Our customer's application:
This script grabs contents from a text-based data file and sorts the data
before tabulating it into a HTML table. Visitors may click on
to sort the whole table based on that particular column.
This tool can work on any of the
following data files:
Existing text-based data files: Most non-SQL database CGI
scripts save records in a text-based file. This script can be used in
conjunction with your existing database CGI script. While you use your
existing CGI script to maintain your database, you can use Data Sorting
Tool as a standalone gadget to sort and tabulate the data into a table.
- Microsoft Excel: After creating a spreadsheet, save the
contents as "tab-delimited (*.txt)" data file using "Save As ...".
- Microsoft Access: Similar to the above.
pipe ( | ) or colon ( : ) delimited text file: Create the data
file using a text editor. Each record should be in one row. Fields in each
record are separated by tabs, pipes or colons.
You can also use Data
- Sort arrows: Visitors may
(ascending/ descending) to sort the table. The current sorting mode can be
recognized by the darkened arrow
- Primary column: Primary
column which the table is sorted upon can be separately colored.
- Your own template: The
table can be tabulated in your own template. Simply create a
template page and place
+++ (3 plus signs) at the location you want
the table printed.
- Default sorting column:
Choose which column to be sorted by default.
- Default order: Ascending
- Number of rows and columns: The
script can determine the number of rows and columns by itself.
- Ignore columns: You can
specify which column(s) to be ignored when the table is tabulated. This is
useful if that field(s) contains data which is not useful to visitors but
important for the database system.
- Field titles: You can
include the field titles using two methods:
- As a variable in the script.
- Using the first row of the data file.
- Title highlight: Toggle
title-bold or title-underline on/off.
- HTML code inclusion: You
may use HTML codes as part of the cell contents.
- Table settings: You may
customize the look of the table. For example: table width, cell alignment,
cell padding, cell spacing, border, font face, font face, font size, font
color, cell color .....
