Method and System for Facilitating a Tabular Diagram with an In-Context Editor

Disclosed is a method and system for facilitating a tabular diagram with an in-context editor. The tabular diagram with an in-context editor allows a user to create a diagram in a matrix or row/column format. The tabular diagram maintains the diagram execution flow horizontally in a row starting from the leftmost element and to the right. In addition, the newly added branches of the tabular diagram can be extended into the additional row and thereby, maintaining the execution flow in parallel with the original row.

In an implementation, the tabular diagram can be created through light weight web based solution using native HTML. Accordingly, the tabular diagram is capable of creating multiple diagrams in a single table and displays the diagram side by side. The tabular diagram which includes an in-context editor allows the user to modify and track the diagram logic easily.

while the original flow is intact in the original location. In accordance with the method and system, the tabular structure repeats for each added branch.

Fig. 2 illustrates a collapsible/expandable functionality of a tabular diagram with its nested branches. Accordingly, multiple diagrams can be visualized in parallel while comparing and recognizing differences between diagrams.
