Add/Delete table rows dynamically using JavaScript

I'm trying to add/delete table rows following this example and this example.

Here's my code:

HTML Form

<div id="POItablediv">
    <input type="button" id="addPOIbutton" value="Add POIs"/><br/><br/>
    <table id="POITable" border="1">
        <tr>
            <td>POI</td>
            <td>Latitude</td>
            <td>Longitude</td>
            <td>Delete?</td>
            <td>Add Rows?</td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
            <td>1</td>
            <td><input size=25 type="text" id="latbox" readonly=true/></td>
            <td><input size=25 type="text" id="lngbox" readonly=true/></td>
            <td><input type="button" id="delPOIbutton" value="Delete" onclick="deleteRow(this)"/></td>
            <td><input type="button" id="addmorePOIbutton" value="Add More POIs" onclick="insRow()"/></td>
        </tr>
    </table>
</div>

JavaScript

function deleteRow(row)
{
    var i=row.parentNode.parentNode.rowIndex;
    document.getElementById('POITable').deleteRow(i);
}


function insRow()
{
    var x=document.getElementById('POITable').insertRow(1);
    var c1=x.insertCell(0);
    var c2=x.insertCell(1);
    c1.innerHTML="NEW CELL1";
    c2.innerHTML="NEW CELL2";
}

Now, as you can see, In my table I have text fields and buttons. What I want:

  1. Just to repeat the structure of the row. I can't do it right now since innerHTM just takes texts. How can I insert a textfield or label?

  2. The ids of the textfields should also be different since I'll retrieve the values later to put it in a database.

  3. I want to put a function to increment the number of POIs as well

Can anyone help me out please?

You could just clone the first row that has the inputs, then get the nested inputs and update their ID to add the row number (and do the same with the first cell).

function deleteRow(row)
{
    var i=row.parentNode.parentNode.rowIndex;
    document.getElementById('POITable').deleteRow(i);
}


function insRow()
{
    var x=document.getElementById('POITable');
       // deep clone the targeted row
    var new_row = x.rows[1].cloneNode(true);
       // get the total number of rows
    var len = x.rows.length;
       // set the innerHTML of the first row 
    new_row.cells[0].innerHTML = len;

       // grab the input from the first cell and update its ID and value
    var inp1 = new_row.cells[1].getElementsByTagName('input')[0];
    inp1.id += len;
    inp1.value = '';

       // grab the input from the first cell and update its ID and value
    var inp2 = new_row.cells[2].getElementsByTagName('input')[0];
    inp2.id += len;
    inp2.value = '';

       // append the new row to the table
    x.appendChild( new_row );
}

Demo below

function deleteRow(row) {
  var i = row.parentNode.parentNode.rowIndex;
  document.getElementById('POITable').deleteRow(i);
}


function insRow() {
  console.log('hi');
  var x = document.getElementById('POITable');
  var new_row = x.rows[1].cloneNode(true);
  var len = x.rows.length;
  new_row.cells[0].innerHTML = len;

  var inp1 = new_row.cells[1].getElementsByTagName('input')[0];
  inp1.id += len;
  inp1.value = '';
  var inp2 = new_row.cells[2].getElementsByTagName('input')[0];
  inp2.id += len;
  inp2.value = '';
  x.appendChild(new_row);
}
<div id="POItablediv">
  <input type="button" id="addPOIbutton" value="Add POIs" /><br/><br/>
  <table id="POITable" border="1">
    <tr>
      <td>POI</td>
      <td>Latitude</td>
      <td>Longitude</td>
      <td>Delete?</td>
      <td>Add Rows?</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td>1</td>
      <td><input size=25 type="text" id="latbox" /></td>
      <td><input size=25 type="text" id="lngbox" readonly=true/></td>
      <td><input type="button" id="delPOIbutton" value="Delete" onclick="deleteRow(this)" /></td>
      <td><input type="button" id="addmorePOIbutton" value="Add More POIs" onclick="insRow()" /></td>
    </tr>
  </table>

Answer

This seems a lot cleaner than the answer above...

<script>
var maxID = 0;
function getTemplateRow() {
var x = document.getElementById("templateRow").cloneNode(true);
x.id = "";
x.style.display = "";
x.innerHTML = x.innerHTML.replace(/{id}/, ++maxID);
return x;
}
function addRow() {
var t = document.getElementById("theTable");
var rows = t.getElementsByTagName("tr");
var r = rows[rows.length - 1];
r.parentNode.insertBefore(getTemplateRow(), r);

}
</script>


<table id="theTable">
<tr>
<td>id</td>
<td>name</td>
</tr>
<tr id="templateRow" style="display:none">
<td>{id}</td>
<td><input /></td>
</tr>
</table>


<button onclick="addRow();">Go</button>

Cheers !

