JavaScript Wait datatable to finish


New Coder
hello, in javascript i need wait to table load all data content, my approach is whit "initComplete" but table is not loading.
here is my example code:


    var myArray = [~alldata~]

    initComplete: buildTable(myArray)

    function buildTable(data){
        var table = document.getElementById('table')

        for (var i = 0; i < data.length; i++){
            var row = `<tr>
            table.innerHTML += row



anyone have a sugestion?

Hey there,
You could use the Array.prototype.map() method to map the data array to a new array with the table rows, before placing it in the table:
function buildTable(data) {
  const table = document.getElementById("table");
  const tableRows = data.map((dataItem) => {
  table.innerHTML = tableRows.join();

initComplete: buildTable(myArray)
Where did you get this from? Is this actually a thing in JavaScript? I've never seen anything like this being used in JavaScript, other than in an object, but this clearly is not an object.
initComplete seems to be a jQuery thingy. I am not familiar with jQuery, but have you made sure your buildTable() function is actually executed ? Put a console.log() statement in there, or step through it in the debugger, to be 100% sure.

Personally I would not append to table.innerHTML for every row. Append to a string, then after the loop is completed, assign that string to table.innerHTML

What exactly did you mean with "table is not loading" ?
