02.type: “POST”,
03.cache: true,
04.url: host + “/includes/functions/bookmarkbody.php”,
05.data: “workpage=” + selectedTabID,
06.success: function(msg)
08. $(’#myTable’).html(msg);
10.complete: function()
12. $(”#myTable”).dataTable();
17.selected: -1
(FF)javascript console show errors
error: nThs is null
source: jquery.dataTables.js

    the error was in the inner loop (I do not know how it say in English , google's translator too :-D ), I have another question, I have a lot of tabs, all dynamic data, column headings and rows.
    There are several tabs, and for each tabs different data and different column headings,
    the transition to the tab ($('# myTable '). datatable ()), the transition to the next again ($('# myTable'). datatable ()), creates multiple instances of objects (another line search count of rows(select) etc.), how to remove the old instance

    fxFade: true,
    fxSpeed: 'slow',
    select: function(event, ui)
    var selectedTabID = ui.panel.id;

    type: "POST",
    cache: true,
    url: host + "/includes/functions/bookmarkbody.php",
    data: "workpage=" + selectedTabID,
    success: function(msg)
    complete: function()

    selected: -1

    Hi mrdev,

    I think if you could refer to your other thread for the discussion of the Ajax issue you are having ( http://datatables.net/forums/comments.php?DiscussionID=993&page=1#Item_3 ) rather than having the same discussion twice, that would be good :-).
