Can we use FixedHeader functionality with ServerSide option?

Hi Guys

We are using SpringBoot Java application with DataTables and also ServerSide set to true. When tried to use the configuration option specified for the FixedHeader, it is completely ignored, no errors either. Any suggestions or any additional setup necessary to trigger the functionality?

Below is the JS code :

    $(document).ready(function() {

        var matchingRepositoriesTable = $('#matchingRepositories').DataTable({
            ajax: '/subjectrepository/select/datatables/',
            serverSide: true,
            processing: true,
            deferLoading: 0,
            fixedHeader: {
                header: true,
                footer: true
            order: [ ['12','desc'],['13','desc'] ],
            drawCallback: function (data, type, full, meta) {
                    placement: 'right',
                    title: 'heyo',
                    container: 'body',
                    html: true 
            columns: [
                    data: 'createDate',
                    width: '5%',

    Answer ✓

    Have you loaded the FixedHeader library files (js/css)?

    It works in this example with server side processing:

    Many Thanks :) Kevin for providing an example and confirming the server side processing.

    Only change was that I had to download the latest set of js/css and it worked all fine.

    Hi Kevin
    It worked well on the first screen but on the second when tried to implement the same functionality the fixed header is not aligned with the table header. Fixed header is starting without the left margin. Any suggestion or fix? Thanks in advance.
