datatables editor autofill

datatables editor autofill

daniele.maccadaniele.macca Posts: 13Questions: 0Answers: 0

I've a problem with the autofill editor, I've used the example in the link "https://editor.datatables.net/examples/extensions/excel.html", for now in the trial mode.
When I drag the cross of the cell the editor returns a generic error,when I selected multiple cells the editor can not found the cells on the datatable, if I modify the "dataTables.autoFill.min.js" and it returns the cells IDs the autofill editor works but in the console there was an error and if I try again to select multiple cells the editor not works.
Instead, if you edit a single cell, after the first autofill and the console error, it works and you try again to edit multiple cells the editor works again but the console error returns again.

    Hi @danielemacca ,

    I just tried the example you linked to and that all appears to be working as expected to me. Are you seeing the problem on that page, or just on your own page?

    If it's on your own page, would you be able to supply the code or give a link so we could give it a try?

    Cheers,

    Colin

    I have attached the file with the creation of the editor and the datatable, I hope that is possible solved the issue easily

    Hi @daniele.macca

    We took a look, and there's nothing obvious there.

    Please could you send through those two error messages you reported, as that may help. And could you run the debugger on the table too, please.

    Cheers,

    Colin

    Hi @colin,
    the error in the console is very generic that you can see in the picture attached, about the "debugger" I've execute it but I don't know how I can send you the results, below I've paste the title of the page of the "debugger" because I think that there is a "code" after the title.
    If you need some more informations please tell me what you need.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Thanks for the debug trace and error message! It caused by a bug in Editor 1.7.3 I'm afraid. I've just sent you a PM with an updated version of Editor which contains the fix.

    Regards,
    Allan

    Hi @allan,
    I see that the mail have some problems in these days, could I ask that send me the correct editor to my personal mail?

  • daniele.maccadaniele.macca Posts: 13Questions: 0Answers: 0

    Hi @allan,
    I've found another error, the autofill editor works but in the console there was an error and if I try again to select multiple cells the editor not works.

  • allanallan Posts: 47,045Questions: 1Answers: 6,628 Site admin

    Hi,

    You'll be able to see the message I sent you by going to your forum inbox.

    Does the error you are seeing now happen if you update to the version of Editor I sent over?

    Allan

  • daniele.maccadaniele.macca Posts: 13Questions: 0Answers: 0

    Hi @allan,
    yes, the situation that I've describe in the last comment is happened after the update that you sent me yesterday

  • allanallan Posts: 47,045Questions: 1Answers: 6,628 Site admin

    Are you able to give me a link to your page showing that issue please? I've not been able to reproduce that I'm afraid.

    I'm sorry but for now is only on my local pc, only after that all is ok we publicate it, Could I help you with something else?

  • allanallan Posts: 47,045Questions: 1Answers: 6,628 Site admin

    Can you reproduce the issue using http://live.datatables.net perhaps?

    Thanks,
    Allan

  • daniele.maccadaniele.macca Posts: 13Questions: 0Answers: 0

    I'll try that and tomorrow i'll ask to my supervisor if it is possible to connect you to my pc for showing the situation.

    thanks

    hi @allan,
    I'm trying to use the link that you give me, but I've some problems to load the code.
    While I try I attached in this comment 3 files.
    the div that contains the datatable, the javascript that create the datatable and the editor, the example of the data that should be load in the datatable.
    If you have some updates or you need something else please ask me.

  • daniele.maccadaniele.macca Posts: 13Questions: 0Answers: 0

    hi @allan,
    I'm done the example on the link that you give me.
    http://live.datatables.net/nesoduci/1/edit
    if you try on the column "note" or all columns next the "position" you can replicate the error.

  • allanallan Posts: 47,045Questions: 1Answers: 6,628 Site admin

    Thanks. The problem is here:

                editor.on('open', function (e, mode, action) {
                    if ($(".focus select").length > 0 && field != "") {
                        $(".focus select")["0"].value = field;
                    }
                    editor.inline(this, {
                        submitOnBlur: true
                    });
    

    On open you are calling inline(). So when AutoFill does its call to bubble() to trigger the edit, you are overriding that, and its getting confused.

    What is the intention of that open event handler?

    hi @allan,
    I don't remember because I did that thing, I've tried a lot of things to have a correct functionality.
    If I remove that part of the code the autofill now works correctly.
    Many thanks for the patience.
    Only one thing before the closing of this conversation, on the datatable if I press enter the editor is open but if I release it the editor is closeing immediately, in your example the situation is the same, is that correct or is a bug?

    many thanks again, regards

  • allanallan Posts: 47,045Questions: 1Answers: 6,628 Site admin

    Yes that is expected. by default Editor will submit on return. If you want to disable that the form-options object's onReturn option can be used to control it.

  • daniele.maccadaniele.macca Posts: 13Questions: 0Answers: 0

    fine, the last thing.
    permit the autofill only in vertical and not in other type?
    or what is the method for intercept opening of the div?
    I've tried some method(load, create, etc.)

  • allanallan Posts: 47,045Questions: 1Answers: 6,628 Site admin

    I'm afraid there is no option to limit the fill to vertical actions only. That's a fairly obvious thing for it to do now that you've mentioned it. I've added it to the list.

    Dear @allan I'm daniele's manager, we just bought a license for him but the downloaded file with license does not include the fix you sent to him regarding this issue, when will the fix be available for public download? Meanwhile how can we solve this situation?
    Thanks

  • allanallan Posts: 47,045Questions: 1Answers: 6,628 Site admin

    Hi,

    Thanks for your message. Currently expecting to release Editor 1.7.4 with the fix next week. Until then, I've just sent yourself and Daniele a PM with the latest dev version of Editor that contains the fix.

    Regards,
    Allan

    hi @Allan,
    if I use the editor that you sent we if I'll try to do an edit, of one cell or multiple, I see an error.
    you can see it in the attachment

  • allanallan Posts: 47,045Questions: 1Answers: 6,628 Site admin

    Sorry - you'll need the nightly version of DataTables as well. That exposes the extender function that the fix in Editor makes use of (rather than duplicating code).

    Regards,
    Allan
