Grid web application RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hello,


    I would like to build a web application based on a grid (“excel like”) with active commands (buttons, control boxes) that trigger specific actions such as arithmetical calculations (not very complicated) that fill in the rows / columns / cells of the grid, manually hiding / showing of columns and inserting rows, some basic charts based on the data grid, probably some others related tasks. Manual importing or copy-paste of simple Excel data entries is needed – probably 4-5 simple columns with text and data, as well as exporting the output to excel. The application should manage some 20-30 columns and probably up to 300 - 400 rows. Grateful if you indicate for a beginner the following:

    1. What application / platform should I investigate for creating such a solution?
    2. What would be the most suitable programming language I should learn to support the solution?
    3. Any relevant link to supporting materials would be also highly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance,
