    Not via DataTables. You could use jQuery's $().width() method though.

    In our application we need to know the witdh of each column or to define it programmatically
    You can refer to this example: agrisophia.nubilo.it:52531/test_plugin
    No widths are returned by jQuery (please refer to the log in the console)
    at the same time the configuration
    "columnDefs": [{ "width": 100, "targets": "_all" }]
    seems not to be take in account

    This is your code to display the columns width:

                    var datatablecolumns = $('#View_Summary_Group_Info_Table_' + subcenter_index + ' tbody tr td');
                    $.each(datatablecolumns, function( index, datatablecolumn ) {
                      //datatablecolumn.width = 50;
                      console.log('column:'+index+' width:'+datatablecolumn.width);
                    });
    

    You aren't using jQuery to get the column widths. Try this:

    console.log('column:'+index+' width:'+ $(datatablecolumn).width());
