Client Side Loading after HTML table

Client Side Loading after HTML table

iainiowiainiow Posts: 1Questions: 1Answers: 0

I have a Datatable that is on a Razor View Component, it is loaded in to a main razor view. The rows on the table are clickable and reload the page to display details of the row that has been clicked. I am using state save to ensure that the page state is persisted across the page load. All works fine.

What isn't working fine is that the page length seems to take a second or so to apply. So say I have 20 rows with a page length of 10, I will see the full 20 rows briefly and then the page will be cut down to the correct length. Ideally I would either see the right length initially, or a loading spinner until datatables is finished.

The data is a client side with no ajax. Is there anything I can do to improve this situation?

    You can hide the HTML table or container the table is in until Datatables initializes. Then in initComplete display the hidden element. Or you can display a processing element before initializing Datatables then turn it of in `-option initComplete.
