Internationalisation

As with DataTables, the interface that is presented to the end user by Editor can have the language strings used customised as you wish. This allows Editor's interface to be presented in languages other than the default English - indeed this can be useful to modify the default English strings if you so require.

This customisation is done through the i18n initialisation options. See the internationalisation manual for further information.

This example shows how Editor and DataTables may have their language strings customised. In this example French is used to show this ability.

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() { editor = new $.fn.dataTable.Editor( { ajax: "../php/staff.php", table: "#example", fields: [ { label: "Prénom:", name: "first_name" }, { label: "Nom de famille:", name: "last_name" }, { label: "Position:", name: "position" }, { label: "Bureau:", name: "office" }, { label: "Téléphone:", name: "extn" }, { label: "Date de début:", name: "start_date", type: "datetime" }, { label: "Salaire:", name: "salary" } ], i18n: { create: { button: "Nouveau", title: "Créer nouvelle entrée", submit: "Créer" }, edit: { button: "Modifier", title: "Modifier entrée", submit: "Actualiser" }, remove: { button: "Supprimer", title: "Supprimer", submit: "Supprimer", confirm: { _: "Etes-vous sûr de vouloir supprimer %d lignes?", 1: "Etes-vous sûr de vouloir supprimer 1 ligne?" } }, error: { system: "Une erreur s’est produite, contacter l’administrateur système" }, datetime: { previous: 'Précédent', next: 'Premier', months: [ 'Janvier', 'Février', 'Mars', 'Avril', 'Mai', 'Juin', 'Juillet', 'Août', 'Septembre', 'Octobre', 'Novembre', 'Décembre' ], weekdays: [ 'Dim', 'Lun', 'Mar', 'Mer', 'Jeu', 'Ven', 'Sam' ] } } } ); $('#example').DataTable( { dom: "Bfrtip", ajax: "../php/staff.php", columns: [ { data: null, render: function ( data, type, row ) { // Combine the first and last names into a single table field return data.first_name+' '+data.last_name; } }, { data: "position" }, { data: "office" }, { data: "extn" }, { data: "start_date" }, { data: "salary", render: $.fn.dataTable.render.number( '.', ',', 0, '$' ) } ], select: true, buttons: [ { extend: "create", editor: editor }, { extend: "edit", editor: editor }, { extend: "remove", editor: editor } ], language: { processing: "Traitement en cours...", search: "Rechercher :", lengthMenu: "Afficher _MENU_ éléments", info: "Affichage de l'élement _START_ à _END_ sur _TOTAL_ éléments", infoEmpty: "Affichage de l'élement 0 à 0 sur 0 éléments", infoFiltered: "(filtré de _MAX_ éléments au total)", infoPostFix: "", loadingRecords: "Chargement en cours...", zeroRecords: "Aucun élément à afficher", emptyTable: "Aucune donnée disponible dans le tableau", paginate: { first: "Premier", previous: "Précédent", next: "Suivant", last: "Dernier" }, aria: { sortAscending: ": activer pour trier la colonne par ordre croissant", sortDescending: ": activer pour trier la colonne par ordre décroissant" } } } ); } );

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.
