Hide thead when no data

Hide thead when no data

As in the subject, I would like to only display the thead when there is data in the table. This works on first run, but fails on subsequent runs. Debug.datables.net was https://debug.datatables.net/ikoqes, but doesn't work for me. You can see some of the things I've tried in commented code. My code is:

    let table = $('#results-table').DataTable({
        ajax: {
            type: 'POST',
            beforeSend: function (xhr) {
                xhr.setRequestHeader("XSRF-TOKEN",
                    $('input:hidden[name="__RequestVerificationToken"]').val());
            },
            data: function (d) {
                return $.extend({}, d, {
                    cycleId: $('#cycle-select').val(),
                    grade: $('#grade-select').val(),
                    interventionGroupId: $('#intervention-group-select').val(),
                    planStatusId: $('#plan-status-select').val(),
                    subjectId: $('#subject-select').val(),
                    tier: $('#tier-select').val()
                })
            },
            dataSrc: '',
            error: (result => {
                if (result.status === 400) {
                    window.location.href = window.resolveUrl("~/Index");
                }
                $("#server-error").html(result.responseJSON);
                $('#results-table_processing').hide();
            })
        },
        columns: [

                    return data;
                }),
            },

    I'm not sure what all of these selectors are

    $('#table-info-row #results-table_info, #table-info-row .dt-buttons, #results-table thead').show();
    

    Do you have more than one table you are trying to hide? Looks like you are trying to hide more than just the thead. Maybe place your table in a div and hide that.

    There is nothing obvious that seems to be an issue. Please provide a link to your page or a test case replicating the issue so we can help debug.

    Thank you for your attention. The selectors are for the dom elements for table info and buttons (although buttons aren't used in this case, so that selector could be ignored).
    I'm on mobile right now, and will try to stand up a test case later today, but I'm not sure I'll be able to properly mock the ajax parameterized search.
    One other thought: could using a js 'arrow function' in the drawCallback be contributing to the problem? I've just started using them, and I know context is (ie this) is different.
