View Full Version : Grid widget

10-20-2003, 11:26 PM

here is the client-side grid widget script, which I hope might be useful for somebody:


Should work on IE5.5+ and recent Mozilla clones.
Download size ~30K
Open source (GPL license)
Not released yet, no API documentation (will be soon)

Basically the question is - does it make sense at all? What's your current experience with client-side widgets - too slow, too heavy or there is still a place for things like that?

many thanx

very nice, needed something like that myself a while ago. Build it myself, not so nice as yours, but with a sorting routine connected to the click on a columnheader.

But yours is much easier to style than mine.

nice work

Nothing doing in Firebird 0.6.1 (Mozilla 1.5a)

Mozilla's XUL supports an <xul:grid/> element and associated support elements...

In K-Meleon 0.7 it initially keeps trying to do a repositioning effect of some kind. *shrug* But it stabilizes later.

The first reaction - 'XUL doesn't work in IE, so forget it..." However now when I see how to make XUL elements appear inside normal HTML - I need to rethink everything again :confused:

Gecko on Linux - lots of small strange things when you use early versions, even though the same version works fine on Windows.
