- ADDITIONAL METHODS
Returns an asciibetical sorted list of the distinct values in the given column of the Device table. This is useful for web forms when you want to provide a drop-down list of possible options.
Returns a ResultSet for DataTables Server-side processing which populates the displayed table. Evaluates the supplied query parameters for filtering, paging, and ordering information. Note: query paramters are expected to be passed as a reference to an expanded hash of hashes.
Filtering if present, will generate simple LIKE matching conditions for each searchable column (searchability indicated by query parameters) after each column is casted to text. Conditions are combined as disjunction (OR). Note: this does not match the built-in DataTables filtering which does it word by word on any field.
Returns the total records, after filtering (i.e. the total number of records after filtering has been applied - not just the number of records being returned for this page of data) for a datatables ResultSet and query parameters. Note: query paramters are expected to be passed as a reference to an expanded hash of hashes.
