Rails Worksheet Pluglin
=======================

A Rails plugin that allows xls format worksheet documents.

Dependencies

JDK 1.4 or greater
YAJB 0.8.1 or greater
Jakarta POI (No need for install. Supplied as part of this package)

Install Instructions for YAJB

You can download YAJB from 
http://www.cmt.phys.kyushu-u.ac.jp/~M.Sakurai/java/ruby/yajb-0.8.1.tar.gz
Extract the tar to a temp directory and run setup.rb to install YAJB.

USAGE
=====

Exposes Jakarta POI library for XLS manipulation through a built-in object 
called workbook in the view template. View names should use a .rxls as the extension

# Simple Example

# views/controller_name/report.rxls

sheet = workbook.createSheet("new sheet")
row = sheet.createRow(0)
row.createCell(0).setCellValue(1)
row.createCell(1).setCellValue(1.2)
row.createCell(2).setCellValue("This is a Testing Row")
row.createCell(3).setCellValue("Guru Krupa")


# controller returns '110.xls'
def report
	@client = Client.find(params[:id]) # Which is 110
	render :action => 'report', :layout => false
end

# controller returns 'report.xls'
def report
   render :action => "report", :layout => false
end

# controller returns 'my-report.xls'
def report
   @worksheet_name = 'my-report.xls'
   render :action => "report", :layout => false
end

# For large Worksheet documents 

# Use CellBatch to batch the cell inserts/updates
# Use RowGroupBatch to batch the row grouping calls
# When only single sheet is present, the cell as well as row group
# changes are applied at once aumatically as a single Batch call using
# a custom java Helper function
# When multiple sheets are present, after doing the sheet specific
# cell as well as group operations call CellBatch.write_to(sheet_object)
# for cell updates.
# Call RowGroupBatch.group_rows to apply rowGroupings.

CellBatch.add(5,1,"Row 6 col 1")
CellBatch.add(5,2,"Row 6 col 2")
 
CellBatch.add(7,1,"Row 8 col 1")
CellBatch.add(8,2,"Row 9 col 2")

RowGroupBatch.add(7,8)

CellBatch.add(9,1,"Two rows above is grouped")
