How to disable DataTables paging after initialization?

I have a DataTable with pagination enabled and I need to disable this setting and show all the results without pager by pressing a button.

I'm trying to access the already defined settings, change the paging to false, and redraw the table, but it doesn't work. I searched and tried similar forum threads without success.

Any idea how can I achieve that?

Here's a demo with my not-working code

HTML:

<div id="main_wrapper">
    <button class="form_button destroy_pager" type="button" onclick="" title="Destroy pager">Destroy pager</button>

    <table id="example" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
        <thead>
            <tr>
                <th>Column 1</th>
                <th>Column 2</th>
                <th>Column 3</th>
                <th>Column 4</th>
            </tr>
        </thead>
        <tbody>
            <tr>
                <td>Data 1</td>
                <td>Data 2</td>
                <td>Data 3</td>
                <td>Data 4</td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td>Data 1</td>
                <td>Data 2</td>
                <td>Data 3</td>
                <td>Data 4</td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td>Data 1</td>
                <td>Data 2</td>
                <td>Data 3</td>
                <td>Data 4</td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td>Data 1</td>
                <td>Data 2</td>
                <td>Data 3</td>
                <td>Data 4</td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td>Data 1</td>
                <td>Data 2</td>
                <td>Data 3</td>
                <td>Data 4</td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td>Data 1</td>
                <td>Data 2</td>
                <td>Data 3</td>
                <td>Data 4</td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td>Data 1</td>
                <td>Data 2</td>
                <td>Data 3</td>
                <td>Data 4</td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td>Data 1</td>
                <td>Data 2</td>
                <td>Data 3</td>
                <td>Data 4</td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td>Data 1</td>
                <td>Data 2</td>
                <td>Data 3</td>
                <td>Data 4</td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td>Data 1</td>
                <td>Data 2</td>
                <td>Data 3</td>
                <td>Data 4</td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td>Data 1</td>
                <td>Data 2</td>
                <td>Data 3</td>
                <td>Data 4</td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td>Data 1</td>
                <td>Data 2</td>
                <td>Data 3</td>
                <td>Data 4</td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td>Data 1</td>
                <td>Data 2</td>
                <td>Data 3</td>
                <td>Data 4</td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td>Data 1</td>
                <td>Data 2</td>
                <td>Data 3</td>
                <td>Data 4</td>
            </tr>
        </tbody>
    </table>
</div>

jQuery:

$(document).ready(function() {

    var oTable = $('#example').DataTable({
        'bPaginate': true,
        'iDisplayLength': 5
    });

    $('button.destroy_pager').on('click', function() {        
        var oSettings = oTable.settings;
        oSettings.bPaginate  = false;
        oTable.draw();
    });


});

EDIT: I need to have the pager enabled when I initialise the DataTable. The problem is that I have to disable it after the button press.

Thanks in advance

You should destroy and reinitilize the datatable with bPaginate option set to false on button click

 $(document).ready(function() {
    var table =  $('#example');
    var tableOptions = {
        'bPaginate': true,
        'iDisplayLength': 5
    };
   table.DataTable(tableOptions);
   $('button.destroy_pager').on('click', function() {        
        table.DataTable().destroy()
        tableOptions.bPaginate = false;
        table.DataTable(tableOptions);
    });
});

Use sDom option. Try sDom: 'ft' option. It's work for me. Take a look here: http://datatables.net/usage/options#sDom

Answer
$('#example').DataTable({
    'bPaginate': false       
});

use the above code.
