The data parameter has the following types:

  • data promise (object),

  • inline data:
    • array

If you want to parse data in addition to the existing dataset, specify position of parsing, namely the index from which you insert new data:

    // the number of records will be equal to the last index plus 1
    pos: $$("datatable").count(),
    data:dataset
});
