Filtering and (5 posts)

    Hi Tobias,
    I encountered this problem with the filtering tool for the tables. It seems it entirely omits rows that include the <span> and <div> tags. Do you happen to know a workaround for this?

    Hi,

    I'm not aware of any such restrictions.
    Additionally, as the filtering is provided by an external library (DataTables), you would need to ask its developer, likely at the forums at http://www.datatables.net

    Best wishes,
    Tobias

    Thanks Tobias,
    I just needed to make sure there wasn't an error on your side, before turning to Allan at DataTables. It seems the problem is limited to Opera and we're trying to work things out.

    Here's the link to the conversation in case anyone encounters a similar problem and comes through here first.

    A follow-up note Tobias. It seems we narrowed down the problem to the <br /> tag. This break tag appears in the code when I change a line with ENTER in a cell.

    example:

    <a href...></a><br />
    <div>...</div>
    A cell containing this is ignored by the filter in Opera.(break tag written with a space)

    <a href...></a><br/><div>...</div>
    This works normally in Opera (break tag without a space)

    Hi,

    yes, that <br/> tag is inserted by the plugin, whenever you press Enter in a cell. That is the expected behavior, as the textfield were designed to hold plain text, where this is needed. Once one enters HTML (or JavaScript, where this is even more severe), this might be unwanted, yes.

    However, it should obviously not cause an error in the filtering, so I'm surprised to hear that Opera is having trouble with that...

    Best wishes,
    Tobias
