Chapter 10. Working with Tabular Data
Almost all applications deal with tabular data of some kind. An
application management tool typically shows a list with statistics
for installed applications and allows an operator to start and stop
applications from the list, and a human resource application may
display a list of employees and let an administrator select and edit
the profile for any one of them. The sample application we develop in
this book works with two sets of tabular data: the list of all
expense reports and the list of entries for an individual report.
In this chapter, we look at different ways to display and manipulate
tabular data, ranging from displaying a simple read-only listing to
developing an editable table.
