The wizard provides an easy to use interface to shape the table (layout) just like you want. When you're happy with the table you can insert it into the editor. It was also planned to offer the controls that you find within the wizard's dialog, in the editor itself so that you can modify the table, but this might not be manageable.
(With the wizard it is impossible to create invalid tables; whereas with FCKeditor for example adding a cell can make the table invalid, this is impossible with the wizard!)
Any comments are welcome! What do you think about the plugin? Do you find it more usefull than the default functionality provided by the FCKeditor?
Any help is appreciated
If anyone can hint on a solutions for the problems that show when using the tableWizardLive (i.e. using the controls inside the editor itself). The problems are :
- In IE the controls flicker when moving the mouse; the events needs to be optimized.
- When toggling between source or undo/redoing the controls disappear and clicking the tableWizardLive controls again does not work. any hints on how to hook onto the source, undo and redo buttons or how to disable all buttons when the tableWizardLive controls are active?
- Tables within tables do not show controls when hovering its cells; only the top parent table will have controls. Should I try to have controls on the child tables or let the tableWizard dialog check where the cursor is and alert and prevent from opening when it's in a table? (thus making it impossible to insert a table into another table with the tablewizard)
- When cells are to small, the cell overlay and the controls in it will be pressed together. I'll have to build in a minimum size for the controls box; or does anyone else has another idea?
tableWizard plugin, what do you think about it?
