serverSide causing table to return to the top after edit?

serverSide causing table to return to the top after edit?

rob1strob1st Posts: 74Questions: 18Answers: 0

I have two identical scripts on the test server.

One has serverSide enabled, the other doesn't. When I edit on the server side file, the table scrolls to the top, when I edit on the client side one, it doesn't. Both use the same ajax call.

test pages can be found here:

serverSide: https://test.assettrack.cx/asset/displayAssets_ss.php
clientSide: https://test.assettrack.cx/asset/displayAssets_cs.php

The code for the files is below, but apart from serverSide they are (should be) identifcal.

serverSide:

<?php

if(isset($_GET['loc'])) {
  $loc = clean($_GET['loc']);
  $loc = escape($loc);
  $_SESSION['loc'] = $loc;
  $sql = "SELECT docWBS FROM loc WHERE id = $loc";
  $result = query($sql);
  $row = mysqli_fetch_array($result);
  $_SESSION['docWBS'] = $row[0].'%';
} else {
  $_SESSION['loc'] = null;
  $loc = null;
  $_SESSION['docWBS'] = null;
}

if(isset($_GET['disc'])) {
  $disc = clean($_GET['disc']);
  $disc = escape($disc);
  $_SESSION['disc'] = $disc;
} else {
  $_SESSION['disc'] = null;
  $disc = null;
}

if(isset($_GET['at'])) {
  $at = clean($_GET['at']);
  $at = escape($at);
  $_SESSION['at'] = $at;
} else {
  $_SESSION['at'] = null;
  $at = null;
}

if(isset($_GET['ss'])) {
  $ss = clean($_GET['ss']);
  $ss = escape($ss);
  $_SESSION['ss'] = $ss;
} else {
  $_SESSION['ss'] = null;
  $ss = null;
}

if(isset($_GET['e'])) {
  $e = clean($_GET['e']);
  $e = escape($e);
  $_SESSION['e'] = $e;
} else {
  $_SESSION['e'] = null;
  $e = null;
}

if(isset($_GET['g'])) {
  $g = clean($_GET['g']);
  $g = escape($g);
  $_SESSION['g'] = $g;
} else {
  $_SESSION['g'] = null;
  $g = null;
}

if(isset($_GET['status'])) {
  $status = clean($_GET['status']);
  $status = escape($status);
  $_SESSION['status'] = $status;
} else {
  $_SESSION['status'] = null;
  $status = null;
}

ClientSide is the same but serverSide is false.

Any idea why I have the issue?

    This thread should help, it's asking the same thing.

    Cheers,

    Thanks Colin,

    I did look at that and the drawType, Loren uses inline editing, which I don't. And Allan did say he was looking to update this in the package so I thought it may be another issue.

    When I use the drawType with an inline fuction, I don't have any issues, the table stays where it is.

    I tried creating the function without inline editing as:

    $('#example').on( 'change', 'tbody td', function () {
        editor.edit( this, {
            drawType: 'none',
        } );
      } );
    

    When I do this there is no change to the behaviour and after update the page returns to the top. Did I miss something?

    That's close, but in the wrong place, I think. On line 245 of your code above, add:

            formOptions: {
              main: {
                scope: 'cell', // Allow multi-row editing with cell selection
                drawType: 'none' // <<<<<<<< this is the one here
              }
            },
    

    I tried it locally here and it's not resetting the scroll position, so hopefully that'll do the trick for you,

    Thanks Colin, I'll add that when I get home tonight and if all good mark it as the answer, appreciate the help.

    Worked perfectly thanks, for those using this as reference and copying, note the missing comma after 'cell'.

    Thanks Colin.

    Good to hear, thanks for reporting, and comma added in the example above :)
