Feature Proposal: Use DHTML to enhance functionality of EditTablePlugin


Manipulating tables, especially large ones, is sometimes cumbersome but could be made much easier and faster on clients that support Javascript.

Description and Documentation

Moving and deleting rows for example need not require trips to the server, or editing raw twiki code. A little DHTML could add buttons for doing this quickly and graphically, entirely within the client.

I've developed a patch for this already and have checked it into the MAIN/twikiplugins branch in SVN.

Handy feature. The move button does not work (on Safari).

Thanks... guess I'll have to get access to a Macintosh!

Sorry, I misunderstood the interface. I am taking the liberty to refactor the plugin a bit (as well as bug fixing). After that it would be nice if we could improve the interface by selecting in-between rows (like Photoshop does for instance) instead of clicking on another arrow button.

Confirmed: I borrowed a friend's Mac and the plugin seemed to work as expected on Safari. Now I'm eager to investigate some of the mods you've added...

I've been looking into trying to let the button "Add row" use javascript as well. Perhaps the plugin could add a dummy boilerplate row (invisible) to be used to duplicate by javascript?
