jquery datatables hide column without removing it from DOM


"sClass": "hide_column"

And define hide_column class in your css like this

    display : none;

that should make that column hidden…


Notes on build script

  • Choose a language that can be used in multiple platforms (very important for a Java project)
  • Ensure that as many steps are automated. Begin with a full clean up and allow full build and deployment to the server
  • Automate even server restart to increase developer efficiency
  • Each build should ensure that it recompiles all classes and optionally fetches latest code from the repository
  • Stale references to others code is the most frequent offense among developers. So use the build script to enforce some discipline too
  • While writing a build script, one needs to take care of small short cuts that can help in a faster build and deployment
  • Deploy only HTML and JSP
  • Deploy only compiled java classes
  • Do only a restart
  • Deploy only properties files
  • This is not a default option and one should not spend time at this in the beginning. This is a step more relevant to iterative improvement of the build script
  • How To Get The Current Epoch Time (Unix Timestamp)


    Perl time
    PHP time()
    Ruby Time.now (or Time.new). To display the epoch: Time.now.to_i
    Python import time first, then int(time.time())
    Java long epoch = System.currentTimeMillis()/1000;
    Microsoft .NET C# epoch = (DateTime.Now.ToUniversalTime().Ticks - 621355968000000000) / 10000000;
    VBScript/ASP DateDiff("s", "01/01/1970 00:00:00", Now())
    Erlang calendar:datetime_to_gregorian_seconds(calendar:now_to_universal_time( now()))-719528*24*3600.
    element(1, now()) * 10000 + element(2, now()).
    MySQL SELECT unix_timestamp(now())
    PostgreSQL SELECT extract(epoch FROM now());
    Oracle PL/SQL SELECT (SYSDATE - TO_DATE('01-01-1970 00:00:00', 'DD-MM-YYYY HH24:MI:SS')) *
    24 * 60 * 60 FROM DUAL
    SQL Server SELECT DATEDIFF(s, '1970-01-01 00:00:00', GETUTCDATE())
    JavaScript Math.round(new Date().getTime()/1000.0) getTime() returns time in milliseconds.
    Unix/Linux Shell date +%s
    PowerShell Get-Date -UFormat "%s" Produces: 1279152364.63599
    Actionscript (new Date()).time
    Other OS’s Command line: perl -e "print time" (If Perl is installed on your system)
    ColdFusion (CFML) MX 6.1+ #int( getTickCount() / 1000 )#
    Bash Command Line: date +%s
