Table Pagination.. and hidden columns
I've been trying to get some more mature display technologies in place where I am for a little while now. Our data display paradigm is an XML data islands approach with paginated tables providing a view over the data.
There are three things I need to understand before I can start showing proof of concepts of this technology:
2) Hidden Columns - Usually, the table is displayed to allow the user to make a choice and take the selected item off to a further page to work on it. This is done through a value stored in the first cell of each row. That column is hidden. For a direct translation, I'd be looking to mimic that behaviour using the AW Grid (although to be honest, I think there are other ways to achieve the same aim). Can we hide columns? If so, how does this affect column numbering?
3)ID Values - Related to point 2. Can rows have arbitrary values associated with them (that are not contained in the visible cells)? If so, how is this currently handled when using XML data islands?
I'm still ploughing on through the documentation so I might end up answering my own questions but if anyone out there already knows I'd appreciate the heads-up.
And again, nice work on these components.
