    Hi,

    thanks for your question, and sorry for the trouble.

    This should be possible by pasting “Custom Command” like
    "dom": "lfrtipB"
    into the “Custom Commands” textfield on the “Edit” screen of the table.
    The B stands for the Buttons Extension, while the other letters stand for the other regular table elements, according to the DataTables Documentation at https://datatables.net/reference/option/dom

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Excellent! Thanks for the quick ansewr. How to change the labels on the buttons globally and to each table?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Good to hear that this helped!

    Changing these labels is a bit more tricky, unfortunately. The DataTables documentation offers two ways: https://datatables.net/extensions/buttons/examples/column_visibility/text.html
    Your best chance might therefore be to use the TablePress Extension from https://tablepress.org/extensions/change-datatables-strings/ and insert something like

    buttons: {
        print: "Print this"
    }

    as an extra entry. I have never tried this myself though.

    Regards,

    Good. I will try it.

    And the last question. Sorry for bothering) How I can use “Use DataTales” without “Table Head Row”?

    I have tables that do not have Table Head Row. I’m forced to add an empty row and hide it via css (display: none), which is not entirely correct, but! when the pdf is rendered the hidden row of head displayed as black row.

    Hi,

    unfortunately, using DataTables without the Table Head Row is not possible. This is a requirement of the external JS library, I’m afraid.

    The approach of adding an empty row and hiding it via CSS is the only way that I know as well.

    Hello!
    I again have a question)
    How can I change the placeholder of a table with a specific ID.
    I know how to change it globally, but I do not know how to do it for the table I need.
    I ask for your help. Thank you.

    Hi,

    what do you mean with “placeholder” here?

    “searchPlaceholder” for search input field

    (@tobiasbg)

    Hi,

    ah, ok. That’s tricky.
    You could try to experiment with a “Custom Command”:

    "language": $.extend( {}, DataTables_language["en_US"], { "searchPlaceholder": "Customized placeholder" } )

    Thank you. It worked! You, as always, helped in time.
    I tried to solve this problem like here: https://datatables.net/reference/option/language.searchPlaceholder
    But it did not work (

    Hi,

    the code that you found should also work, but it would override the global language settings, that’s why we need to merge the objects.
