Does anyone know how to do a spinner in DataTable cell.

If i have a regular table, here's the code I would use, but how would I do this using DataTables since it's difficult to get an id of a td?

So here's code to basically select a an html link within a cell of table and then an ajax image spins and then, the cell turns yellow.  How can this be done using bootstrap dataTables?

$(function() {
    $("#html_link").bind("click", function(ev){
        $("#td_id").html("<img src=‘${loadingImage}‘ />");
        $.get("some_url", function(response) {
            $("#td_id").html(response).show("hightlight {color : "yellow", duration: 2000});
    });
    return false;
});

instead $("#td_id") you can use something like :
$("#mydatatable_id_or_any_container tbody tr:eq(3) td:eq(4)")

we use fourth row and the fifth column
you will need to do some test to get the right one of course
