it looks like it used to work in tmwiki: this is working topic text from the upgrade I'm doing - it breaks on foswiki.

%EDITTABLE{ format="| select, 1, Comms, Business, DG, Labs, LearnDev, 
Services, Tech, Staff | select, 1, Helpdesk, Publications, Software, etc 
| text, 20, init |" }%

I hope to fix this for 1.1.5, but it has probably been broken a long time (as this is a cairo-development pre-release)

Crawford, Arthur and well, anyone else that has thought about the EDITTABLE mess.

Note: this only applies to EDITTABLE that has a tml table following it - EDITTABLE macros with no attached table (so you can create one) can be dealt with by a proper macro handler!

what if we don't regex for


but instead multi-line regex for


as far as I can contemplate, there are very few things that are processed by edit(table|row), and they are

| table |

| table |

%EDITTABLE{.anything that can contain %{}%..}%
| table |

%EDITTABLE{.anything that can contain %{}%..}%
%TABLE{.anything that can contain %{}%..}%
| table |

so by changing that, we could cover

| table |

| table |

.anything that 
can contain %{}%..
| table |

that can contain %{
ing that can conta
in %{}%..}%
| table |

I'm proposing just to take )\n\| and remove the line-feeds and then send it on its normal way. - is there a glaring issue with this?

individual tests all pass, but running them as a suite fails. and tbh, I've got more pressing things to fix, so I'll leave this here for 1.2+

-- SvenDowideit - 22 Mar 2012

In release branch a number of tests fails even when run individually.

For example:
Can't call method "param" on an undefined value at foswiki.release01x01/core/lib/Foswiki/Plugins/EditTablePlugin/ line 286.

Which is
            $query->param('ettablechanges') )

so apparently the query object does not exist. Confusing.

-- ArthurClemens - 24 Mar 2012

Is this sufficiently important, or do we phase out this plugin?

-- ArthurClemens - 16 Jun 2012

y, we are phasing out this plugin for 1.2.0 - but its replacement should also do this - and from memory EditRowPlugin also failed

-- SvenDowideit - 17 Jun 2012

EditRowPlugin uses the parser from the core (or the copy in TablesContrib) so handles multi-line macros.

-- CrawfordCurrie - 10 Sep 2012

EditTablePlugin is no longer in the core for 1.2, so this drops to a plugin-specific issue and Normal status.
