Searchable Grid

Hi,
I have put togather a code which searches the grid for a keyword in a particular column. But need a lot of improvement.
Note: Please make necessary changes in the includes of css and .js to make it work

Hi Alex,
I am also working on the paging of data. Hope I will be able to post that code soon as well.

This example takes Nilesh's code a little further and sorts the table so that the items found in the search go to the top of the table. To do this, as well as changing the colors of the matching rows, it adds "<!--A--> to the cells that matched and "<!--x--> to those that did not. This allows it to sort but does not change the visable contents (because they are HTML comments). Sorry it is crude but I am a 'C' programmer and only just learning JavaScript.

That is a great idea Steve, well done

I have found that pressing the Enter key after entering data in the search box causes the page to reload immediately after the search has been performed causing the search results to be lost.

I have tried a umber of remedies for this but without success.

<input type=text name=keyword onchange="javascript:searchGrid();">

seemed like a good idea but did not change the behavior.

Any ideas?

Guess that input is inside some form, if yes then adding onsubmit="return false" will make you happy :-) do similar work-around if no form.

Thank you. That causes it to take no action when the Enter key is pressed which effectively makes the user use the proper button!

I have made a couple of other refinements to the code. If you make a second search right after the first one, you must remove the HTML comments that were poked into the data before adding new ones. I also found that the library does not sort a table if it was already sorted this way. A work around is add obj.sort(colToBeSearched, "decending"); before the line obj.sort(colToBeSearched, "ascending"); above.

I'll post the finished example if anyone wants it.

In Steve's example, the two loops end up adding stacks of <--x--><--x--><--A--> strings in the underlying values for the selected column.

The following modified loop removes these strings after the table has been sorted, during the process of colouring rows. This helps when retrieving values to carry forward.

for(var x=0; x<myData.length; x++) {
  var str = myData[x][colToBeSearched];
  if((str.indexOf("<!--A-->")) >= 0) { 
    obj.getTemplate("row", x).setStyle("color", "white"); 
    obj.getTemplate("row", x).setStyle("background", "blue"); 
    myData[x][colToBeSearched] = str.substr(8,20); 
    res++; 
  } else {
    obj.getTemplate("row", x).setStyle("color", "black"); 
    obj.getTemplate("row", x).setStyle("background", "white");
    myData[x][colToBeSearched] = str.substr(8,20); 
  } 
}

Hmmm...

I have some wierd behaviour using this method that I can't figure out.

This behaviour occurs when I am using the Steve Beavers codebase, with or without the modified function I last posted.

The problem is that sometimes fields do not move to the top of the table. Try it with the following code/data and do a search for the string "02-26" on Date. Try it as the first search, or another search later, its entirely reproducable, and having reviewed the code, I dont think it is Steve's Algorithm - it may be something deeper in the AW code. (but then, its late, I'm tired.....)

Anyway, try it out and let me know what you think. I've added a function resetGrid(), which solves a bunch of other issues, but apart from that there's no real code modifications.

function resetGrid() {
    obj.sort(0, "ascending"); 
    obj.refresh();
    obj.setSelectionProperty("values", []);
    for(var x=0; x<myData.length; x++) {
        obj.getTemplate("row", x).setStyle("color", "white"); 
        obj.getTemplate("row", x).setStyle("background", "blue"); 
    }	  
}


Note: There's still a bunch of formatting stuff in this code, but I dont have the time to strip it down further, and make sure it will work it you cut&paste, so please accept my apologies for the lengthy post.

Here's the code:

February 27,
The 1st example works great for me. However, I do not want to manualy load all the values of the table.

I am looking to replace this part of the code:
****************************************
var myData = [
["2005-02-25 04:31:04","WT-00-01","Willmotts","FR0001","10000.00","10000.00"],
["2005-02-25 04:31:34","WT-00-02","Parkinson Farms","FR0002","10000.00","9800.00"],
["2005-02-25 04:31:50","WT-00-03","Dibble & Scrubbit","FR0003","3000.00","3500.00"],
["2005-02-25 04:32:30","WT-00-04","Shovel and Diggitt","FR0004","4000.00","3000.00"],
["2005-02-25 04:32:57","WT-00-05","Not Set","FR0001","10000.00","10000.00"],
["2005-02-25 04:34:25","WT-00-06","Not Set","FR0002","6200.00","6000.00"],
["2005-02-26 09:15:54","WT-00-07","Not Set","FR0003","3000.00","2000.00"],
["2005-02-26 09:16:13","WT-00-08","Not Set","FR0001","3000.00","2000.00"],
["2005-02-27 03:30:01","WT-00-09","Not Set","FR0003","9000.00","2000.00"],
["2005-02-27 03:30:29","WT-88-78","Not Set","FR0001","789.00","567.00"],
["2005-02-27 03:30:48","WT-00-10","Stepsons","FR0005","10000.00","9000.00"],
["2005-02-27 03:31:12","WT-00-11","Stepsons","FR0005","5678.00","4564.00"],

["2005-02-27 03:32:27","WT-00-14","Stepsons","FR0005","4568.00","3465.67"]];
*****************************************


With something like this:
*****************************************
// provide data URL - plain text comma-separated file
table.setURL("../data/companies.csv");
*****************************************

So that all the table values are in a file, and dont have to be manually put on the page. Can someone PLEASE help!!!

ian,

did you ever figure out how to use the above examples of the searchable grid to work using data from a csv file as you requested?

i DESPERATELY need a searchable grid, that is populated using a csv file, ideally returning the results.

please!

someone?

thanks!

I almost got it to work (the search on data coming from CSV). Getting the data to show, but the search isn't quite working.

will post actual useful info if I get it to work.

If you could post the code for that, you would be a lifesaver!

THANKS!!

I cheated because I gave up on making the searchable grid work. Here is an asp file that I created that takes a "case sensitive" keyword, searches for that keyword in the csv file, for each line with that keyword, it writes that line to a new temp csv file, then uses the temp csv file to display a grid.

<%
'---- format Values ----
Const ForAppending = 8
Const ForReading = 1
Const ForWriting = 2

'---- format Values ----
Const TristateFalse = 0
Const TristateMixed = -2
Const TristateTrue = -1
Const TristateUseDefault = -2


Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
if (fso.FileExists("D:\web\access\site4\maps\Search.csv")) THEN
fso.DeleteFile("D:\web\access\site4\maps\Search.csv")
End If
Set f = fso.CreateTextFile("D:\web\access\site4\maps\Search.csv", True)
Set CSVFile = fso.GetFile("D:\web\site4\maps\data\maps.csv")
Set ts = CSVFile.OpenAsTextStream(ForReading, TristateUseDefault)

Do While ts.AtEndOfStream <> True
linestr = ts.readline
strSearch = request("strSearch")

if instr(linestr, strSearch) then
f.writeline linestr
end if
Loop
f.close
ts.close

Set FSO = Nothing
Response.Redirect "ViewSearchResults.htm"
%>

Im doing an app with XML data files involving filters and search fields. I use ASP and XSL to tranform my XML file on the fly and send it to the grid (filtered)...
