Have a feature where double clicking on one of the search result rows takes you to the page it is in

I wasn't able to find that this had been already asked, but I think it could be quite useful.

Right now search draws up its own list of results, yet sometimes we want to go to the page where that result came from and continue from there.

    How about something like this: http://live.datatables.net/wataqije/1/edit . It's using the row().show() plugin,

    Hey, that works brilliantly Colin.

    But, why doesn't the documentation mention that clicking does this. It's not written out properly. At first I thought it was about showing the number of rows selected.

    The documentation doesn’t say that the software does this, because it doesn’t. Colin has added a dblclick event listener in his code to trigger the call to the child row display. The key is that we provide an API that will make it possible for you to do things with DataTables, but sometimes the wiring of such actions needs to be done by your code.

    If you have any suggestions for how our docs can be improved, they would be warmly welcomed.

    Sorry, my bad. Thank you for pointing that out. I'm afraid I didn't quite understand that from the plugin page where it said:

    See the row in datable by display the right pagination page
    This plugin permits to show the right page of DataTable to show the selected row
    Add an element to a huge table and go to the right pagination page

  • colincolin Posts: 12,659Questions: 0Answers: 2,164

    Yeah, I think that was lost in translation. It just meant the plugin takes you to the page where that row is located. I've updated the docs so they're legible.
