Hi all

I happily stumbled across this posting today while wondering about ways to do inline editing of list builder elements. Nathan/Frank did you ever make any progress on inline editing?

cheers

Ya'll should check out Sencha and their product called Ext JS:

http://www.sencha.com/products/js/

It has a grid with pagination, sorting, in-line editing, drag-drop (say to another grid or from a tree), some searching plugins, complex event handlers, etc.

Its dual license, so you might be able to use it free, but a commercial license is pretty cheap for 1 developer.

We've used it extensively with openacs. One cool thing we do is let users pick which columns they want to see (on an admin page), then have the grid render with those columns in their specified order.

Hi Taras

thanks for the tip! Can you give me more detail on how you use it with OpenACS? Have you written mods to list builder or Form Builder to hook into it?

thanks
Brian
