Editor not invoked in child table

Editor not invoked in child table

shatrughanshatrughan Posts: 60Questions: 10Answers: 0

Hi everyone..

Given below is the link to my page where I have used parent-child system.
https://e-reporting.in/Data/HTC_Bill/index1.php

When I expand the first column i.e. Bill **of any row, the child table gets populated and new row could be added using Add Bill button. But when click on subsequent rows to expand them, the **Add Bill Button doesn't work as an **empty editor **without any fields do appear.

Please see and help me to get rid of the above.

Thanks & Regards

    My primary table is htc. Here is how I coded the parent-child tables but editor in child table is working once after loading.

    function format(rowData) {
                  var childTable = '<table id="cl' + rowData.id + '" class="display compact nowrap w-90" width="90%">' +
                  '<thead style=""><tr><th>Bill</th><th>Bill Number</th><th>Bill Date</th><th>Bill From</th><th>Bill To</th><th>Bags</th><th>Qty</th><th>Handling_Amt</th><th>TPT_Amt</th><th>Total</th><th>Site</th></tr></thead >' +
                  '</table>';
                  return $(childTable).toArray();
                }
            
    
    $('#htc tbody').on('click', 'td.details-control', function () {
                                  var tr = $(this).closest('tr');
                                  var row = table.row(tr);
                                  var rowData = row.data();
                                  if (row.child.isShown()) {
                                    // This row is already open - close it
                                    row.child.hide();
                                    tr.removeClass('shown');
                        
                                    // Destroy the Child Datatable
                                    $('#cl' + rowData.id).DataTable().destroy();
                                  }
                                  else {
                        
                                    row.child(format(rowData)).show();
                                    var id = rowData.id;

    Seems like your code should work. Even opening, editing, closing and reopening the same child row fails. The only thing I see that stands out as different from the https://datatables.net/blog/2019-01-11#Creating-a-DataTable">example code is you aren't using table.detach();. This may be needed for the Editor to properly attach to the next Child Row.

    Thanks @kthorngren

    I tried table.detach() as well but to no avail as the problem still persits.
    Also, opening a new row without closing the already open met with the same fate while using its child editor.

    I found a thread -
    http://live.datatables.net/mukirowi/55/edit
    but, I couldn't figure out how to incorporate Editor with each of the tables.
    Please suggest...

  • kthorngrenkthorngren Posts: 8,082Questions: 25Answers: 1,816

    The blog I linked is from the developer and provides the proper solution. The other thing I noticed is you use id for the child tables where the blog example does not. There is a link to the full JS code here. Maybe comparing ti to yours you will find the issue.

    Kevin

  • shatrughanshatrughan Posts: 60Questions: 10Answers: 0

    @Kevin Sir, the blog you mentioned reflects Parent-Child tables upto two levels only but I am in need of three and as such I used http://live.datatables.net/mukirowi/55/edit which works fine but unable to code editor part properly. Please guide.

  • kthorngrenkthorngren Posts: 8,082Questions: 25Answers: 1,816
    Answer ✓

    Are you in need of using Editor for the third level? Your example doesn't show it.

    As I mentioned the best and cleanest option is to follow the blog example. You can create a child level be adding the .detail-control to the first child and using an event that calls a different function to open the second child.

    I took the blog example and added a second child here:
    http://live.datatables.net/hakatehi/1/edit

    Removed all the ajax calls for the child as I don't have access to the server scripts in the blog. The Editor works in standalone mode. I enabled the second child with Editor but you don't have to. Note the use of stopPropagation() to keep the parent table click event from running when opening the second child. I also needed to incorporate rowId and idSrc for the Editor to work in the example. You probably won't need to worry about this.

    One more help please..
    I want to change the background of child table.
    How to set css thereof ?

  • kthorngrenkthorngren Posts: 8,082Questions: 25Answers: 1,816
    Answer ✓

    If you inspect the child row you will see that it is a child of a tr. After the row().show) statement you can use something like table.parent().css('background', '#90b2e8'); to set the background color. For example:
    http://live.datatables.net/hakatehi/3/edit

    Thanks Kevin once again...You are so generous. :)

  • shatrughanshatrughan Posts: 60Questions: 10Answers: 0

    Is there any option to set width of label of particular field ...Actually, I have a radio field with four options but one of them gets placed below in next row. To get it placed properly, I want the width of label be reduced to the max possible.

    Please suggest ..
    Thanks & Regards
