Bootstrap 5

This example show Editor's Bootstrap 5 styling integration working with a datatable input field. Otherwise this example is identical to the basic DataTable input example.

We use the nested editing example as the basis for this example, with the only difference being that it is Bootstrap 5 styled. While the nested editing example is a little more complex than many others, it demonstrates the ability to use different styling libraries even in complex scenarios.

The Javascript shown below is used to initialise the table shown in this example:

var editor; // use a global for the submit and return data rendering in the examples $(document).ready(function() { var siteEditor = new $.fn.dataTable.Editor( { ajax: '../php/sitesNested.php', fields: [ { label: 'City:', name: 'name' }, { label: 'Continent:', name: 'continent', type: 'datatable', options: [ { label: 'Africa', value: 'Africa' }, { label: 'Asia', value: 'Asia' }, { label: 'Australia', value: 'Australia' }, { label: 'Europe', value: 'Europe' }, { label: 'North America', value: 'North America' }, { label: 'South America', value: 'South America' } ] } ] } ); editor = new $.fn.dataTable.Editor( { ajax: "../php/joinNested.php", table: "#example", fields: [ { label: "First name:", name: "users.first_name" }, { label: "Last name:", name: "users.last_name" }, { label: "Phone #:", name: "users.phone" }, { label: 'Site:', name: 'users.site', type: 'datatable', editor: siteEditor, optionsPair: { value: 'id', }, config: { ajax: '../php/sitesNested.php', buttons: [ { extend: 'create', className: 'btn-light', editor: siteEditor }, { extend: 'edit', className: 'btn-light', editor: siteEditor }, { extend: 'remove', className: 'btn-light', editor: siteEditor } ], columns: [ { title: 'Name', data: 'name' }, { title: 'Continent', data: 'continent' } ] } } ] } ); var table = $('#example').DataTable( { lengthChange: false, ajax: { url: "../php/joinNested.php", type: 'POST' }, columns: [ { data: "users.first_name" }, { data: "users.last_name" }, { data: "users.phone" }, { data: "sites.name" } ], select: true } ); // Display the buttons new $.fn.dataTable.Buttons( table, [ { extend: "create", editor: editor }, { extend: "edit", editor: editor }, { extend: "remove", editor: editor } ] ); table.buttons().container() .appendTo( $('.col-md-6:eq(0)', table.table().container() ) ); } );

In addition to the above code, the following Javascript library files are loaded for use in this example:

The HTML shown below is the raw HTML table element, before it has been enhanced by DataTables:

This example uses a little bit of additional CSS beyond what is loaded from the library files (below), in order to correctly display the table. The additional CSS used is shown below:

The following CSS library files are loaded for use in this example to provide the styling of the table:

This table loads data by Ajax. The latest data that has been loaded is shown below. This data will update automatically as any additional data is loaded.

The script used to perform the server-side processing for this table is shown below. Please note that this is just an example script using PHP. Server-side processing scripts can be written in any language, using the protocol described in the DataTables documentation.
