Release notes

1.6.2 is primarily a bug fix release for Buttons, but also sees a new feature in the export of Excel data - the data is saved in the spreadsheet as a "date" formatted cell if the date format is ISO8601.

For fixes, this release makes Buttons compatible with jQuery Slim and addresses a few other known issues.


  • New: Formatting dates to excel (ISO8601)


  • Updated: Add disabled attribute when buttons are disabled with the API


  • Fix: Support for jQuery slim which does not support fadeIn / fadeOut
  • Fix: use native DOMParser rather than $.parseXML in order to support jQuery slim
  • Fix: button().add() when given a null insert point would add button to the start rather than the end of the buttons array.
  • Fix: Column reordering with ColVis could change the dom structure of the buttons. This was particularly noticable with Bootstrap 3.
  • Fix: Button popover positioning when right align on button collection fixed so that it is aligned with the table.
  • Fix: Replace deprecated jQuery event shorthand
  • Fix: Setting pdfmake would cause an error
  • Fix: Error in calculation of right alignment overflow of the window, causing right aligned buttons to not work
