
});
[/code]

    You can use the oSelectorOpts ( http://datatables.net/extras/tabletools/button_options#oSelectorOpts ) option to tell TableTools to export only filtered rows, the current page, etc.

    It doesn't seem to be an option in the latest version. How can I only export filtered rows?

    Ooops - it is there in the code, just not in the documentation... I'll correct that just now, but for the moment, use the legacy documentation: http://legacy.datatables.net/extras/tabletools/button_options#oSelectorOpts .

    Doesn't work for me either when exporting to pdf. For clipboard, csv and xls export it works. I'm using this configuration:

    var tableToolsButtonsOptions = {
        bSelectedOnly: true,
        oSelectorOpts: {
            filter: "applied"
        }
    }, tableTools: {
        aButtons: [$.extend({
                sExtends: "copy",
                sButtonText: "Copy to clipboard"
            }, tableToolsButtonsOptions), {
                sExtends: "collection",
                sButtonText: "Export",
                aButtons: [
                    $.extend({
                        sExtends: "csv"
                    }, tableToolsButtonsOptions),
                    $.extend({
                        sExtends: "xls"
                    }, tableToolsButtonsOptions),
                    $.extend({
                        sExtends: "pdf",
                        sPdfOrientation: "landscape",
                        sPdfSize: "A3"
                    }, tableToolsButtonsOptions)
                ]
            }
        ]
    }
