Your second post isn't any clearer than the first. HTTPS is not browser technology -- it's server technology. A web browser will display what the server sends to it.

If you are talking about displaying data from a database table, that is what DaDaBIK is for. DaDaBIK will work on HTTP and HTTPS sites.

oh, sorry. i meant would it display the delimited file in the browser, not the whole table?

like, instead of exporting csv as a download, just display it in the browser

thx smiling smiley

When I select the export to csv link in my installation, the browser presents me with a choice to either open or save. If I select open, it simply opens the csv data in Excel (because I have Excel on my machine and it is already set up to be the default for csv files). So this appears to be something that the user can choose.

yes, that's pretty standard. i meant 'dumping to screen', as phpmyadmin can do

i think i've finally explained it right smiling smiley

I assume it will dump to browser screen if you do not have Excel on your system with CSV files associated with it. If no program is associated with Excel, I'm guessing the data would just display in screen. Or you could write a function like phpMyAdmin has in it (which is quite large and detailed). Or to view on screen, just use phpMyAdmin.

The point of DaDaBIK is to provide a fron-end browser view of the data in a database. Additional and more detailed MySQL functions are still best handled by another proram like phpMyAdmin. The CSV feature was added as a convenience and I don't expect it will be further developed.
