Migration to GRID: FORMATLIST and CALC for formating

I'm really happy about the new possibilities provided by JQGridPlugin. However, when trying to convert my old SEARCH-based tables to GRID, I am struggling with the output formating options.

We were using FORMATLIST and CALC to format some fields, e.g.
  1. to link them to a related topic: [$topic][$formfield(SampleID)]]
  2. or to cut out the relevant part in order to reduce the cell width: $percntFORMATLIST{\"$formfield(SputterLog)\" sort=\"on\" unique=\"on\" separator=\", \" pattern=\"CreatecSputterLog( :alnum:*)\" format=\" $1\"}$percnt
  3. Moreover, sometimes even two different topics are mentioned in one field, which both need to get their appropriate hyperlink: $percntFORMATLIST{\"$formfield(Targets)\" sort=\"on\" unique=\"on\" separator=\", \" pattern=\"CreatecTarget([A-Z] :alnum:*)\" format=\" $1\"}$percnt

For this reason, I'm really missing the ability to utilize those macros. Furthermore the auto-linking of WikiWords is absolutely missing in my eyes.

I may file a bug for this as well, but first I want to clarify if I just overlooked something or if anyone of you could provide a workaround.

And a bit off-topic: what is the multiselect option for? I could imagine that this might be helpful for an export-to-Excel functionality or something like that...

Please use JQDataTablesPlugin which is a lot easier to use, i.e. when initializing from an HTML table.
