Topic: Table sort - Javascript Error

sintacs free asked 3 years ago

I used the example code from with the latest MDB-Free version on this url *removed* and I get this js-error when I click on a table-head to sort: Uncaught TypeError: Cannot create property 'length' on boolean 'true' at _fnSortListener (datatables.js:6176) at datatables.js:6225 at HTMLTableCellElement.<anonymous> (datatables.js:6596) at HTMLTableCellElement.dispatch (jquery-3.3.1.min.js:2) at HTMLTableCellElement.y.handle (jquery-3.3.1.min.js:2) I think I am missing something but I can't figure out what.

Hi, in the DataTable options there is a mistake. You specified "sorting"=true but you should use "ordering"=true as in the official documentation With the parameter "order" you can define which column(s) the order is performed upon, and the ordering direction (documentation)

Thank you, that fixed it. I think the tutorial should be changed reflecting this issue.
