Hello, I have a bit of an interesting question:

For my application I need to implement a very stripped down version of the table editor. Just the ability to do the following:

  • Set columns and rows.
  • Optionally denote the top row as a "header".
  • Optionally denote the bottom row as a "footer".

Would it be possible for someone to point me in the right direction on where to start doing this or a successful strategy for getting it done?

One option that occurred to me was to create my own dialog and custom button that gives this functionality and then injects the table structure into the content area - but would this allow the user to modify the table? Would I have to add javascript events into the content area to enable things like handles for dragging column widths or adding new rows?

Really, I guess I am just polling for some potential strategies to sift through before I get started on what could potentially be quite a bit of work.

Thanks in advance

John

Hi John,

We are currently working on a lite version of the Table Wizard dialog of RadEditor, which will allow to set the desired table columns and rows numbers. This new dialog will be introduced in the next major release Q2 2010 due in July.

I think that it will be faster to implement your own custom dialog instead of customizing the very complex TableWizard control which contains 4 tabs and multiple controls inside it. Nevertheless, if you decide to customize the TableWizard dialog you can see how to register the external dialogs files of RadEditor in this live demo: Customize Built-in Dialogs.
