    Tables and SubTables

    Mark Spritzler Apprentice

      Related to my other post, but I am trying to understand tables and subtables and some of the cool things I might do with that. I like the example you have in the LiveDemo, and I want something like that but with my data, and what I want to do, I don't see the best way to accomplish what I want.

      So I have a List to display in the table. But like this

      ________________________________
      |Name | Time | Status |
      ________________________________
      | a | 10PM | Success |
      | b | 11PM | Failure |
      | c | 12AM | Success |
      | d | 1AM | Failure |
      | e | 2AM | Success |
      ________________________________
      


      But the Failure is a link to expand a Toggle panel so it looks like this

      ________________________________
      |Name | Time | Status |
      ________________________________
      | a | 10PM | Success |
      | b | 11PM | Failure |
      |b failed because I just didn't|
      | like b and thought this would|
      | piss b off |
      | c | 12AM | Success |
      | d | 1AM | Failure |
      | e | 2AM | Success |
      ________________________________
      


      One of the problems I see is that the String for the message is in the same "record" as the row. Meaning there isn't a List of List for the main table, so the inner list can be used in a subtable.

      Is there a way to use the main List in both the main and subtable at the same time?

      Is there a sweet solution I am not seeing?

      Thanks

          I am no longer using SubTables to get this to sort of work. I get what I need, except the TogglePanel "row" which is part of a column group that spans my three columns, is always showing, I want it to not show anything in the row if it is not toggled open. Right now it takes 3-4 pixels in height when it is closed and looks very awkward.

          like

          ______________________
          value value value
          ______________________
          ______________________ <-------
          value value value
          ______________________

          That gap where the "<------" is is what I want gone.

          Thanks

            OK, now I got rid of the gap. Just had to figure out the correct css styles to put. :)

            Thanks
