I've been trying to build a simple GAE app and to be able to manipulate the position of the text on the screen. I asked the same question on several forums; so far with no solution. I apologize if my question has not been clear.
Now I thought of achieving the same functionality with a grid, like a spreadsheet. Do you know how I can simulate a spreadsheet-like table in GAE? Or an html table where you can enter a string in each cell?
I feel like I am trying to re-invent the wheel. There must be a simple way to achieve this functionality. I would appreciate any suggestions.
Here are the links to previous questions:
What you are looking for is a data grid -- if you're fine with a client-side solution, and you're up for using jQuery then you might try DataTables. Here is an example of datatables with a pair of plugins to simulate a spreadsheet.
If you want to solve this with just GAE and no code on the client side, you could use CSS positioning to achieve your effect. Just generate a top: and left: attribute with position:fixed and you can cause the text to appear anywhere.
I'm not sure what you mean by "manipulate the position of text," but I don't think a table will be a good solution if you want pixel-level control.
