Using mRender on a column with HTML

Using mRender on a column with HTML

Hi!

I have an issue with implementing the responsive extension to my datatable. When the table collapses into responsive design the link will not show, but only the "data" variable

Im using the following function to create a link in the column:

      {
            "mData": "id",
            "sClass": "center",
            "mRender": function (data, type, full) {
    return '<a href="" class="editor_edit">Change</a> / <a class="update" href="php/update.php?id=' + data +    ' ">Update</a>';
            }
        }

I can provide a test case if thats needed, but I thought maybe someone was already familiar with the issue.

    Yup you are right. It is the raw data that is displayed rather than the rendered data.

    There isn't currently a way around this other than to create your own child renderer (responsive.details.renderer) and have it read the rendered value from the HTML.

    Something I'll look into adding in a future version.

    If you dont mind me asking a related question...

    How can I word-wrap the cells in the responsive container?

    Use white-space: normal; in the CSS I would imagine. Targeting whatever cell / row / element, etc that you need.

    Added this to the css and it worked, thanks!

    td.child {
    white-space: normal;
    }
