EditTablePlugin and SpreadsheetPlugin are working independently. Howerver the following combination is not working for me.

Cluster Owner Cumulative Status
A1 Owner1 A
A2 Owner2 B
A3 Owner3 C
TOTAL: 3   A: 1
B: 1
C: 1

If I click edit (table) and then save, then I get duplicate summary (last) row.

The twiki server is not in my control. So not providing the other info.

Regardless, the TWiki version is pretty important, in case there's a version-specific bug in play. It seems to work OK on this site.

What does it say on the WebHome topic of your TWiki web? E.g., TWiki.WebHome on this site says, "This site is running TWiki version TWiki-4.1.1, Mon, 05 Feb 2007, build 12770, Plugin API version 1.11"

Okay, I got what the issue on this TWiki (4.1.1?) as well. So you can debug it here itself. smile

There are two issues,

  • Issue1: If a table line contains a \ character for continuation of the table text to the new line then the edit table creates a duplicate row (without the "\\n")
  • Issue2: I have noticed that if there are multiple tables on a TWiki topic using the EditTablePlugin and SpreadsheetPlugin combination then the edit table on the table at the end of the page doesn't work.

To reproduce create two tables with the following code,

EditTablePlugin and SpreadsheetPlugin combination1

Cluster Owner Cumulative Status
A1 Owner1 A
A2 Owner2 B
A3 Owner3 B
TOTAL: 3   A: 1
B: 2

EditTablePlugin and SpreadsheetPlugin combination2

Cluster Owner Cumulative Status
A1 Owner1 A
A2 Owner2 B
A3 Owner3 B
TOTAL: 3   A: 1
B: 2

The second table in this code will behave badly.

I have reproduced this issue on AmitTendulkarRough if you face difficulty of reproducing it here (edit the tables from the top section and the last section on the page. The first table can be seamlessly edited and the last table seems to lose its properties.)

I just tried adding 'footerrows="1"' to your tables on the test page (which should be in the Sandbox, by the way) and the problem still persists. In fact, the new EditTablePlugin code is partially ignoring the footerrows parameter as it still adds the move and delete icons to each end of the footer row itself.

Have you reported this on the EditTablePluginDev page?

-- DuncanKinnear - 01 Sep 2008

I am sorry I am not yet accustomed to the TWiki culture :). I thought the sandbox gets cleaned up periodically. I wanted a permanent page to practice on. I haven't reported this to EditTablePluginDev. I will check there and drop a message there by EOD.

In which web exactly does the EditTablePluginDev topic exist?

-- AmitTendulkar - 02 Sep 2008

Hi Amit, try to post your issue at both - EditTablePluginDev and SpreadSheetPluginDev topics

Any footerrows parameter should be written to the TABLE variable, just above or below the EDITTABLE variable. The javascript interface ignoring this parameter can be marked as a bug.
