How to access the Fixed Column table?

How can I get access to the fixed column rows that are being displayed? Not the ones that the user interacts with and that the DataTable API can give you access to. For instance I need to be able to change the background color of a set of the rows if x happens. I keep thinking I can get to it by $("#tableID").DataTable().fixedColumns().rows() but that just gets me back to the underlying DataTable rows, which are the wrong ones. Thanks.

    What I would typically suggest here is that you update the background row (which is the one the DataTable API will give you) and then call fixedColumns().update() to redraw the FixedColumn which will then match the new styling.
