It is nothing really anything to do with CGIDEV2. That is just a mechanism for observing data sent from the browser via an HTTP request, and returning data to the browser via an HTTP response.

Your problem is entirely down to the code you are running on the browser. You are running jquery presumably - and your table has a class of ".flexme". Why does your class start with a dot? It seems to me you have things the wrong way around. The class on the table element should just be "flexme", and the way jquery would be told to find it would be $(".flexme").

What you pass to jquery to find stuff is called a selector, and these follow the standard CSS syntax. So in CSS you define a class by starting it with a dot, but you don't include the dot on the elements to which you want the class to apply.

Has anyone used flexigrid with CGIDEV2 or some other similar Jquery plugin that might be able to provide me with an example.

I'm trying to learn a little by taking an existing CRUD type rpg application and converting it to use CGIDEV2(I've got the basic table working)
Now I'm trying to implement flexigrid and can't seem to get it to work. I don't get any errors in the Javascript console(Chrome) and it does appear to actually jump into the flexigrid script,
But I still only get a basic HTML table.

Some snippets of the code are

$(document).ready(function() {

<TABLE class=".flexme" border=1 bgcolor="#FFFFFF">

<th width="58" bgcolor="#2E64FE"> Select </th>
<th width="102" bgcolor="#2E64FE"> System </th>

I'm not really sure what else to look at to see where I might be running into a problem.
