nice one, looking forward.

microdee 07/06/2018 - 14:51

actually it has the potential to do so :D

Sweet ... UI prototyping in spreadsheets.

looks like animation for business men :)

any chance you make this a standard contribution, like a zip.

of course i installed vpm to have a go with your reogrid plugin but it would be awesome to have the option not to install all the mp.essentials stuff. why, because things popup in the node browser i was not asking for. like some LFO thingi from essentials. feels like a windows update which places the edge browser link on your desktop, without asking.

and on the other hand, the information gets lost that this exists if it's only mentioned in a blog post.

this stays in mp.essentials because I'm already using it in several help patches for other things and I'm not really in the mood to atomize mp.essentials. about the nodes you didn't ask for I'm sorry for inconveniences but it's a 100% first world problem. maybe check them out too ;)

fair enough, his highness is not in the mood :D

Pretty cool! Well as cool as a spreadsheet can get at least ;) Thanks a lot. Although in the spreadsheet window i am missing the ability to insert or delete rows and columns. I think this is pretty important and useful thing to have. I was bit irritated not seeing it pop up in a row or column header context menu. Any chance this can be implemented in the future?
Something like this:

microdee 07/07/2018 - 21:34

it's already implemented with the + and - numpad buttons for rows and * and / numpad buttons for columns. https://youtu.be/2AhHjvxn5iI?t=14m51s
I agree a context menu would be also nice, it'll be there in next update.

tgd 08/07/2018 - 11:45

Totally missed that video. Also big fan of numpads, but at least on laptops they are getting quite rare:( Very happy about context menu. Thanks

I saw you also have Excel import nodes, that output ExcelWorkSheet (instead of WorkSheet). Unfortunately they are not compatible.

Is there a way to automatically feed Excel data into ReoGrid?

microdee 09/07/2018 - 15:39

unfortunately I (or someone else ;) ) have to write it. It would be awesome but They are 2 different libraries and for different tasks. I wrote the Reogrid implementation to be more of a direct manual user input thing and not displaying excel stuff. I wrote the other one (Ooxml nodes) for reading excel files what we receive from clients for example.

I am having a very weird issue right now with the spreadsheets. While working on a project, at some point the spreadsheet changed all values i had put in there by 2 decimal points. So values like 0.33 became 33, 0.5 became 50 and so on. I was not even working on the spreadsheet btw, just noticed some weird things happening and tracked it down to the plugin. The bizzare part is that we use git and even older revisions of the project have these values changed when i open them. I suspect some windows hickkup maybe? A reboot did not change anything. I wonder what happens under the hood in reogrid that something like this can happen. A different machine running the same project does not have this issue. @microdee any idea what could be causing this?

microdee 26/10/2018 - 06:15

@tgd: I know the issue, I also had to deal with it, I worked around it and supposedly fixed it in september, I'll check if I pushed that since then.

tl;dr: this is caused by a design error in reogrid where they don't store numbers in a cultural invariant way and it causes issues in cultures where the decimal point is comma (like in Germany)
