Lets say my row has columns - A,B,C,D,E. When 'adding' a new row all five columns should be available on form. But once the row is added to the table, I want to disable editing on first three columns. So the 'Edit' Form should only show columns 'D' and 'E'.

    There are two options:

    1. Use the show() and hide() methods in combination with initCreate and initEdit to show and hide the fields as you need.
    2. Create two different Editor instances, one for the create with all five fields, and one for edit with just the two required.
