I can't get it to work, get the "fnProcessingIndicator is not a function" message in firebug. I have downloaded the fnProcessingIndicator.js file and verified it's present on the page (also verified it's presence within FireBug network section). Is this plugin still supposed to work?

    Hi, just make sure the dataTable() is correct as in lowercase dataTable and not DataTable.


    If I use DataTable I get "Uncaught TypeError: undefined is not a function "

    If I use dataTable is works.
