Hi,

I would like to have an editable datatable in HTML/JavaScript which can display thousands of rows without performance issues.

Please provide your suggestions.

Thanks,
Venkat

I would say good luck getting performance to work nice with that.

Browsers in general have a hard time rendering a table that large in a fast manner.

Are you not able to paginate it?
You also might want to look into lazy loading where you just load what the user has in their view plan.

Yes, lazy loading also is a good option.

How about using flash/ applet to display editable datatable?

Your thoughts?

Applets can have a longer loading time.

I have seen Flex used a lot with larger tables.

Thanks Eric.

By any chance do you know any open-source or commercial software which offer editable datatable component in flex?
