Hello, i've been trying to get this to work, but my lack of knowledge is giving me a head ache... Does someone knows how to achieve the following:

i want to draw a button in the "bekijk" column with two profile_id's (init and init2), because i'm very new with data tables i have absolutly no clue how to achieve this.... ofcourse the statement below is drawing two columns, I want it to be in one column with the two [VAL] statements in one link... is this even possible?

Thanks in prosper

   $config['aColumnsin'] =  array('b.mod_name as m_name', 'c.profile_name as mfrom', 'd.profile_name as mto', 'e.message as cnr','a.cron as ts',  'c.profile_id as init', 'd.profile_id as init2' );
$config['aColumnsout'] = array('m_name', 'mfrom', 'mto', 'cnr','ts','init', 'init2' );
$config['sIndexColumn'] = "a.moderator_id ";
$config['searchable'] = array(1);
$config['sTable'] = " moderator_data a LEFT JOIN moderator b on a.moderator_id = b.moderator_id  LEFT JOIN user_profiles c on a._from = c.profile_id LEFT JOIN user_profiles d on a._to = d.profile_id LEFT JOIN messages e on a.message_id = e.message_id ".$clause;
$config['aConfig']['init']= '<a href="../admin/chatscherm?profile=[VAL]&to=" class="btn btn-mini"><i class="icon-share"></i> Bekijk</a>';
     $config['aConfig']['init2']= '<a href="../admin/chatscherm?profile=&to=[VAL]" class="btn btn-mini"><i class="icon-share"></i> Bekijk</a>';

    Perfectly possible. Personally I'd do it using columns.render rather than doing in PHP, but it should be perfectly possible there as well.

    Start by defining your columns. Look at the examples here:
