How to create custom filter buttons

How to create custom filter buttons

aarontharkeraarontharker Posts: 41Questions: 11Answers: 0

I have an editor table set up where the data is being filter with 2 where clauses. I want to be able to have a custom button that will reload the table minus one of those where clauses.

http://live.datatables.net/magodeye/1/edit?html,js

essentially I want the custom button to make it so "->where('hm_members.user_type', '7', '>')" is ignored but I can't think how to achieve this. Anyone have any ideas?

    Obviously that live.dt instance isnt going to work.. if you just need to share large amounts of code, use pastebin

    What you would probably need to do is send some extra information to the server to tell it that it should ignore a specific condition - the ajax.url() method for example could be used to set a GET parameter on the URL. The PHP script would then check for that if ( ! isset( $_GET['...'] ) ) { $editor->where( ... ); } etc.
