onMove string Name of a Javascript function to call on onclick/onsubmit events when the user is either paging or sorting the data. This function receives a single object argument of the form: { page: <page>, sort: [{field: <field>, direction: <direction>}, ...], data: <user_data> }. Remark: setting this option doesn't remove the href attribute, you should return false from your handler function to void it (eg: for AJAX, etc..). null
onMoveData string User data passed in the "data" member of the object argument passed to onMove. No JSON serialization is performed, this is assigned as a raw string to the "data" attribute. It's up to you to add quotes, slashes, etc... ''
textSubmit string Label for the submit button 'Submit'


Basic usage

require_once 'Structures/DataGrid.php';

$datagrid =& new Structures_DataGrid();
$datagrid->bind(...);  // bind your data here



Usage with tableless renderer and DHTMLRules

// don't forget to include the stylesheet to get a reasonable layout

require_once 'Structures/DataGrid.php';

$datagrid =& new Structures_DataGrid();
$datagrid->bind(...);  // bind your data here

// create the form object, using DHTMLRules
$form = new HTML_QuickForm_DHTMLRulesTableless('editform'nullnull,
$form->removeAttribute('name');  // for XHTML validity

// to get a legend for the fieldset, we add a header element
$form->addElement('header''header''EditForm example');

// fill() makes the renderer to generate the needed form elements

// we have to add a submit button ourselves

// to show the DHTMLRules functionality, we add a required rule
// (we assume that there is an element with name 'id')
$form->addRule('id''Please enter the ID.''required'null'client');

// to get validation onChange/onBlur events, we need the following call

// instantiate the tableless renderer and output the form
$renderer =& new HTML_QuickForm_Renderer_Tableless();
