Table Properties not retaining values

    Table Properties not retaining values

    I have this in another post, but I thought it should have its own.
     
    The values in the Table Properties are not getting retained.  For example, if I create a table with a certain Width and Height, then I double-click the table to revisit the properties, the values are not what I changed them to, but rather they are back to the default values.
     
    I'm looking around, and it seems that there is a problem with this code:
     
      var arg=top.dialogArguments;
      var element=arg.element;
     
     if(element)
      {
       p_table=element;
      }

    -----

     function Submit(){
       if(element){
        element.borderColor=bordercolor_Preview.style.backgroundColor;
        element.bgColor=bgcolor_Preview.style.backgroundColor;
        element.border=border.value;
        element.cellPadding=cellpadding.value;
        element.cellSpacing=cellspacing.value;
        element.align=alignment.value;
        element.style.width=p_table.style.width;
        element.style.height=p_table.style.height;
       }
     
    That is in Insert_Table.asp.  Even after I've created a table, the variable "element" remains null.  It never gets into those if statements, so it always does the the else cases, which isn't right if the table already exists.
     
    This problem with not retaining values seems to occur on http://www.cutesoft.net/asp/EnableAll.asp as well.
     
    Thanks,
    Nathan

    I redownloaded v4.2 and this problem still occurs.

    Re: Table Properties not retaining values

    I discovered that when I try to output the var "element", in v4.0 it holds a value, but in 4.2 it is always null.
     
    For example, I tried this:
      var arg=top.dialogArguments;
      var element=arg.element;
     alert(element);
     if(element)
      {
       p_table=element;
      }
     
    So whenever I click the "Insert Table" button, or double-click on a table, I get an alert telling me about "element."  In v4.0, the first time I click Insert Table, it gives me "null."  Then any time I double-click on a table to view the properties, I get "[object]" and the values are retained.  In 4.2, whenever I double-click on a table, it still says "null."
     
    This is telling me that maybe the new values aren't getting written to the element.  I'm not sure why that would be.  I did a compare on the Insert_Table.asp file from v4.0 and v4.2, and they are identical. 
     
    Hope that helps.

    Any luck with this?  Seems to be a bug in 4.2.

    ngaudreau,

    In the version 4.2 we have two table dialogs. Both of them use the insert_table.asp.

    When you click the insert a new table, we pass a null to the insert_table.asp dialog, in this case, a new table will be created.

    However if the client click the modify table button, we search the table element and pass it the insert_table.asp dialog, now the users can edit the existing table properties.

    It's not a bug.

    Re: Table Properties not retaining values

    Ah, I did not see the Modify Table icon in the help file.  But I've added it now and there seems to still be a couple of problems.
     
    For example, if I try changing the number of rows and columns, it doesnt apply it to the table (perhaps that is just how it works).  It also doesn't retain the alignment value.
     
    Also, it seems more intuitive to have the Modify Table appear when double-clicking on a table rather than a New Table window(null being passed to insert_table.asp).
     
    Thanks,
    Nathan

    Are these known issues?

    Nathan,

    >>For example, if I try changing the number of rows and columns, it doesnt apply it to the table (perhaps that is just how it works). 

    Those option should be disabled when editng the table properties.

    >> It also doesn't retain the alignment value.
     
    We will look at this issue and get back to you as soon as possible.

    >>Also, it seems more intuitive to have the Modify Table appear when double-clicking on a table rather than a New Table window(null being passed to insert_table.asp).

    That makese sense.

    We will write a quick solution to this tonight.

    Please download the software again tomorrow.

    Re: Table Properties not retaining values

    Ya, I figured that the rows and columns drop downs should be disabled, but they are not.  Maybe they should just display the number of rows and columns as a static integer on the window, rather than in a drop down.
     
    I will download the file again tomorrow.  Thank you very much.
