    CSV Table Paster Community Extension - Early Access release

    Note: that this is a community extension and not supported by Fantasy Grounds or Smiteworks USA, LLC.

    MODERATOR: See an update to this extension (with permission) detailed here: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forum...l=1#post444593

    This extension allows you to copy the contents of a CSV file (comma delimited) and then 'paste' it into any formattedtext field/control as a table. You can also overwrite the contents of a roll table.

    To use it:
    1. Copy the contents of the CSV to the clipboard (CTRL+C or similar)
    2. Open the window that contains the formatted text field/control or the roll table window (if its already open, close it and re-open it).
    3. If you are pasting to a formatted text field, type "#table#" without quotes on a new line where you want the table to show up.
    4. Click the dark green hammer and gear icon at the top left of the desktop.
    5. Click the Convert Clipboard button

    The entry should read "#table#" all lowercase without quotes. I'll take a look at this to see if adding roll tables stopped it from pasting normal tables.

    It also only tracks the most recently opened window that has a formattedtext field or control in it. So be sure and open that window (you may have to close and re-open it to set it as the selected window).

    In the future I'm going to look at selecting the window by clicking on it instead.

    Here is a video to show the process (you can't see me copy the text because its offscreen)

    Differences:

    • That one is limited to the 5E ruleset, this one works on any CoreRPG ruleset.
    • This one sets the first line of the CSV as the labels.
    • This one can paste tables into any window that has a formattedtext field/control (i.e. items, spells, etc...etc...)

    Great, thanks for educating me. Look forward to getting to a project on my list that can use this.

    Ok so they are both CoreRPG - this one creates inline tables for use in formatted text fields. The other creates rollable tables.
    It does work for me now using #table# instead of ##table##
    What do you mean by the first line is used as labels? On my test runs all cells look like <tr> and no <th>


    ahhhh tried pasting in a rollable table and it also did paste but in my test the first row appeared as a label
    the 2nd and third rows split nicely into columns, but rows 4-8 put everything in column 1.
    Also it seems to make an arbitrary decision to assign 2 values to each roll (eg 1-2, 3-4, 5-6).

    Can you provide a screenshot and the input text you copied? I'll take a look.

    Yeah, it is programmed to do the 2 values, its expected that the user will have to modify the numbers.

    In the next update I might have it do the table header in formattedtext fields/controls as well.

    I find it amusing that two solutions to entering tables appear (and I have been entering a lot of tables and I have a lot more table entry in frommof me).

    This one makes story entry easy, the other one makes rollable tables. Both are really appreciated.
