anyone particularly familiar with Yahoo UI? they've got some crazy widgets goin there
yeah i have used it a bit....i like good old prototype though
im trying to figure out how the widgets deal with copy and pasting. im trying to copy paste data from Excel onto a DataTable but I dont know what actually happens when i press Ctrl V or hit the Paste button. how does the widget know that data is coming... or something..?
this would mean that the very feature im trying to code is impossible!!!
BUT Google Spreadsheet does it seamlessly!! HOW DO THEY DO IT???
I've been using a lot of YUI for a while. I ditched Fonts and Grids pretty early as it didn't achieve the layouts and screwed with my css too much.
I'm using the Calendar control, and the most I've used is the TreeView, which I've actually hacked and extended myself, so I'm very familiar with it. Also used the Animation quite a bit as well.
prototype is not an alternative at all, more like framework...I just prefer it b/c it is simple and a nice starting place. Yahoo UI seemed like a lot of work to learn yet another api, although it is very well commented and documented.
Yeah Prototype rules \o/
anyone got a solution for this?
