Question About Canvas Table Borders

Unread post by JefferyD »

I noticed that there are 2 borders around table cells on the canvas. The inner border is for the table row, but the outer border doesn't seem to be anything. When clicked, it just selects the parent cell behind it.

When the table is selected, an extra border is added along the outside and doesn't utilize the already present outer border.

What is this other border for? If it's not used for anything, then should it be used for the table instead of having an additional border that can't even be clicked on?

A table will have a header and three containers: table body > table row > table cell.
When a table is selected it's outer border is highlighted light orange.
When a table is not selected it's outer border is highlighted light gray.
The table body is not selectable and cannot be directly modified, instead use the header to select the whole table and change properties there.

Row has a solid gray border and white background (parent container is table body (white) and children are cells (gray)).

Cell has a dark gray dashed border and a lighter gray body.

Both rows and cells will change background color to light orange when selected.
Empty cells will change color on hover to light blue.

I hope this explains the UI design.

if you believe that the table view should be simplified or made more detailed, or if you have suggestions to improve it, feel free to share them, I am open to suggestions.

Oh, so that's the table body? I guess that makes sense.

Not sure if we want to make that the table then, but could it at least select the table when the body is clicked? It's currently selecting the cell behind it instead.
