Release notes

Buttons has proven to be a popular library since its release last week, which has also given a chance to highlight a number of issues with that initialise release. This is a bug fix release for Buttons and is a recommended upgrade.


  • New - HTML5 export: pdfHtml5 button now has a download option which can be set to be open to cause the file to display in the browser.
  • New - example: Add column control example for export data control


  • Fix: If footer element isn't present, don't attempt to use it
  • Fix: Extend Button's default prototype rather than overwriting with a plain object
  • Fix - Print: Print button didn't work in IE
  • Fix - Column visibility: Use the column title held by DataTables internal cache rather than from the HTML. This is due to the column title not being set in HTML until after the Buttons have been initialised and thus not seeing columns.title.
  • Fix: Columns visibility was not compatible with ColReorder. Buttons would not update for the new order and the visibility state could be shown incorrectly.
  • Fix: HTML5 copy to clipboard didn't work reliably in Chrome
  • Fix - example: Missing PDFMake reference for file name example
  • Fix: If export data was not string based, an error would be thrown
  • Fix: Footer check, was checking for the header
