Is there any interest in what I would call an ediTable component for Agile UI? I find myself generating a lot of forms that basically are Tables/Grids that the user can edit in-line. The easiest example I can think of is a weekly timecard with columns for the account to be charged and daily hours for that account.
The user would have the ability to add or delete rows (all entries for that week for a given account, in the timecard example), and there would be a single save/submit button on the form that would update all the changed records.
I could see a benefit to having the ability to specify which columns were editable and which were not. If it were done in a modular fashion, it could support all the various types of input (i.e., check box, dropdown, calendar, etc.) in line in each row.
Do I do unusual applications, or do other people find themselves frequently putting this kind of UI element together? If you’ve put them together, have you used Agile UI to develop that interface? If so, please share your approach.
Any ideas/comments would be welcome.
