Hi guys. Sorry for being a noob. I couldn't find the required JS file on this page http://datatables.net/plug-ins/ for plug-ins. Are they available to download on the site? On the sorting link, there is a JS file called "dataTables.numericComma.js". Anyone knows where to find it? Thanks.

    The sorting and API plug-ins aren't available as files for downloaded, you simply copy and paste the code from the page into your own JS file.

    In the case of the numeric comma sorting plug-in the code is here: http://datatables.net/plug-ins/sorting#numeric_comma . Just copy the code from the page and paste it into a new file. You can then call it whatever you want - dataTables.numericComma.js if you fancy it, or anything else!

    do you have sample to use the script? I included in my page but nothing happened!

    jQuery.extend( jQuery.fn.dataTableExt.oSort, {
    "numeric-comma-pre": function ( a ) {
    var x = (a == "-") ? 0 : a.replace( /,/, "." );
    return parseFloat( x );
    },

    "numeric-comma-asc": function ( a, b ) {
    return ((a < b) ? -1 : ((a > b) ? 1 : 0));
    },

    "numeric-comma-desc": function ( a, b ) {
    return ((a < b) ? 1 : ((a > b) ? -1 : 0));
    }
    } );

    You need to also set the sType for the column so that DataTables knows to use the plug-in (or use a suitable automatic type detection plug-in).

    Examples:

    It would be very helpful to add to the directions on the plug-in api page that the source should be copy and pasted from the details below. I too wasted time searching the site and the downloaded source for the plug-in functions.
