from Item4455 (pattern skin bug only)

The first header cell in twikiTable has a twikiFirstCol class attribute. I would be glad if this is solved in a different way, but I want to keep the table header vertical lines.

I created a hand coded html table, and only added class="twikiTable" to it. This results in a table where there is a border all around the edge of the table, except for the left border of the hr element

When would you create a handcrafted twikiTable? It is used for TablePlugin tables.

-- TWiki:Main.ArthurClemens - 16 Sep 2007

like most of twiki, func - we can't predict how it will be used by others, so we make things work generically.

And this is a nice simple place which most people would expect to just work.

the other reason - it works in the other skins - what is wrong with pattern?

-- TWiki:Main.SvenDowideit - 17 Sep 2007

Perhaps other skins do not have different colors for the table border and the th borders. Otherwise I would be interested how other skins manage it.

-- TWiki:Main.ArthurClemens - 17 Sep 2007

prepare to be interested!


-- SvenDowideit - 17 Sep 2007

How are those th borders different from the table borders?

-- TWiki:Main.ArthurClemens - 17 Sep 2007

look, are you simply saying you're not interested in fixing the css in pattern to be robust enough? I'm not as familiar with the amount of stuff in the css, but I can see a snafu in whats there atm.

-- TWiki:Main.SvenDowideit - 17 Sep 2007

I am not. I have been trying to make the header color colors different than the table borders because I think white lines make the columns better readable when using a dark bg. If ease of programming has preference over ease of reading I can make the design simpler.

-- TWiki:Main.ArthurClemens - 17 Sep 2007

FFS Crawford, why is the hardcoded HTML table that I put into a PROTECTED section been turned into TML again?

Arthur, I'm still feeling a copout, rather than good programming design - which is not mutually exclusive to ease of reading.

-- TWiki:Main.SvenDowideit - 18 Sep 2007

Please report problems with TMCE against TinyMCEPlugin, with an example that allows me to reproduce the problem.


If the table border is a light gray almost noone will see the difference from white. I have simplified the styling.


HTML table with class twikiTable:

12345 12345 12345
12345 12345 12345
12345 12345 12345

TWiki table:

aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa
aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa
aaaaa aaaaa aaaaa

awsome smile nicely done.
