Today’s Coding Challenge March 17, 2009 8:16 am

Today I am focused on debugging a custom tree control which present hierarchical data created through AJAX calls, custom JavaScript, and jQuery. The data is built dynamically so state must be maintained such that if the user navigates away from the page and returns the exact same data is presented upon return. The collapsers must close only their related data without orphaning any nodes.

The presentation was prototyped as tables nested within tables eight levels deep. Yesterday this was corrected to be a single table with rows dynamically added and removed which broke the handlers. Before someone throws the word sematic out without thinking, a table is semantically correct in this situation. Time to get back to handling the handlers.
