Jquery TableEditor not working

LZ1 used Ask the Experts™
Hey Experts!!

I have a regular HTML document, which I will end up using a MySQL database with PHP.  But for now I need a proof of concept.  

I can get the TableSorter to work and the box slide to work, but not the TableEditor.  
Here is the original Plugin/Demo: http://dev.iceburg.net/jquery/tableEditor/demo.php 
Any ideas?  I'm still trying to learn Jquery and Java, so please be gentle.

It would be really helpful If You could upload Your files packed as zip (styles, scripts, images) so we can have clear situation about plugins and their version. It could also save a lot of time.

Here you guys go.  I hope this helps

The page that I uploaded I have the slidebox and table sorter working, however I don't have the table editor working.
The error in IE is:
Message: 'constructor' is null or not an object
Line: 269
Char: 3
Code: 0
URI: file:///C:/heartaed/includes/jquery.js
Top Expert 2010

includes folder so I can replicate Your situation? Its missing.
Top Expert 2011


Sorry.  I completely missed it.  The includes are in the top level.  You'll see all of the js file extensions.
Top Expert 2010
Well, not so good news for You.

1) Combination of two jquery plugins that You used is made for very old version of jquery 1.0.3. Current one is 1.4.1.
2) Slidebox works with new version.
3) Tableeditor plugin works only if You remove these:

<script type="text/javascript"> $(document).ready(function(){         $("#hdr-srch").slideBox({width: "100%", height: "75px", position: "top"}); });    </script>

$("#hdr-srch").slideBox({width: "100%", height: "75px", position: "top"});

Change jquery reference from:

<script type="text/javascript" src="includes/jquery.js" ></script>


<script type="text/javascript" src="includes/jquery.pack.js" ></script> (older version)

Which can be downloaded from:


Then replace block in document ready part with:

$("#editableTable").tableSorter({        sortColumn: 'First Name',            // Integer or String of the name of the column to sort by.          sortClassAsc: 'headerSortUp',         // class name for ascending sorting action to header        sortClassDesc: 'headerSortDown',    // class name for descending sorting action to header        headerClass: 'header'                 // class name for headers (th's)    }).tableEditor({        EDIT_HTML: 'Edit Again',        SAVE_HTML: 'Save'    });});

disableheader is removed and also FUNC_UPDATE (its calling a javascript function that You commented).

Too much problems with this combination of plugins You picked.
Since slidebox is good for new version of jquery, I suggest You to change tableeditor and tablesorter plugin. Therefore I recommend You this one:


And demo is here:

Thanks Bosko.  I will look into the newer Jquery plugin this evening when I get home.  I knew that it was using an older version but didn't think it would cause this much havoc.  
The new plugin looks great and as long as it ends up functioning with my program, I'm good.  
I will post back tonight with more results or points if I get it working.
Top Expert 2010

Looking forward to it. And yes, old version is causing too much mess.
Top Expert 2011


It looks like I need to setup my PHP/MySQL DB for it to work.  That's fine considering I'm going that route anyways.

Good point, feel free to ask for help.
