DHX Quick Tables for Showing & Updating DB Data

Posted · Category: GPL License, Tables

DHTMLX library is getting closer to people who do not want or do not know how to write the code, but need to have something for showing/updating data they store in the database. Even programmers sometimes need this to minimize the time spent on routine tasks.

With the help of DHX Quick Tables, you get necessary number of web pages with tables linked to the database records. Two entries are available: for guests (just view the tables) and for administrator (view, edit, add/delete pages). Thus, you can put it on the backend of your database-driven site and be able to access and update data.

Or you can show resulting table on your website, if tabulated data is what you need. Visitors will be able to navigate through the huge amount of records, sort and filter the information. In the next build of the tool we’ll also add printing and other nice features. DHX Quick Tables is distributed under GNU GPL for free.

Fixed Position Table Header jQuery Plugin

Posted · Category: License Free, Tables

Wouldn’t it be great if there was an easy way to make massive HTML tables with scrollable content and headers that stayed put? Why would you want this? Say you have a table with many rows and columns. Typically what happens when you scroll to the bottom of the table is you’ve forgotten the context of the cell you’re viewing because the table header has scrolled out of view.

Chromaloop did come across a solution that achieves the desired effect by creating two tables and stacking them on top of each other, one for the thead and the other for the tbody. Regardless of the extra markup required, this approach seemed to work the most reliably across all browsers.

So Chromaloop worked out a way to do it that would rely on Jquery to do most of the heavy lifting for the extra HTML markup and generating the correct cell dimensions so that the thead would line up properly with the tbody with dynamic content. The rest would rely on some light CSS markup to define the table dimensions and positioning.

And then, he has taken this a step further by creating Chromatable jQuery Plugin to keep the code contained in one location and allow users to call the “chromatable()” method on any table, or many tables on the same page.

ExtJS Grid Accepts Data Dragged from Spreadsheet

Posted · Category: MIT License, Tables

If we could drag our tabular data into grids from other programs we could circumvent the need to upload a data file to a web server to be read and parsed, then spit back out to our browser in a readable format.

Anyone who has ever had to parse Excel files on the server side knows how much of a pain it is, we might be lucky if we get a CSV file or some other simple format, but in the real world the end user running their spreadsheet program has no clue what simple tabular data is.

Shea Frederick has created a DataDrop plugin that is used on an ExtJS grid, giving that grid the ability to accept data dragged from spreadsheet programs such as Excel and OpenOffice Calc right into the grid to create rows of data.
