Since DataTables 1.10.25 Fixed Columns causes loading the serverside data twice

Hello,

Since DataTables 1.10.25 Fixed Columns causes loading the serverside data twice. In 1.10.24 it was OK.

Here is the link to the debug-info (https://debug.datatables.net/ozugel )
Has anyone any clue on this?

(I can try to reproduce it in JS-bin, but I want to ask first for any easy fix :) ...)

    Interesting, I recreated the issue here:

    You could use deferLoading to eliminate the first request until a fix is available. Uncomment //deferLoading: true, in the test case to see it in action.

    Thanks for that test case, Kevin, that demonstrates it nicely!

    I've raised it internally (DD-2042 for my reference) and we'll report back here when there's an update.

    Cheers,

    Hi Kevin, Colin,

    Thanks for the reply!!
    I'll try it on my site, and let you know!

    So I tried on my site:

    The basic work-around works, but on my site I have a different approach:
    Fixed Columns is default not set, then i read the data from the server and let DT fill the table. Then in fnInitComplete() I compare the scrollWidth with the dataWidth. If the scrollWidth greater than the dataWidth, I do a $.fn.dataTable.FixedColumns() to activate the Fixed Columns. With 'deferLoading' active, in this case data is not read from the server at all. ( reading the function of 'deferLoading' this seems logical)

    So thanks for the work-around, but I think I go back to 1.10.24 for the time being, waiting for the fix.

    Thank you !!

    Yep, deferLoading won't help in your case :smile:
