jQuery Question

Bootstrap tooltips don't work in page different from the first of datatables

I'm developing several datatables where the cells of some columns have bootstrap tooltips.
So i'm using:



The Datatables is organized in several pages.
When the document is ready and the table is loaded, in the first page of the datatables the tooltips are working fine, but the cells of the nexts pages have no tooltips!

How can I solve this problem?

Answer

SOLUTION

You need to use drawCallback to initialize tooltips every time DataTables redraws the table. This is needed because TR and TD elements for pages other than first are not present in DOM at the time first page is displayed.

DEMO

$(document).ready(function() {  
    var table = $('#example').DataTable( {     
        ajax: 'https://api.myjson.com/bins/qgcu',
        drawCallback: function(settings){
            var api = this.api();
            
            /* Add some tooltips for demonstration purposes */
            $('td', api.table().container()).each(function () {
               $(this).attr('title', $(this).text());
            });

            /* Apply the tooltips */
            $('td', api.table().container()).tooltip({
               container: 'body'
            });          
        }  
    }); 
});
