DataTable not refreshing after the edit

DataTable not refreshing after the edit

Jain BazaarJain Bazaar Posts: 2Questions: 1Answers: 0

My datatable is not refereshing after I make the edit. My database is getting changed. Server is replying with the data parameter defining the data object for the edited row. Couldnt identify the issue. Plz help.

here goes my whole script

/* Formatting function for row details */
function format ( d ) {
    // `d` is the original data object for the row
    return '<table cellpadding="5" cellspacing="0" border="0" style="padding-left:50px;">'+
        '<tr>'+
        '<td>Source:</td>' +
        '<td>' + d.referred_by + '</td>' +
        '<td>Address:</td>' +
        '<td>' + d.lead_address + '</td>' +
       
    '</tr>' +
    '<tr>' +
    '<td>Status</td>' +
    '<td>' + d.lead_status + '</td>' +
        '<td>Remarks:</td>' +
        '<td>' + d.other_info + '</td>' +
    '</tr>' +
    '<tr>'+
    '<td>Presented By:</td>' +
    '<td>' + d.other_info2 + '</td>' +
    '<td></td>' +
    '<td></td>' +
'</tr>' +
    '</table>';
}

    Try adding rowId: 'lead_id' to your DataTable initialisation please? It shouldn't be required, but it might help.

    If that doesn't fix it, can you send me a link to the page showing the issue so I can check it out?

    Thanks,
    Allan

    I have added rowId to datatable initialization. but that didnt work. The link to the page is http://testing-env.gfdcikecek.us-east-2.elasticbeanstalk.com/readLeads. The login details is 1234 and 123.

    Also, expanding all child rows on initialization, column search has stopped working after adding inline editor.

    Please help

    Hi,

    Thanks for the link. I believe the issue with the table not updating after edit is that the JSON sent back by the server does not match what Editor expects.

    It has an outer array which I missed before:

    [{
        "data": [{
            "action": null,
            "agent_assigned": "",
            "app_date": "23 dec",
            "app_time": "10",
            "last_action_at": null,
            "last_action_by": "test",
            "lead_address": "ch",
            "lead_area": "wsx",
            "lead_buss_name": "M C",
            "lead_category": "Insurance Consultants",
            "lead_id": 1,
            "lead_name": "test1",
            "lead_number1": "1234",
            "lead_status": "",
            "lead_telecaller": "Navin",
            "other_info": "test",
            "other_info2": "",
            "referred_by": "Vendors "
        }, {
    

    It should be:

    {
        "data": [{
            "action": null,
            "agent_assigned": "",
            "app_date": "23 dec",
            "app_time": "10",
            "last_action_at": null,
            "last_action_by": "test",
            "lead_address": "ch",
            "lead_area": "wsx",
            "lead_buss_name": "M C",
            "lead_category": "Insurance Consultants",
            "lead_id": 1,
            "lead_name": "test1",
            "lead_number1": "1234",
            "lead_status": "",
            "lead_telecaller": "Navin",
            "other_info": "test",
            "other_info2": "",
            "referred_by": "Vendors "
        }, {
    

    Also note that your edit is returning everything not just the row that was edited, which will impact performance.

    Also, expanding all child rows on initialization, column search has stopped working after adding inline editor.

    Its currently commented out:

         /* // Show all child nodes
            table.rows().every( function () {
                this.child(format(this.data())).show();
                this.nodes().to$().addClass('shown');
            });   */
    

    That code needs to go in initComplete to execute once the Ajax data has been loaded.
