* Example of how to use the tabledatamanagement object on a specific table.
* The table we use is a table named content, with columns: id (int), content (text), creationdate (date).
* This script shows you how you can use the tabledatamanagement object to handle your actions to your tables.
* You could also extend the tabledatamanagement object, so that certain methods are extended or disabled (by placing
* an empty method (for f.e. delete)).
* This example show how:
* - posted data can be used to store the data into the table
* What's cool (IMHO), is that you can paste the whole POST array to the object and the object it self
* nows which data to extract from it and also how it must be stored into the database (also using the necessary
* escapes)
* - a specific content page can be deleted
* - a specific content page can be loaded
* The object it self knows which column to use for a load (since the tablekey is "calculated" during initialization)
