ajaxtableedit 1.0.0GNU General Publi...HTML, AJAX


This class can be used to edit data in the cells of an HTML table using AJAX to save the changed cell values without reloading the current page.

It takes an bi-dimensional array as parameter to define the contents of the cells of the table to be edited. Then it generates the table HTML with the necessary JavaScript code to edit the cell contents.

The user may edit the cells by clicking on them. The cell is turned into a text input so the user can alter the cell contents with the keyboard. If you are using AdvATE then you can specify the type of input you want returned: text, textarea, select, radio, and checkboxes. For the latter three, you are able to specify the inputs and values to be presented to the user.

When the cell editing is finished, the data is saved using AJAX to send to the server the new cell value and the respective table row and column number.

Many Web applications need to provide means to display and edit bi-dimensional data, like for instance data stored in database table records.

This class provides an AJAX based solution that allows the users to see and manipulate tabular data interactively.

The data is displayed in a HTML table with content cells that can be edited right there without the need to load another page.
