Having trouble combining render functions

Having trouble combining render functions

cj1005cj1005 Posts: 138Questions: 43Answers: 1

I have a textarea within my datatable and I currently use the ellipsis renderer to limit the initial display to 70 characters, but I also need to make sure 'carriage returns' and 'line feeds' are respected as well, I can do this by replacing \n or \r with <br> which works fine, but I do not know how to combine these two as one line.

The two separate working renders are as follows:

, render: $.fn.dataTable.render.ellipsis(70, true, true)

or

, render: function(data) { return data.replace(/(?:\r\n|\r|\n)/g, '<br>') }

So, could someone please tell me how to write the above two lines into one line of code?

Thanks, Chris

    This example here is doing something similar to that. It calls the ellipsis() function first, then doing other stuff with the string,
