hi i am trying to load an image and display it but i get the following error:
Uncaught TypeError: editor.file is not a function

I would like to know in which js file this function is.
NOTE: I see that if you save the image to the database and the file uploads to the folder.

var editor; // use a global for the submit and return data rendering in the examples
$(document).ready(function() {
    editor = new $.fn.dataTable.Editor( {
        "ajax": "Ajax/Staff",
        "table": "#example",
        "fields": [
        {"label": "Titulo:","name": "Titulo" }, { "label": "Autor:",  "name": "Autor" }, {
                "label": "Editorial:",
                "name": "Editorial"
            }, {"label": "Nro Pag:","name": "paginas"
            }, { "label": "Año:", "name": "anio"
            }, { "label": "Forrado:","name": "Forrado", type:  "radio",
                options: [
                    { label: "SI", value: "SI" },
                    { label: "NO",  value: "NO" }  ],
                def: "NO"
            }, {
                "label": "Observacion:",
                "name": "Observacion"
            }, {
                label: "Image:",
                name: "image",
                type: "upload",
                display: function ( file_id ) {
                    return '<img src="'+editor.file( 'files', file_id ).web_path+'"/>';
                },
                clearText: "Clear",
                noImageText: 'No image'
            }
        ]
    } );

    My guess is that you have another assignment to the variable editor somewhere else on your page?

    Change:

    editor = new $.fn.dataTable.Editor( {

    to be:

    var editor = new $.fn.dataTable.Editor( {
    

    and drop the var editor; on the first line.

    If that doesn't fix it, can you show me the full Javascript for your page, or better yet, a link to your page.

    Thanks,
    Allan

    Answer ✓

    Ah - thank you! You are using a really old version of Editor - 1.5.4, which was released back in 2015.

    What to do is to assign your DataTable to a variable:

    var table = $('#example').DataTable( {
    

    and then change editor.file( to be table.file( and it should work. The file() method use to be on the DataTable, but I changed it around 1.6 I think.

    Btw - I don't see an Editor license on your account. Could you confirm which address was used to purchase it, and I'll get your account linked up correctly.

    thanks alan this is fantastic!

    Regarding the license, download it as a trial.
    Now I am evaluating buying because it seems very good to me.
