I am trying to hide a column in my Datatables. but it is not working.    

I was trying to use this function - "table.fnSetColumnVis( 12, false);"


$(document).ready(function() 
{

$('table[summary="2CIA4_Rules "]').attr('id','ruletable');
$('#ruletable thead').remove();
$('table[summary="2CIA4_Rules "]').find('tr').each(function(){
         var trow = $(this);
         trow.prepend('<td class="rowbutton"><button class="ui-button">User List</button></td>');
     });
$('#ruletable').prepend('<thead><tr class="ruleheader"><td>List</td><td>Rule</td><td>Owner</td><td>Audience</td><td>Curriculum</td><td>Target Area</td><td>Leader</td><td>Leader_WWID</td><td>MRC</td><td>Legal</td><td>JobFunction</td><td>SubFunction</td><td>Exclusions</td><td>Year 4 Notes</td><td>Comments</td><td>ChangeNotes</td></tr></thead');

var mSortingString = [];
var disableSortingColumn = 0; 
mSortingString.push({ "bSortable": false, "aTargets": [disableSortingColumn] });    

var table = $( ".ms-listviewtable" ).DataTable( {
		dom: 'Tf<"clear">rtip',
		"paging": false,
		"sScrollY": "400px",
		"sScrollX": true,
		"aoColumnDefs": mSortingString
    });   

table.fnSetColumnVis( 12, false);

});

Since DataTables 1.10, you can use columns().visible()
Here is the syntax:

table.columns(12).visible(false);

Open in new window


If you want to hide multiple columns:

table.columns([11,12]).visible(false);

Open in new window


Here is a Fiddle Demo
