lib-st provides a convenient way to create and display a scrolling table of data.
Supply column info and your table data, and you're off!

To get a handle in lua:

local ScrollingTable = LibStub("ScrollingTable");

To package in your addon, add to your .pkgmeta file:

externals:
    Libs/lib-st: 
        url: svn://svn.wowace.com/wow/lib-st/mainline/trunk
        tag: latest

Leave off the tag line if you want the absolute lastest alpha version from the site. (I try to keep a stable copy tagged as latest)

New Features:

Added support for calling SetData with a minimal dataset which can drastically reduce the number of tables that exist within the mod... at a slight cost to customization.

Other recent changes

If no args or colorargs are specified for value and color functions, respectively, instead of no args, these args will be passed:

function (data, cols, realrow, column, sttable)  
    -- sttable is a reference to the scrolling table
end

Here's some nitty-gritty:

  • Set names and widths of columns, lib-st will set the table width on it's own!
  • Set the number of rows, and a value to use for row height, lib-st will set the table height on it's own!
  • Set background colors for each column.
  • Set column text alignment.
  • Set column text color.
  • Set row text color.
  • Set text color on a cell-by-cell basis.
  • Supply functions to be evaluated for cell data, and cell/row/column text colors!
  • Filter table data via a filter funtion.
  • Table sorts are NON-DESTRUCTIVE. Data or the order of data supplied is never changed (unless modified by user supplied functions) for the display of the table. No copies of the data are made either. 1 Table, your data, sort it, index it as it was when it was created, update it as you see fit.
  • Hookable ui events. find out more here
  • Custom cell formatting with a custom display function
  • Enable selection on your scrolling table
