ASP.NET HTML Editor: New Table Cell Split And Merge Feature

The ASP.NET team has just finished a very important table feature for an HTML editor: cell split and merge. Using either the right context menu or the toolbar button, the ASPxHtmlEditor now has a complete table support.

Check out these ASPxHTMLEditor table cell split/merge images from the upcoming DXperience 2009 volume 2 release. This image shows the new table toolbar button:

The new table properties popup menu allows you to easily configure your HTML tables:

DXperience 2009 volume 2 from DevExpress will be released within a few weeks after the beta is released. If you’re a DXperience subscriber then you’ll have early access to the beta.

I hope you guys work on an image "gallery" manager.. i.e., let users upload to "folders" where they can pick and choose images.. kind of like a CMS!  That would be sweet.

P.S.  This looks really good too!!!  I'm very excited to start using the new 2009.2 stuff.

Matthew, check out the sample with this support issue .  It saves an image loaded to a database, that is then served up by a custom handler.

Will someone ever come up with a table editor that is similar to the one, let's say, in Expression Web, that Is actually usable?

Visually resize columns, is among the top priority.

Thanks Mehul (and Richard) that's a great example!  I really like the on-line example runner.  Quick and to the point.  Looking forward to the other stuff you have coming down the line!!

You guys are awesome.

We're just about to release v2009.2 and it would be a good idea to have an "accumulator"
