View Full Version : using tables vs DIVs for layout.

20 Mar 2012, 3:48 AM
Hi Folks,

I have been working with GXT for sometime and have had a good experience in general.

I recently worked with a UI expert who has limited experience with GWT. He has extensive experience with CSS, HTML and javascripts.

He has been complaining about the fact that GWT uses tables for layouts and formatting.

The best practice is supposed to be using DIVs+ CSS.

I have looked into this in the past and found that there are a lot of debates, but no conclusions.

However, majority of the people are pro divs.

Any particular reason why GXT uses tables?

What are the advantages.
