Group totals are at the end of the page instead of after the group and are "NaN".

Group totals are at the end of the page instead of after the group and are "NaN".

Hi, I wand to group on the first column and total the last three columns. I used the example provided however the totals appear at the end of the page instead of after the group and are "NaN". Also, is it possible to only provide a total at the end of a group and not when a group finishes at the end of a page (i.e., if a group goes over three pages have one total at the end)?

The code is (I tried with rowGroup first):

 var activityUpdateTable = $('#activityUpdateTable').DataTable( {

        "info":     false,
        dom: 'Bfrtip',
        buttons: ['copy', 'csv', 'excel', 'pdf', 'print'],
        columns: [                  
              { data: null, render: function ( data, type, row ) {
                  // Combine the first and last names into a single table field
                  return data.surname+', '+data.firstname;
              } },
              {data: 'startDate',
                  defaultContent: ""},
              {data: 'type',
                  defaultContent: ""},
              {data: 'description',
                  defaultContent: ""},
              {data: 'kilometres',
                  defaultContent: "0"},
              {data: 'nightsUnderCanvas',
                  defaultContent: "0",
              },
              {data: 'nightsInBuilding',
                  defaultContent: "0",
              },
             ],
         columnDefs: [ {
             targets: [1],
             render: $.fn.dataTable.render.moment( 'DD/MM/YYYY' )
         } ],

         rowGroup: {
            startRender: null,
            endRender: function ( rows, group ) {
                var kmTotal = rows
                    .data()
                    .pluck(4)
                    .reduce( function (a, b) {
                        return a + b*1;
                    }, 0);

                var canvasTotal = rows
                    .data()
                    .pluck(5)
                    .reduce( function (a, b) {
                        return a + b*1;
                    }, 0);

                var buildingTotal = rows
                 .data()
                 .pluck(6)
                 .reduce( function (a, b) {
                     return a + b*1;
                 }, 0);

                return $('<tr/>')
                    .append( '<td colspan="4">Totals:</td>' )
                    .append( '<td>'+kmTotal+'</td>' )
                    .append( '<td>'+canvasTotal+'</td>' )
                    .append( '<td>'+buildingTotal+'</td>' );
            },
            dataSrc: 0
        },
    } );

    Hi @Glyndwr ,

    Not by default, but you can do some clever stuff to make it work, see here. I've made the assumption that one column would be unique, the Name column in that examples case. Hope that helps.

    Regarding the NaN, please post a link to that page, or modify my example to show it, and I'll be happy to take a look,

    Cheers,

    Colin

    Hi Colin,

    I am using scrolling to remove the paging issue. I will try to get an example of the NaN (which I suspect stands for not a number) posted. The fields were string so I have made sure the returned field are integer and float. This did not resolve the issue.

    Kind regards,

    Glyn

    Hi Colin,

    This is the example which has two issues now. First the NaN and second the grouping from my previous question is not showing.

    Hi @Glyndwr ,

    The object has different member variables, so that's why the groupings and the totals aren't showing. See here.

    Cheers,

    script not showing, can I have example from jsfiddle ?

  • kthorngrenkthorngren Posts: 8,880Questions: 25Answers: 2,022

    When you click the link I provided did you scroll to the bottom of the Javascript tab? The script is there.
