Help with repeating table

Help with repeating table

Hi there. I'm using the repeating table feature of DataAssist to display the results of a recordset in two columns. It works well, but the recordset contents print out left to right alphabetically instead of vertically.

In other words it's doing this:

Result 1 / Result 2
Result 3 / Result 4

Instead of this:

Result 1 / Result 3
Result 2 / Result 4

Is that how repeating tables are supposed to work, or can I tweak the settings to produce the second result?

This is how the repeating table works. The html is built line by line. If your rows are of consistant height you could have two tables side by side to produce a similar effect. The current implementation of repeating tables in dataassist does not support ordering as you describe.

Aw, shucks. Consider this a feature request, then!

Apparently there is an older extension from Tom Muck that purports to do this sort of looping, however. I may look into that one.

Thanks for the prompt reply, Ray. WebAssist really puts out some top-notch extensions, and offers excellent support to boot. That's hard to find these days.
