I have to develop a table (a panel, a widget or what ever you may call) similar to GMail Inbox.
I mean, new arriving messages should be highlighted and pushed to the top of the table.
This is the first time I'm been asked to code such a thing.
Would you please give me some tips?
The application is Grails and jQuery
Does jQuery has plugin that already do this?
Thanks for help and time.
John, you've been around here long to enough to know you're not going to get great answers to "how should I code my project" type questions. ;) Adding new rows to tables using jQuery is pretty straight forward. Google can tell you how. Also, look at this for highlighting. As far as existing plugins, I don't know of any gmail specific behavior plugins but I really like jqgrid for most of my data table needs.
Any way, thanks for your time and help.
