How to embedd the grid into a html table?

if i embedd the grid into the table, the grid turns into a unespecified format.I would like to know the cause of this problem and how to solve this problem. IF some could give me a hand, i would be thankful.

I suggest that you put the grid inside a DIV that is then placed inside the grid. You will have much better control over it then.

Show me an example of what you did and I'll show you where you made the mistake, because you can put a grid in a table using a DIV.

OK, I think I can help. First, the DIV that you are going to place the grid in, give it an ID. Something like <DIV id=gridDiv>. Then, move the code for creating the grid to the bottom of the page, right before the </body>. I have found that you will have too many problems trying to put a <SCRIPT> inside a DIV, it just doesn't work most of the time. So, now that you have given the DIV an ID and moved the script for creating the DIV to the bottom of the page, change the last line of the script from document.write(obj) to document.getElementById("gridDiv").innerHTML = obj.

This should do the trick.

I have tried all of this, and cannot get the grid in the html table to work. Here is my code:

<html>
   <title>DABS - Exchange</title>
   <style>
      table {border-style:solid; border-color:#444488; border-width:1px; background-color: #CCDDFF;}
   </style>
   <link rel=stylesheet href=DABSstyle.css>
   <head>
   </head>

   <body bgcolor=#ffffff>
      <table width=60% align=left border=0 cellpadding=2 cellspacing=2 bgcolor=#CCDDFF>
         <tr>
            <td colspan=4 width=100% align='center'>
               <div id=mygrid>
               </div>
            </td>
         </tr>
      </table>

      <script language="javascript">
         // data source
         var myData = [
            ["text1", 123.45],
            ["text2", 678.90]
         ];

         // create grid object
         var obj = new Active.Controls.Grid;

         // set number of columns/rows
         obj.setColumnCount(2);
         obj.setRowCount(2);

         // link to cell text
         obj.setDataText(function(i,j){return myData[i][j]});

         // write control to the page
         //document.write(obj);
         document.getElementById("mygrid").innerHTML = obj;
      </script>

   </body>
</html>

You just need to reference grid files like:
<link href="../../runtime/styles/xp/grid.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" ></link>
<script src="../../runtime/lib/grid.js"></script>

and give some height to the table like:
<table width=60% height=50% align=left border=0 cellpadding=2 cellspacing=2 bgcolor=#CCDDFF>

Hi

I Want to put a Grid in a JSP. this Grid have to sort ASC or DESC, depend the column.

I have the rows in a ArrayList.
