DataGridField is a product which consists of a table input component for Plone.

It uses Javascript to make entering tabular data more user friendly process - there are no round trip HTTP requests to the server when inserting or deleting rows.

Here are some key features of "DataGridField":

Any number of columns set by a developer
Any number of rows filled by a user
Insert and deleting rows without submitting a form
Many different column types


Plone 2.1.3 or Plone 2.5.x
A browser with Javascript support. There isn't yet graceful degeneration for browsers without or disabled Javascript.


Sometimes on Firefox column sizes start changing after the user enters some data. Not sure if this is a Firefox bug, though.
Prefilled default values work only for text and select columns

It does not include row re-ordering yet. ( although there is sample commented javascript code in the templates for this. It broke in Opera and is disabled till fixed)
