I am building a jquery datatable with a search bar in each column and I am following the example that was given in datatables page https://datatables.net/examples/api/multi_filter.html
Given a certain search term (‘Tokyo’ for example), I am trying to programmatically search the office column from jquery.
How can I do that?
I was able to do it using
table.column(colID).search('Tokyo').draw(); however this solution does not show the search term in the search box. How can display the search term in the corresponding search box ?
Here is a fiddle https://jsfiddle.net/marouenbg/7cvz9kjy/2/
