AngularJS Question

Angular-DataTables custom filter

i am trying to add a custom filter to angular-DataTables with server side processing, which works perfectly with sorting and built in search of datatables.

I was following example Angular-DataTables, to build the server side processing and setup the DataTable, in searching around i have found some info but haven't been able to make it work.

What i am trying to get is to redraw the table with filtered data once the checkbox [Player] has been triggered.

Does anyone know a solution for this or has a working example for this?

have found this example Custom Table Filter, but it seems it doesn't work either.

HTML:

<div ng-app="showcase"><div ng-controller="ServerSideProcessingCtrl">
<label><input type="checkbox" id="customFilter" value="player"> Player</label>
<table datatable="" dt-options="dtOptions" dt-columns="dtColumns" class="row-border hover"></table>




JS part:

'use strict';

angular.module('showcase', ['datatables'])
//.controller('ServerSideProcessingCtrl', ServerSideProcessingCtrl);
.controller('ServerSideProcessingCtrl',["$scope", "DTOptionsBuilder", "DTColumnBuilder", function($scope, DTOptionsBuilder, DTColumnBuilder) {

//function ServerSideProcessingCtrl(DTOptionsBuilder, DTColumnBuilder) {
console.log($scope);
$scope.dtOptions = DTOptionsBuilder.newOptions()
.withOption('ajax', {
// Either you specify the AjaxDataProp here
// dataSrc: 'data',
url: 'getTableData.php',
type: 'POST'
})
// or here
.withDataProp('data')
.withOption('serverSide', true)
.withPaginationType('full_numbers');
$scope.dtColumns = [
DTColumnBuilder.newColumn('id').withTitle('ID'),
DTColumnBuilder.newColumn('name').withTitle('First name'),
DTColumnBuilder.newColumn('position').withTitle('Position'),
DTColumnBuilder.newColumn('type').withTitle('Type')
];

$scope.$on('event:dataTableLoaded', function(event, loadedDT) {
console.log(event);
console.log(loadedDT);
$('#customFilter').on('change', function() {
loadedDT.DataTable.draw();
} );


});

}]);


JSON on load:

{"draw":"1","recordsTotal":8,"recordsFiltered":8,"data":[{"id":"1","name":"Raul","position":"front","type":"player"},{"id":"2","name":"Crespo","position":"front","type":"player"},{"id":"3","name":"Nesta","position":"back","type":"player"},{"id":"4","name":"Costacurta","position":"back","type":"player"},{"id":"5","name":"Doc Brown","position":"staff","type":"medic"},{"id":"6","name":"Jose","position":"staff","type":"manager"},{"id":"7","name":"Ferguson","position":"staff","type":"manager"},{"id":"8","name":"Zinedine","position":"staff","type":"director"}]}

Answer

After searching and browsing, combined few examples and came up with this.

HTML :

 <label><input type="checkbox" id="customFilter" value="player" ng-click="reload()" > Player</label>

JS:

 'use strict';

    angular.module('showcase', ['datatables'])
            //.controller('ServerSideProcessingCtrl', ServerSideProcessingCtrl);
    .controller('ServerSideProcessingCtrl',["$scope", "DTOptionsBuilder", "DTColumnBuilder","DTInstances",  function ($scope, DTOptionsBuilder, DTColumnBuilder, DTInstances) {

    //function ServerSideProcessingCtrl(DTOptionsBuilder, DTColumnBuilder) {
        console.log($scope);

        $scope.dtOptions = DTOptionsBuilder.newOptions()
                .withOption('ajax', {
                    // Either you specify the AjaxDataProp here
                    // dataSrc: 'data',
                    url: 'getTableData.php',
                    type: 'POST',
                    // CUSTOM FILTERS
                    data: function (data) {
                        data.customFilter = $('#customFilter').is(':checked');
                    }
                })
            // or here
                .withDataProp('data')
                .withOption('serverSide', true)
                .withPaginationType('full_numbers');
        $scope.dtColumns = [
            DTColumnBuilder.newColumn('id').withTitle('ID'),
            DTColumnBuilder.newColumn('name').withTitle('First name'),
            DTColumnBuilder.newColumn('position').withTitle('Position'),
            DTColumnBuilder.newColumn('type').withTitle('Type')
        ];

        DTInstances.getLast().then(function (dtInstance) {
            $scope.dtInstance = dtInstance;
        });

        $scope.reload = function(event, loadedDT) {
            $scope.dtInstance.reloadData();
        };

    }]);

and on the backend just go through the $_POST and check for custom filter, hopefully this will help someone
