    Is it possible to get the xml export of a table in the frontend?

    Hi,

    in short: No. There's currently no plan to add this feature, as the XML export/import feature is not used very much, and as it is not really useful in comparision to CSV or HTML. Sorry.

    Regards,
    Tobias

    Hello,

    thank you for the quick response. I understand, my use case is a bit odd: I am using the table plugin for backend editing, in the front end, I need besides the table output a graph (working with js charts, which is reading xml data).
    I'll just create the export dynamically for each table (on save) as xml and will read those files, no worries.

    On a sidenote: a limit or pagination function in the backend for editing huge tables would be nice, the browser gets really slow with 3000rows and 5columns...

    Best,
    Sissi

    Hi Sissi,

    ah, I see what you are trying to do... The manual export in the backend is indeed to only real solution for now then...

    About the pagination: Yes, that would definitely be nice. Unfortunately, I haven't yet found a nice way to implement this at this time, because the internal data format requires the current complex saving mechanism. I will keep working on it though, so maybe it is possible in the future.

    Best wishes,
    Tobias
