Table view rendered using the SlickGrid_ javascript librairy.

Project Description


Table view rendered using the SlickGrid javascript library.

SlickGrid is an advanced JavaScript grid/spreadsheet component.

This view accepts any non-empty rset. It uses introspection on the result set to compute column names and the proper way to display the cells.

It is highly configuration and accepts the same wealth of option than cubicweb.web.view.tableview.RsetTableView.


To try it at the speed of light

Once your instance is running you can go to:

http://localhost:8080/view?rql=Any L, X WHERE X is CWUser, X login L&vid=slickgrid

That’s all. The rendered table uses the ‘slickgrid’ view.

Calling the slidgrid from your views

The simplest way is to call:

self._cw.wview('slickgrid', rset, 'null')

Options can be specified by class attributes:

  • displaycols, if not None, should be a list of rset’s columns to be displayed.
  • headers, if not None, should be a list of headers for the table’s columns. None values in the list will be replaced by computed column names.
  • cellvids, if not None, should be a dictionary with table column index as key and a view identifier as value, telling the view that should be used in the given column.

As well as SlickGrid specific option:

  • columns_options: a dictionary of SlickGrid column options

One can use:

class MyRsetGridView(RsetGridView):
    __regid__ = 'myslickgrid'
    headers = (_('first'), _('second'), _('third'))
    cellvids = {0: 'text', 1: 'inline', 2:'outofcontext'}
    columns_options = {0: {'sortable': False}}

self._cw.wview('myslickgrid', rset, 'null')

Note that the pagination is not working yet.
