Edit Table Plugin

This plugin allows you to edit TWiki tables using edit fields and drop down boxes. Tables have an [ Edit table ] button if preceeded by an %EDITTABLE{...}% variable. Each column can be a text field, a drop down box, a date field, etc. Multiple tables per topic are editable, but only one at a time can be edited.

(demo only, these buttons do not work)

The following example shows a simple table with key/value rows. The default edit field type for the value column is a text field. This is overloaded by a selector for the Gender, and a date picker for the DOB. This is typically used by TWiki applications where new topics with tables are created based on a template topic.

Limitations and Known Issues

Deleted:
<
<
  • ALERT! Bug: The Plugin fails if the table is at the very end of the topic (without a new line) Always ensure there is a newline after the table

  • This Plugin does not support TWiki table formatting like Multi-span cells (e.g. | ... ||) and cell justification (e.g. |  centered  |   right |)
  • There is a performance issue when editing a large table, say, with more then 50 rows
  • Variables like %ATTACHURL% get expanded unless they are in a label
