    Dev Advice

    Hi UJ, I tried a PM but your inbox is full.

    I wondered if I might impose on you for a little dev advice. I'm writing a plugin that needs to display a lot of data in a table and I'd like inline editing. I see you're using the jQuery datatables/editor combination in a number of your plugins.

    I'm no jQuery/js expert and wondered if you might offer a bit of advice on how you wired up the datatables & editor into the HS3 GetPagePlugin/postBackProc structure?

    Do you manage table edits in postBackProc function of your plugin? And how did you wire up the editor to post the data to postBackProc?

    Any advice would be much appreciated as I don't relish the idea of writing the code from scratch in "GetPagePlugin" to render a long table with field editing and "enable" checkboxes for each row.
