I was previously using DataTables 1.6 and getting data by specifying a sAjaxSource
and a fnServerData
to process the returned results. I was then building the data for the table and passing it to the callback. However I wasn't just putting strings into my table, but objects and integers. I would then define a fnRender
for the columns containing objects which would turn the objects into string to be displayed in the table.
With the upgrade to 1.7 all data that the fnRender
on the column gets are strings so I have to convert integers back and the objects are lost.
Is this a bug in 1.7 or was I abusing the datatables API in 1.6?
