Datatables Serverside Selected Count Bug
In the Docs & Components example for Serverside AJAX Datatable, the footer selection counter is not working properly. No matter how many rows are selected, it always says "1 row selected".
In addition, clicking the whitearea in checkbox column but not the checkbox itself will toggle the "1 row selected" text even though the checkbox element is never interacted with.
Could you please provide us more info on how to reproduce this bug ? We were not able to reproduce this as you explained. Could you also please let us know your OS and Browser versions ?
Thanks for pointing this out. There's a slight misconfig in the Datatable initialization JS. We'll be pushing a fix for this on our next update.
In the meantime, if you require a fix for this urgently, you'll first need to open the JS file that initializes your table, in this example, it's located at
Then scroll to line 18 and you'll find this code snippet:
Replace that config with this:
selector: 'td:first-child input[type="checkbox"]',
And you're good to go.
