How to select the corresponding page of row datatable

I want to preselect a row in my datatable and I am using the

function for that. It does select the row but it doesn't select the corresponding page where that row is.
I know there exists an option displayStart:

$('#example').dataTable( {
"displayStart": 20
} );

to start on a specific page, but it requires the number of the row in the source list not the id of that row.
Is there a way how to initialize the page using the rowID?

EDIT: The data is taken from the server, not in client.


Use row().show() API method to display page containing required row.

Please note that you need to include additional JS file // for this API method to work.


See this example for code and demonstration.
