Rails Helpers for Vendors

Hello and thank you for this thoughtful template integration into rails 7. I've been through all files and rails help documentation but I do not understand how to use the rails helper in controller or view for datatables?

JS and CSS are loading correctly for datatables.

Examples from documentation:

helpers.addVendor('datatables')
Does this go in the controller?

addVendor(vendor)
Does this go at the bottom of the view template?

I am trying to use the following code in my view template

table id="kt_datatable_dom_positioning"

Hi,

In the Rails controller, you can call any helper functions from /app/helpers/* files using helpers object. Eg. helpers.addVendor('datatables')

The addVendor function is defined in /app/helpers/application_helper.rb

The vendors' entries will be printed in the /app/views/layout/master.html.erb. JS files at the bottom and CSS in the head.

getVendors('css')
getVendors('js')

Thanks

Thanks for the response. I was able to get it working after adding the DataTable script at the bottom of the master.html.erb

<script>
$("#kt_datatable_dom_positioning").DataTable({
"language": {
"lengthMenu": "Show _MENU_",
},
"dom":
"<'row'" +
"<'col-sm-6 d-flex align-items-center justify-content-start'l>" +
"<'col-sm-6 d-flex align-items-center justify-content-end'f>" +
">" +

"<'table-responsive'tr>" +

"<'row'" +
"<'col-sm-12 col-md-5 d-flex align-items-center justify-content-md-start'i>" +
"<'col-sm-12 col-md-7 d-flex align-items-center justify-content-md-end'p>" +
">"
})
</script>

Glad you solved it. Feel free to let us know if you have any issues.

Thanks
