variablelength input table
Posted:

I'm writing a short program that processes usersupplied financial data and finally plots the results. I'd like to arrange it so the input is via a table that the user can see and edit, and to which cases can be added. Is an extendable table possible?
Right now input is by way of
CreateDialog > Grid > InputField
and this produces a minitable, one per case. As soon as all the input for that case is done, the table disappears and a dialog asks if there are more cases. Instead of a temporary minitable for each case, I'd like to have a single, persisting table to which I can add cases as needed. The number of cases can't assumed to be known ahead of time.
I know Manipulate has a variable number of adjusters, but don't see how to apply this to my needs.
Any suggestions for doing something like this? Thanks.
