Custom Show table properties dialog

Post by Johann »


I am using Oxygen Author web 25.0.

In my XML documents, I have CALS tables and I would like to be able to use the same "" operation (with the dialog) present in the DITA framework.

I tried to make my own implementations by creating or retrieving the following classes:
- CustomCALSShowTablePropertiesOperation
- CALSShowTableProperties
- CALSAndHTMLShowTablePropertiesBase
- ShowTablePropertiesBaseOperation

Everything goes well until I reach the ShowTablePropertiesBaseOperation#showDialog method, in which I don't see an implementation for Platform.WEBAPP so the code doesn't result in a dialog.

I don't understand how this "Show table properties" dialog is displayed in DITA and how to make a custom equivalent.

Thank you for your help,

The "" action is replaced for Web Author in the javascript code with another action that displays a specific dialog in the browser.
The code can be found in the table-show-properties-action.js file from the "web" folder inside the DITA framework.
