HTML Page with grid and column help results on page are jumbled

Posted on 2015-01-22
Last Modified: 2015-01-23
To say I am a novice at this is best so the simpler the better. I am trying to create an html page with some javascript for a project type of tracking page. I found a site that gives me exactly what I need and I am trying to duplicate it on my local machine. Locally on my machine I setup some folders and sub folders that you will see that references the js for now. The problem I am having is everything on my page is jumbled as you can see from my attachment. The page I am looking to duplicate is at:

Can someone please tell me what I could be missing. I also provided my code in my attachment.

are you sure you import:

<script src="../lib/jquery-1.7.min.js"></script>
<script src="../lib/jquery.event.drag-2.2.js"></script>

<script src="../slick.core.js"></script>
<script src="../slick.grid.js"></script>


  <link rel="stylesheet" href="../slick.grid.css" type="text/css"/>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="../css/smoothness/jquery-ui-1.8.16.custom.css" type="text/css"/>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="examples.css" type="text/css"/>

It looks like I did not have the slick.grid.css and examples.css. I now have the slick grid css but cannot find the examples css. I am close. My screen now looks like the following (see new attachment)

Also one other question about the data populating the page. Where is this coming from and how do I modify?

data is generated here, but it's just for testing purposes:

 $(function () {
    var MS_PER_DAY = 24 * 60 * 60 * 1000;
    var data = [];
    for (var i = 0; i < 500; i++) {
      var startDate = new Date(new Date("1/1/1980").getTime() + Math.round(Math.random() * 365 * 25) * MS_PER_DAY);
      var endDate = new Date(startDate.getTime() + Math.round(Math.random() * 365) * MS_PER_DAY);
      data[i] = {
        title: "Task " + i,
        duration: Math.round(Math.random() * 30) + 2,
        percentComplete: Math.round(Math.random() * 100),
        start: startDate,
        finish: endDate,
        effortDriven: (i % 5 == 0)

Open in new window

I saw that but did not respond. So what do I get rid of without removing the grid and how do I put in my own data?

the above function produces 500 rows of some random data, organizing it into desired structure, records (rows) of 6 items (columns)

just put in place any other data import or data generator, up to your preference. you probably need to create a function to load data from db/other page/api service

I would have no idea being a novice how to acomplish this.

I mean, if you are doing such page, you surely have *some* data you want to show, right ? so you need to figure out how to put your data into javascript objects. there are a plenty of tutorials and how-to's around. if you make some attempts, certainly me or other experts will eagerly help you. But well, you need to know something at least. Good Luck!
