getScript conditional loading

I have several Datatables instances on one page (different tabs), and I only want to load the active tab to reduce server load.

When using getScript to load my scripts conditionally, the data is not being populated (getScript is being called though).

Do the tables need to be reinitialized?

    As in jQuery's getScript? How is it being used? If you want the data for the active tab only, you'd need to use the tab's `show` event (assuming the tab control that you are using has one) and initialise the DataTable / load the data at that point.

    It's working now. Problem was with variable scoping in my jQuery / JS.
