Hi,
I am trying to add data table plugin to dynamically added table($(body).append(""));

unable to add this plugin to that table actually
and heard that data table plugin will not be applied to the content which are not prepared in DOM is it right?

Can anybody please help me on this.

    DataTables will work on any HTML table element, regardless of when it is put ingot he DOM.

    This example shows it running on a table that is injected into the DOM: http://datatables.net/release-datatables/examples/data_sources/js_array.html

    See this tech note for details on that error: http://next.datatables.net/manual/tech-notes/3

    Also, in future, please link to tests cases when requesting help so we can look at the code and be able to offer the help you are asking for.
