Topic: Table editor with Ajax

RonnieDavies free asked 5 years ago

is there a way to use AJAX with table editor to update database?

The data table loads via Ajax but I would like to update/add/delete too.

Hi, we don't have any tutorial on how to connect Tabe Editor with Ajax to update the database. Sorry about that. It's possible to do this. You can do this with a similiar topic like this: but there is only how to connect datatable with backend and we know that. You have to try for your own to do this.

Thanks for your response. That is a shame really. I can get it to read from the DB, but not update the DB easily.

I have found some articles from people who have managed to get it working, but it is quite limited in its scope.

Kind regards Ronnie

This is absolutely bs. What is the supposed use of a table with a front end saving feature if is not to save it to a db? Have something changed within 3 years? Did someone found a good example or a solution? At least, how do I extract the data from the table??

MDB5 Table Editor documentation shows how to create POST requests to your database in the JavaScript code tab.

Keep coding, Marcin
