Empty aaSorting setting causes error.

Hi Allan.

I tried to disable default sorting behavior, and add this peace of code to configuration - aaSorting: []. I got an error, "aaSort[aaSort.length - 1] is undefined" in _fnSort() function. Is it possible to disable default sorting at all?

    Hi Andrew,

    Yes indeed this should be possible and I made a small error in my changes when introducing aaSortingFixed which breaks this. I'll release a new beta shortly with a fix.

    One more thing: i applied "bSort: false" setting to entire table, and it is impossible to do sorting, however, there is still class "sorting" applied to each head cell, which shows disabled sort arrows for the head cells. Is it correct behavior, or sorting arrows shouldn't appear at all in that case?

    Hi Andrew,

    This behaviour would definitely be wrong. However, my feature enablement example (in both 1.4 and 1.5 beta) correctly don't apply these classes:

    http://datatables.net/1.5-beta/examples/basic_init/filter_only.html
    http://datatables.net/examples/example_filter_only.html

    Do you have a link to an example of the problem?

    Thanks,
    Allan

    Allan, i can't provide a link right now, since my site is behind a proxy. My grid uses server-side datasource. Please to disable grid sorting in one of server-side examples of beta 5. If this behavior will not be reproduced, then i will build my own example.

    Hi Andrew,

    Thanks for clarifying your setup. Indeed there was a bug when using server-side processing and applying the sorting classes. I've fixed this now and just re-released beta 6 with that fix.

    Thanks
