Project Description
The Dynamic Grid Data Type for Umbraco is a custom ASCX/C# control that was created to store tabular data as an Umbraco "Data Type". There's an ability to add/remove rows/columns and it writes the whole grid to the database as an XML string. All done via UpdatePanels.

NOTE:
Changes in 0.8.1.0: Renamed nodes when stored from "NewDataSet" and "Dimensions" to "Data" and "Row". If you refer to "NewDataSet" and / or "Dimensions" in XSLT, make sure to update.

TODO:
  • Package control as an Umbraco Package (partway there - see documentation)
  • Create an Umbraco XSLT Extension to convert the XML to an HTML table so it can be displayed on the front-end.
  • Allow adding more than one instance of Dynamic Grid Data in a single Document Type
  • User-configurable default column names done
