My table is a data table, and I'm contemplating using it as the data store as well, rather than keep a js array of data separately. The cell values are retrieved by ajax, then inserted into the table. I'm thinking that the duplication of data (once in the js array, once in the table) is likely to lead to strange results somewhere along the line, where the two data sets get out of synch. It seems to me that jquery makes using a table in this way rather simple (I refer to the jquery selectors in particular). The table includes some editable-in-place columns.
If any such edits, and user presses a Save button above the table, the save function finds the edited fields and sends an appropriate ajax call, then refreshes the table with the outcome (eg it worked, so new values remain shown, it didn't work, revert, or something like that, it's not too important here). Hence the need to maintain some 'awareness' of the values in the cells. I'm content with using attributes as needed to support this (e.g., to be able to revert to original value, to mark cells that have been edited). Table may contain up to 500 rows, ten columns. How it compares with keeping the data in a js array?
I am trying to use jQuery AJAX. What my requirement is, i wish to load user names from DB in dataset, convert it to JSON format and store it in memory or using jQuery data for use while a user is browsing my site, i.e for a session. This way I can use autocomplete or my own code to display data to user.
I wanted to define additional attribute to a tag to manage information. I realized that XHTML might not like it and discovered the data(name,value) function. I was wondering how I could retrieve all tags e.g. "div" that have that data variable set.
I have a project that I need to read some data from an XML file.
However, since JS is a client side script so it can't read from client side, is there any alternate way to do this? I am thinking to create a "Data" class, and many "Data" objects, is this an elegant way to do it?
Option 1 is technically valid, but seems excessive. Option 2 will work fine, but is considered by some as bad practice. Option 3 requires the extra step of splitting the ID from some identifier string, and care not to have the same record twice on the page.
I have a simple count-as-you click button form, and this is what I want to do with it:
Click the button (however many times) to get the sets of numerical data.Take those numbers into a cookie, and be able to add/subtract to each number as i use the form again; and update the cookie. I need a way to be able to do this multiple if not an infinite number of times!
Now lets assume that the text itself contains characters outside of the normal ISO-8859-1 character set (like asian or russian characters). Would the individual char values be stored as one byte or two bytes?
"hello" -> 5 * 1 bytes = 5 (normal 8859 character sets) "hello" -> 5 * 2 bytes = 10 (unicode or an extended character set size).
Is ISO-8859-1 still stored like ASCII once was as 8 bits? Or is it 16? If I was to use a 2 byte character set then would that cut the size of my allocated local storage space by half?
I have an object with a single Method to load content from a xml file. The problem is... how do I add a property to the object to store the data loaded?? I tryed adding a simple Array inside the object, but didn't work.
I'm trying to update a table based on the results of a database query returned via JSON. My goal is to show the progress of a queue, removing entries that have completed. Firstly I need to populate a table with the results of the JSON. I have:
I would like to create a table using static data. This is not a updatable data table, or anything fancy. I am must wanting to replace a table crated with <table> tags with some sort of DHTML div tags so that I can do more with the table.
I need a TreeView which is inside the first column of a table. In theseconds (and more) columns there should be data about every "row" of the treeview.It is important that the data for each item is aligned under each other.
I have a table of data brought in through lift and in it is a status column. I am wondering if there is an easy way to color a row based on the contents of that column. Any status of broken was red, edited was yellow and finalized was green. It seems like I could write a widget for doing this, but I don't know how it would work and have little experience with creating my own widgets.
I'm working with scala and lift as well so I'm bringing in the table data from a database when the page loads. Whether a widget is how to make the colors adjust, or creating more JS functions for doing it.
I am currently using this function to clone rows in my table when a user clicks 'add row'
The problem is, obviously, cloning the row also clones any of the data that the user may have already entered. I need to just clone the elements of the row, not the user entered data. Is there a way to remove all data from a row before it is cloned?
