I have recently had problems with EditTablePlugin and traced it to TWiki::Plugins::EditTablePlugin::Core::parseFormat, line 210:
        $theFormat = TWiki::Func::expandCommonVariables( $theFormat, $theTopic, $theWeb );

Under certain circumstances, after this $theFormat has an extra newline appended, which results in that the table does not correctly reflect the value stored in the topic when we have select, checkbox, or similar restricted types, for the last entry in a row.

We either need to figure out why the extra newline is added, or remove it in parseFormat.

-- DanDascalescu - 23 Mar 2007: Does this also cause the last item in a 1-per-line radio button list to not be formatted? Test case below:

last radio button item not replaced by image

last radio button item not replaced by image

Tried this and it is true. Tried different smilies and same problem. An annoying error because you cannot use Twiki variable either. Limits the use of the plugin heaviliy. Confirmed.

Note - to see the problem simply hit the edit bottons below the tables.

Was also raised in Item3800 which I have marked a duplicate.

Since more than one has reported this I think it is a very frequent annoyance and probably an easy regex fix for someone that knows the plugin. Raising to urgent.


The variables need a space on both sides to get expanded. This should be an easy fix. But normal text will get the extra spaces too, and that might not be desired. Take this example (rendered from my test code):

smile , frown item1 , item2

We could add the extra spaces only when a variable is used. But smilies have a loose syntax, so in that case a comparison table would be needed.
