Chris van de Steeg has upgraded his fork of LiveGrid so that it has xslt support and improved scrolling.
Full Feature List
- We can still produce any HTML, in stead of fixed table-rows
- We now have XSLT support!!! I’m really happy with this one. It allows to have
any xml source as dataset for the grid. Just before it gets placed into the grid for viewing, you can do some xslt magic on it. Just have a look at the source of the yahoo demo to see how it works. This demo will take the literal html of the yahoo-api and gets parsed by our own xslt.
- Auto-size. the livegrid can automatically do calculations and resizing if the grid is empty on forehand. This way your HTML page doesnâ€™t need to know the exact row-size that will be returned by the
- Instead of keeping a set of rows in the buffer, we keep the xml-source in the buffer, and any newly loaded source is merged with the first one. For merging that is not-standard, you can specify an xpath to select the rows that should be buffered & used for display.
- And ofcourse, last but not least, the reason why I started the fork in the first place: the scrollwheel support!
