Where I work, we have numerous tables that use JavaScript code to color table cells, based on their content. (It does this after the table has been converted to HTML.)

Following a recent update to TablePlugin, the JS code does not work as expected if the table parameters include a setting for databg.



Personally, I think that JS that runs on the rendered HTML should work as expected. Also, this code used to work prior to a change to Table, so the change breaks existing functionality.

Can we please undo whatever was done so that the order of evaluation is, once again

  1. whatever is set in TablePlugin page
  2. TABLEATTRIBUTES on current page
  3. %TABLE params for current table
  4. JavaScript that runs after page is rendered

See: Support/TablePluginSettngsOverrideJavaScript for additional details and working example.

I find it a bit of a stretch to say that if added javascript does no longer works, "it breaks existing functionality". But actually it is not the javascript but the embedded css on the page.

See TWiki:Support/TablePluginSettngsOverrideJavaScript for a working solution.
