When rows are added using row.add reorder works. For example add items TOYRED, TOYBLUE and CRATEWIRE. You can drag the rows and they reorder. I have a debug alert that shows what happened.

When runing datatables on an HTML table that is pre populated, reordering doesn't work. To see this log in (Allan - I set up a used for you using your e-mail address, password is password), and go here: https://c9pets.erpecommerce.com/express/purchasehistory/
This creates a populated table in HTML before running datatables. Note that positions, etc do not work when reordering. Using inspect in Chrome, when dragging the row you can see the <tr> elements move.

Confused.

    The default data source for row reorder (rowReorder.dataSrc) is 0 (i.e. array index 0). That works in your first table since that column does contain the index order. However, in the second example it isn't (I think its column index 3 that contains the index - but not 100% certain). So you need to tell RowReorder which column contains the index.

    Interestingly, when I set the dataSrc to column 3, that stopped the first example from working for some reason, but it got me going in the right direction.

    I found that populating the sequence <tr> when generating the table fixed the issue, based on the rowReorder examples.

    Thanks.
