Line: 18 to 18
 

Using TWiki Variables in the Format Parameter

Changed:
<
<
TWiki variables like %Y% in <initial value> (of text input field) and <label text> (of fixed label) will get expanded when a new row is added.
>
>
By default, variables in <initial value> (of text input field) and <label text> (of fixed label) get expanded when a new row is added. This can be used for example to add a timestamp to a label. You can escape characters with format tokens if you do not want that.
 
Changed:
<
<
This is useful to write variables like dates into the table.
For example:
%EDITTABLE{ format="| label, 0, %SERVERTIME{"$day $mon $year $hour:$min"}% |" }%
... will get expanded to 12 Nov 2019 19:31 when the new row is created.
>
>
Any TWiki variable inside a table cell will be preserved. For instance, %TOPIC% will not get expanded to the current topic name.
 
Changed:
<
<
To prevent variable expansion: escape the format variable with formatting tokens (particularly $percnt).
For example:
%EDITTABLE{ format="| text, 20, $percntY$percnt |" }%
... will create a new row with $percntY$percnt. In view mode this is temporarily translated to %Y% and subsequent rendered as DONE.

The format tokens are the same as with FormattedSearch:

  • This Plugin does not support TWiki table formatting like Multi-span cells (e.g. | ... ||) and cell justification (e.g. |  centered  |   right |)
  • There is a performance issue when editing a large table, say, with more then 50 rows

  • Variables like %ATTACHURL% get expanded unless they are in a label
 
  • You cannot put two %EDITTABLE{}% statements on the same line in the source
  • You can include %-vars now in select values, by quoting them with <nop>, as in %<nop>X% for %X%, say for instance:
    select,1,%<nop>X%,%<nop>Y%

03 Aug 2008: 4.8.4 TWiki 4.2.1 release version
19 Jul 2008: 4.8.3 Bugfix release
20 Mar 2008: 4.8: Arthur Clemens: Code refactoring; disabled table sort when editing; removed usage of $percnt to prevent variable expansion (is now done automatically); made Javascript interface aware of headers and footers, and of changerows="off"; improved feedback on row move.
 
25 Dec 2007: 4.7.1: Arthur Clemens: Added warning if include parameter topic does not exist.
22 Dec 2007: 4.7: Arthur Clemens: Changed handling of escaped variables. To escape TWiki variable, use formatting tokens such as $percnt.
16 Dec 2007: 4.6: Kenneth Lavrsen: The plugin prevents TablePlugin from initsorting the table being edited. This is done by temporarily appending the attribute disableallsort="on" to the TABLE tag of a table being edited. Additionally all header sorting is disabled while editing a table by setting a hidden formfield sort to "off". Disabling sorting while editing is needed now that the EditTablePlugin supports moving rows up and down.
