  1. Hi friends,

    very cool stuff, looks great, congratulations! 🙂

    I just found a bug in -> Table multiselect
    1. Scroll down to the last line
    2. Check “Average” in -> row 100
    3. Boom, the tables scroll resets back to 0

  2. Nice to see work in progress. I will test.

    I am here just talking out of my mind without actually testing (sorry, I know, not a good style):

    Our main requirements would be to cover most if not all of the functions that the DG is currently supporting and mainly to allow for the support of locales (dates, numbers, times …) to work (sorting, filtering, checking). It is not trivial.

    A less heavy weight without template stacks as the current DG uses would be nice. On the other side, templates are important. Just drop fields, images, whatever… and they work.

    A more robust way of displaying lists with groups and sub groups and their leading and trailing sections would give a big advancement. Again, FileMaker is a good example how to do this for lists but also use such lists for printing to PDF or the printer. (We developed our own print stack, but if that could be part of such widget… wow. I guess it would be an overkill for now.)

    Also in other languages, there are possibilities to use such grid to also work as hierarchical lists with fields and other items that can work together in the tree view.

    Then there is a huge need to be able to visually drag-and-drop rows within trees to move item (leaves and branches) from one branch to another, or moving up and down from one row to another changing the row number. Standard is to allow moving columns by drag-and-drop.

    To learn from others: In FileMaker there is a nice (even though limited way) to define “templates” and they work immediately and visually without going through an extended path. The template in DG is a bit obscure and it is difficult to immediately understand how it works.

    And then, did you solve “paging” when huge datasets are provided? How to safely use and display them is important for professional use in business. At least, developers could be made aware about how they could script paging on their side to give a smooth user experience.

    So, hoping for your progress for all of us…

    1. Hello Roland, our widget works mainly as a table, you can customize it in many different ways, easier than Data grid, but you can not modify core behavior and make it work like a tree or a form for example, demo stack eventually will contain examples showing pagination, sorting and filtering with PolyGrid
