Supposing you had 10,000 product records. Can you show us how paging and
search functions are implemented in your pattern? Then there is the issue of
usability, progressive enhancement etc for those users who do not have
JavaScript or mouse support?

Kind Regards

Subject: [WEB400] DB Maintenance Design Patterns

I discovered the source of the problem with the link I posted a couple days
ago, and fixed it. Again, my apologies for the inconvenience.

I throw this out as a pattern for database maintenance that is efficient,
effective, and productive from an end-user's point of view. It seems that
the vast majority of browser based DB maintenance interfaces that one sees
in the wild are rather primitive in comparison.

Many of the mouse and keyboard options may not be apparent at first blush.
But once you become aware of them, they are quite handy and helpful. For
example, try Ctrl-Click to select multiple rows, then press F2 to activate
"Change" mode.
