Create Virtual Tables Vol.2

Every once in a while a question similar to this one will appear in the forum. The problem is always the same: "how to create a lot of data based on very few records?". Today, one new variation of a puzzle followed. It took me arround half an hour in order to create a demo page, giving an idea on how to solve the problem. Of course, you need much more for a working version of an application.





The example in my demo application

is related to one of the examples from the past

which I already blogged about here

Still, this requirement is somewhat new and different. It is worth of looking into it.

Hi Denes,

looks like that the links not have a actual value in the href. -> Link doesn't work.

BTW, you should change the language of you blog to English, so that the automatic generated text (for example 0 Kommentare) is in English. Makes it easier for non German speaking people :-)

Dominic has a tool which generates data pretty well too:

Not sure if it can be used in this case but it might be worthwhile looking into perhaps?