<TABLE id="dataTable">

               <INPUT TYPE=submit name=submit id=button class=btn_medium VALUE=\'Save\'  >
               <INPUT type="button" value="AddMore" onclick="addRow(\'dataTable\')" class="btn_medium"    />

        var table = document.getElementById(tableID);

        var rowCount = table.rows.length;
        var row = table.insertRow(rowCount);

        var cell3 = row.insertCell(0);

Answer

If you put a delete button on each row, then:

<tr>
  <td><input type="button" value="Delete row" onclick="deleteRow(this);">
  <td><input type="text">
  <td><input type="text">

And the deleteRow function can be:

function deleteRow(el) {
    // while there are parents, keep going until reach TR 
    while (el.parentNode && el.tagName.toLowerCase() != 'tr') {
        el = el.parentNode;
    }

    // If el has a parentNode it must be a TR, so delete it
    // Don't delte if only 3 rows left in table
    if (el.parentNode && el.parentNode.rows.length > 3) {
        el.parentNode.removeChild(el);
    }
}

If all your rows have the same content, it will be much faster to add a row by cloning an existing row:

function addRow(tableID) {
    var table = document.getElementById(tableID);

    if (!table) return;

    var newRow = table.rows[1].cloneNode(true);

    // Now get the inputs and modify their names 
    var inputs = newRow.getElementsByTagName('input');

    for (var i=0, iLen=inputs.length; i<iLen; i++) {
        // Update inputs[i]
    }

    // Add the new row to the tBody (required for IE)
    var tBody = table.tBodies[0];
    tBody.insertBefore(newRow, tBody.lastChild);
}
Answer

1 & 2: innerHTML can take HTML as well as text. You could do something like:

c1.innerHTML = "<input size=25 type=\"text\" id='newID' readonly=true/>";

May or may not be the best way to do it, but you could do it that way.

3: I would just use a global variable that holds the number of POIs and increment/decrement it each time.

Answer

You can add a row to a table in the most easiest way like this :-

I found this as an easiest way to add row . The awesome thing about this is that it doesn't change the already present table contents even if it contains input elements .

row = `<tr><td><input type="text"></td></tr>`
$("#table_body tr:last").after(row) ;

Here #table_body is the id of the table body tag .

Answer

I used some of the solutions indicated above plus solutions from other postings to come up with a working solution for a dynamic table containing input fields. I'm doing this because it might help someone who finds this thread after searching for the same things that led me to it, and also because the accepted answer (and associated jsfiddle) doesn't actually work! That is, it doesn't index the table rows correctly after a number of inserts/deletes. The key issue is how to uniquely index the dynamic row data, which is possible with a bit of jquery:

<form id=frmLines>
  <table id=tabLines>
  <tr>
    <td>img src='/some/suitable/graphic' onclick='removeLine(this);'/></td>
    <td><input type='text' name='field1' /></td>
    <td><input type='text' name='field2' /></td>
    <td><input type='text' name='field3' /></td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td><img src='/some/suitable/graphic' onclick='addLine();' /></td>
    <td colspan=3>&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
  </table>
</form>

Note the form and table have id's for direct DOM referencing, but you can't use id's on the input fields as to make them unique you'd need to introduce an index which would massively complicate the code - and its easy enough to access them by name when the form is processed (see below)

Then the javascript to control adding and removing lines is like this:

function addLine() {
  var tabLines = document.getElementById("tabLines");
  var tabLinesRow = tabLines.insertRow(tabLines.rows.length-1);
  var col1html = "<img src='/some/suitable/graphic' onclick='removeLine(this);'>";
  var col2html = "<input type='text' name='field1' />";
  var col3html = "<input type='text' name='field2' />";
  var col4html = "<input type='text' name='field3' />";

  var col1 = tabLinesRow.insertCell(0); col1.innerHTML=col1html;
  var col2 = tabLinesRow.insertCell(1); col2.innerHTML=col2html;
  var col3 = tabLinesRow.insertCell(2); col3.innerHTML=col3html;
  var col4 = tabLinesRow.insertCell(3); col4.innerHTML=col4html;
}

function removeLine(lineItem) {
  var row = lineItem.parentNode.parentNode;
  row.parentNode.removeChild(row);
}

Then the final part of the jigsaw - the javascript to process the form data when its submitted. The key jquery function here is .eq() - which allows you to access the field names in the order they appear in the form - i.e. in table row order.

var frmData = {};              // an object to contain all form data
var arrLines = new Array();    // array to contain the dynamic lines

var tabLines = document.getElementById("tabLines").rows.length-1;

for (i=0;i<tabLines;i++) {
  arrLines[i] = {};
  arrLines[i]['no']     = i+1;
  arrLines[i]['field1'] = $("#frmLines input[name=field1]").eq(i).val();
  arrLines[i]['field2'] = $("#frmLines input[name=field2]").eq(i).val();
  arrLines[i]['field3'] = $("#frmLines input[name=field3]").eq(i).val();
}
frmData['lines'] = arrLines;

frmData['another_field'] = $('#frmLines input[name=another_field]").val();

var jsonData = JSON.stringify(frmData);

// lines of data now in a JSON structure as indexed array
// (plus other fields in the JSON as required)
// ready to post via ajax etc

I hope this helps someone, either directly or indirectly. There are a couple of subtle techniques being used which aren't that complicated but took me 3-4 hours to piece together.
