>9.0.1 Edit Table Teaser


>I have just had a sneak preview of an Edit Table enhancement coming in version 9.0.1 that I want to share with you. Once again, as a result of customer feedback in the EMEA region, Revelation have listened and acted. The request was for better visibility of the selected cell in an edit table – ideally something similar to the way the cell turns yellow in OpenInsight’s Table Builder.

It goes without saying that such functionality can be created using code on an edit table by edit table basis or through a promoted event for consistency across the application. However, for version 9.0.1, Revelation will enable developers to set a few properties on a system environment window (to be defined at the present time) that will:

  1. Set the background colour of the user selected cell
  2. Set the style of the cell border (lined, dotted, etc.)
  3. Set the cell border width in pixels

Whilst this can be set to ripple throughout your application, it will also respect the style defined within the form for any one edit table. In Mike’s example, I saw a new edit table with selected cell with a yellow background and blue medium solid cell border. However, the old style was used for the Table Builder showing a yellow background, dotted small border and grey row.

This approach not only delivers on the request, but it also leaves developers in control to set colours and styles to suit their application and users.

  2. >Barry,These settings have been added into the environment settings so you can set them for your entire application without writing any code if you so wish.
