Editing a stand-alone table

Hi everyone,

I am new to scripting and the API, and it would be good to have a clear idea of what to look into for this task.

I am trying to let users add information to a table (but not edit that table in any other way). Simply put, each time a user clicks the Submit button a new row will be added to the table (with the information that the user decided to submit �?? NULL values are fine if the user does not fill out all fields).

Can someone help me out with the workflow and let me know what I need to look into? I have been looking into the Attribute Inspector, and I would be fine with using that somewhere on my page (it does not need to pop up when a user clicks something �?? always having it on the page is fine).

I found some code posted by tmichael81 (03-25-2011 02:35 PM), but it is using an older version of the API and I am not sure if that would be usable with my code. Using a proxy page confuses me as well; is that always necessary?

Again, I am a beginner, and I am doing this for a master�??s project. It does not need to be perfect; I can write a whole chapter about what I would be doing differently in the future. Whatever implementation works best for a beginner is fine with me.

Thank you so much.
