    With the last version: 1.10.5, I have any troubles with tabletools, because my host send a message when I refresh:
    Resource interpreted as Font but transferred with MIME type text/html: ""... happens the same with ...regular.ttf, font-family glyphicons-halflings.
    I don't know if I must update any css or js file.

    jQuery dataTables + jQuery UI + MvcContribGrid + MVC.NET

    We use a combination of MvcContribGrid for .NET and jQuery dataTables. Where the recordset grows beyond what browsers can reliably handle, we resort to server side pagination (turn off dataTable paging and show paging controls developed to support database level paging) and this works great for our requirements.

    A partial-screenshot which shows dataTables embedded inside jQuery UI accordion control is shown here:

    We appreciate your efforts for inventing such a great tool to present tabular data in a reliable and beautiful way.

    I work mostly with database rich projects and DataTables is the most convenient plugin to use in web applications.
    There are a lot of tweaks with complex data manipulations and with the gradual updates there have been a lot useful functionalities that can be applied.

    Hello Allan,

    I'm using Datatables in a page to generate a sales department billing structure.

    It loads JSON data asynchronously, i.e. the datatable is first created on page load and waits for the JSON response to arrive and then the data gets filled in.

    Also, I'm adding select boxes in the footer when the initComplete method gets called, and then they are replaced by jQuery UI combobox. edit by Admin Removed question.

    I'm using datatables and editor in a mediawiki extension for creating, modifying, and updating wikitables. The wiki I run is for researchers who don't worry about wikicode or keeping tables neat and presentable.

    Datatables helps by supplying an easy to use interface and simple update methods that work well with mediawiki's php backend.

    Hi Allan,

    I'm using Datatables for my client's Logistics Order and Control Inventory system.

    Basically, admins and her own user clients login and place orders that use something similar to an ordering shopping cart to process orders which are then displayed in Datatables and upon checkout, the order is put together in a PDF and mailed out to various destination email addresses including the shipping and receiving department.

    The entire system is built on a secure login Boostrap site.

    I find Datatables extremely fast and efficient for displaying tables with thousands of rows of data dating back to 2009.

    I am building an accounting application for a charity. It is highly table-centric. DataTables has taken care of the table presentation and allowed me to focus on other areas of my application.

    In one of my create and update forms I allow the user to select from a large table. Rather than a very long Option dropdown, I present a table which presents a concatenated name and address column with hidden id and name columns. The user can easily search names and distinguish same names by the address. I love the way that the DataTables search filters by any text the user enters.

    The user clicks on the desired row and TableTools api helps to populates the name and hidden id input fields.

    I've used DataTables with Bootstrap to build several utility websites for the University of Arizona Graduate College, including our Program Descriptions website, and several directories.

    I know I've only scratched the surface of DT's functionality, but we've received a lot of great feedback about these sites, and much gratitude is due to DataTables for that.

    Admin note: Funny (as it doesn't actually work), but not entirely appropriate here. Going to leave as it made me laugh though.

    I am using DataTables in a sports statistics website - here is an example:

    We use the column-lock feature on mobile devices to lock the leftmost columns and also to make the other columns scrollable horizontally.

    We also use it to highlight the sorted column.
