Datatables warning: request unknown parameter - marilena6 - 03-01-2017

Newbie to CI, needs help Smile
Here's my controller code:

Code:
<?php if ( ! defined('BASEPATH')) exit('No direct script access allowed');

class Documents extends CI_Controller {

    /**
     * Index Page for this controller.
     *
     * Maps to the following URL
     *         http://example.com/index.php/welcome
     *    - or -  
     *         http://example.com/index.php/welcome/index
     *    - or -
     * Since this controller is set as the default controller in
     * config/routes.php, it's displayed at http://example.com/
     *
     * So any other public methods not prefixed with an underscore will
     * map to /index.php/welcome/<method_name>
     * @see http://codeigniter.com/user_guide/general/urls.html

and here's the warning in the attatchment.

When I click the warning several times (as many as the results are) the results are shown apart from the first column. I even changed the default NULL values to None, but nothing happened. Can someone help?


RE: Datatables warning: request unknown parameter - parul - 01-21-2018

SAME ISSUE .

After page loading pop display with DataTables warning: table id=example - Requested unknown parameter '3' for row 50.

how to resolve this ?


RE: Datatables warning: request unknown parameter - InsiteFX - 01-22-2018

Did you read this and debug your code?

Warning: Requested unknown


RE: Datatables warning: request unknown parameter - XtreemDeveloper - 01-22-2018

When you define database use column number of table.

<script type="text/javascript">
$(function(){
var table = $('#sample_3');

// begin first table
table.dataTable({

// Internationalisation. For more info refer to http://datatables.net/manual/i18n
"language": {
"aria": {
"sortAscending": ": activate to sort column ascending",
"sortDescending": ": activate to sort column descending"
},
"emptyTable": "No data available in table",
"info": "Showing1 _START_ to _END_ of _TOTAL_ entries1",
"infoEmpty": "No entries found",
"infoFiltered": "(filtered1 from _MAX_ total entries)",
"lengthMenu": "Show _MENU_ entries",
"search": "Search:",
"zeroRecords": "No matching records found"
},

"bStateSave": true, // save datatable state(pagination, sort, etc) in cookie.

"columns": [{
"orderable": false
}, {
"orderable": true
},{
"orderable": true
},{
"orderable": true
},
"orderable": true
}, {
"orderable": false
}],
"lengthMenu": [
[5, 15, 20, 100, -1],
[5, 15, 20, 100, "All"] // change per page values here
],
// set the initial value
"pageLength": 5,
"pagingType": "bootstrap_full_number",
"language": {
"search": "Search Anything: ",
"lengthMenu": " _MENU_ records",
"paginate": {
"previous":"Prev",
"next": "Next",
"last": "Last",
"first": "First"
}
},
"columnDefs": [{ // set default column settings
'orderable': false,
'targets': [0]
}, {
"searchable": false,
"targets": [0]
}],
"order": [
[1, "desc"]
] // set first column as a default sort by asc
});
});
</script>


Your order-able column incorrect
"columns": [{
"orderable": false
}, {
"orderable": true
},{
"orderable": true
},{
"orderable": true
},
"orderable": true
}, {
"orderable": false
}],
