TablePlugin Documentation

TablePlugin uses a similar style to the FlatTablePlugin that was originally developed. The inspiration for the TablePlugin originated from the FlatTablePlugin. A number of issues where present with the FlatTablePlugin, such as no wiki formatting support amongst other things.

TablePlugin provides improved readability and syntax for building up complex tables within a wiki. The headings and rows are now defined in the same way, this helps with the readability aspect, even for very complex tables that can be defined using the TablePlugin.

The TablePlugin supports the following items within the cells:

  • Lists
  • Wiki Markup
  • HTML
  • Web links
  • Nesting (including nesting of the TablePlugin itself)
  • Full CSS support (fully customisable heading and row cells)
  • Flexible heading/column definition styles, multi-line or comma-separated
  • etc...

Table Styles

The table styles are stored as part of a trac page. This trac page should be setup by the TablePlugin the first time it runs. It creates a page wiki/TablePluginStyles that contains a default table style along with a CSS header style for the tables heading.

The styles should be written as follows:
