TableTools Print, Copy, Excel, PDF, CSV Buttons Not Behaving As Expected

Hi,

I just installed the version 1.9.4 of dataTables and 2.2.0 of TableTools and I have a strange behavior of TableTools.
The buttons are displayed and I don't have console errors.
Print works as expected even though the mouse pointer doesn't change when rolling over it.
Excel, PDF and CSV button don't trigger mouse pointer change either and no nothing when clicked.
Copy does trigger the mouse pointer change and exports to PDF actually, which seems to indicate that the swf path is ok.
Anyone else with that problem?

Thanks.

    Please link to a test case showing the problem, as required in the forum rules. It does sound like an SWF issue, but I can't say any more, since I don't know without a test case!

    Looks like you need to include the TableTools CSS file: https://github.com/DataTables/TableTools/blob/master/css/dataTables.tableTools.css

    Allan,
    It looks like it did did the trick thanks.
    Quick questions though:

    1) The Excel button seem to be exporting as csv, same as the csv button. Is that expected?
    2) is there a limit to the size of the table? I have about 3000 records and when I add more that 4 columns nothing is displayed.

    Thanks.

    Yes. See the discussion here: http://datatables.net/forums/discussion/4043/export-to-excel-wrong-extention-.csv./p1 .

    > 2) is there a limit to the size of the table? I have about 3000 records and when I add more that 4 columns nothing is displayed.

    There isn't anything hardcoded into DataTables. I've noticed that Flash gets really slow with larger tables, but there shouldn't be a limit to the size of the export - it just takes longer. Can you link use to a test case?
