Next version - status update
Please don't forget that this is 'work in progress' and not even alpha yet.
All that does not mean that the focus shifts away from the grid control - the grid (or grids - standard, extended, tree grid etc.) is still central part of the product. But as we need all the small controls as cell editors anyway - why not to release them for form building :-)
Together with your favorite AJAX transport library this should make an interesting application platform...
Now I can see why it's taking you a while to develop this, and however cool it does look like, the grid is my main focus and interest at this time, so move your ass ;)
Show me a Mr. Gates autorization for doing so.
I am sure you panned those things "long time ago" with a unique intention, destroy our brains, anyway, so cool ..so pervese.
So it is not rocket science anymore.
Keyboard event hooking for instance. Make any hook handler return a bool to indicate whether the default handling for that event should additionally be processed or not.
This is very simple, and extremely useful, and the only way to handle things like keyboard events for special key processing without having to reimplement the default keyboard processing.
> release in September-October (see the link for more details):
and what about the documentation??? :))
Also, could you please clarify whether v1.0.1 license holders will be entitled to free upgrade to v2.0 standard or professional?
Will the renewed grid control be backwards-compatible with 1.0?
version 2.0 will have simple 'classic' paging.
Adrien de Croy:
yes, the event/action module is very much enhanced in 2.0
free upgrade from 1.0/1.0.1 is to 2.0 standard. New grid will not be backwards compatible, but two libraries will run side-by -side on one page if necessary.
I will try to do virtual paging (a la Rico) after 2.0, maybe 3.0 :-)
Menu/toolbar controls are in the plans, but this is also after 2.0
Alpha will be available to all commercial customers (send me email), beta - open.
Noticed you avoided the question on documentation :)))

at least we are hoping it will be easy to migrate the project to v2, given there will be adequate docu...(shutting up now).
I hope it will be easy to migrate, the API is mostly the same (but not backwards compatible in exact sense that you can replace the library and still run your code).
Btw, I already have a right click custom context menu running on my grids. Written some cool "History Navigation" to take you back to previous instances of the grid (I load using table.request)
Btw, Alex, go all out and include those features in v2. Come now man!
You sent us these links
Its looking amazing. Iam Impressed about that style. But I want to point a bug before relasing next version.
Drag the buttons.
Thanks for you works.
But you know Alex, you are late about AJAX.
I am not realy good in DHTML, but I manage PHP & SQL.. Therfore the grid is great for my apps (even so poorly slow - would the <table> be faster than <div> ???).
Anyway... it makes me go across great idea... Your stylish controls are simply great, but changing their look&feel is a bit problematical. Can we make together simple Database or file driven config file to setup colours or other (skinlike) things ??
very impressive for me & my application.
Just want to ask about compatibility with Firefox or Mozilla? I can't see the same think like IE 6.
Firefox 1.0.3 - 1.0.6 & Mozilla 1.7.8
That was what the thought of Database driven skin setup was..
Think of me as a programer.. no problem for me to make a CSS skin or o customize the one already existing (but even for me it is sometimes bit hard to navigate through all the .active...something)
And think of a secretary in your company, that is allways going to you asking for the grid to be blue to fit the blue app screen or be winXP-Like to let her feel as working with real win app...
She then would like to have some way to setup the header color, the grid color, the selected line color.. even some conditional formating...
Getting in now ?
Also this kind of structure with group can be also needed by many:
What you are asking for is a spreadsheet, this is a data grid. There are other companies that make web spreadsheets, I don't feel that this control needs to be a spreadsheet as well as being a great database grid. JMHO
Could you possibly post your codes with context menu.... i'm having a hard time figuring it out...
i hope you could help me.
I'm really happy with tis control.
Suggestion: Once we have more than 1000 records it takes too much time to reload table. In this case if something can be done that couple of pages with records will be loaded first then rest of pages will be loaded so user need not to look at white screen for long time.
Heck, some clear and concise documentaiton of -anything-.
