Hi,
I'm trying to get the items selected from the filtered rows

I've been reviewing this https://www.datatables.net/forums/discussion/comment/47085
with no luck..

The datatable buttons are set as follows

buttons: [
                    'selectAll',
                    'selectNone'
                ],
                select: true,
                select: {
                    style: 'multi',
                    selector: 'td:not(.no-clickable)'
                },

From a function I try to process the selected rows

 var myTable = $('#RequestsTable').DataTable();
       
        var data = "";
        var data = myTable.rows({ selected: true }).data();

I'm missing something here.....

I would add a class to a row when it's clicked or selected, and then look for those rows when you want to process the selected rows.  Here's an example:

https://jsfiddle.net/zephyr_hex/vLx2tup3/1/

HTML
<input id="button" type="button" value="Count of Rows">
<table>
  <thead>
    <tr>
      <th>Rendering engine</th>
      <th>Browser</th>
      <th>Platform(s)</th>
      <th>Engine version</th>
      <th>CSS grade</th>
    </tr>
  </thead>
  <tbody>
    <tr>
      <td>Trident</td>
      <td>Internet Explorer 4.0</td>
      <td>Win 95+</td>
      <td> 4</td>
      <td>X</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td>Trident</td>
      <td>Internet Explorer 5.0</td>
      <td>Win 95+</td>
      <td>5</td>
      <td>C</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td>Trident</td>
      <td>Internet Explorer 5.5</td>
      <td>Win 95+</td>
      <td>5.5</td>
      <td>A</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td>Trident</td>
      <td>Internet Explorer 6</td>
      <td>Win 98+</td>
      <td>6</td>
      <td>A</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td>Trident</td>
      <td>Internet Explorer 7</td>
      <td>Win XP SP2+</td>
      <td>7</td>
      <td>A</td>
    </tr>
  </tbody>
</table>

Open in new window


jQuery
var dt = $('table').DataTable();


$('table tbody').on('click', 'tr', function() {
  $(this).toggleClass('selected');
});

$('#button').click(function() {
  $.each(dt.rows('.selected').data(), function(key, value) {
    console.log(key);  //F12 console to see the result
    console.log(value);
  });
  alert(dt.rows('.selected').data().length + ' row(s) selected');
});
