Release notes

This release of buttons addresses a couple of visible issues that were present in the 1.5.1 release and also focuses on ensuring that the examples for Buttons are up to spec.


  • Fix: Regression - processing icon would not hide from PDF button
  • Fix: createEmptyCells would show true in an empty cell
  • Fix: Print export only selected rows example was always exported all rows due to the new behaviour of the export options interfacing with the Select extension
  • Fix: Legacy message option for PDF wasn't being used if defined.


  • Fix: Typo in styling section description
  • Fix: API enable / disable needs to listen for deselect to update the button states correctly
  • Fix: Improved description for API enable / disable example
  • Fix: Improve description for print column visibility example
  • Fix: Complete description for the PDF open example
  • Fix: Update pdf message examples to use the new messageTop option
  • Fix: Fix typo in Excel border example
  • Fix: Correct use of language.buttons.copyKeys for HTML5 copy to clipboard (was missing an s)
  • Fix: Correct description text for column grouping colvisGroup examples
  • Fix: alt + 2 can change tab in Chrome, so not a good example of a key combination to use. Switching to use shift+2 for the example.
  • Fix: Due to the recent change from a tags to buttons, the class name example didn't show the correct styling (was selecting by a tag).
