How to edit multiple inline coluns at the same time

How to edit multiple inline coluns at the same time

Hello.

Normally, when I click inside one column, the datatables editor pops an inline input for that column only.
I wanted that when the user click inside one column, all inputs pops, so the user can edit every column on the row.

There is a way of doing that?

    Sorry, Editor's inline editing option will operate with a single field at a time only. Inline editing cannot be done on multiple fields at the same time.

    Can I at least make a 'select' pop its values with a single click?
    Generally I have to click twice.
    Once for the editor to transform the label into a select, then again for the select to pop down its options.

    Frustratingly no. As far as I am aware, there is no API in the DOM that will let us programmatically open a select element.

    It's perhaps too late, but if somebody still need to do that, use selectize, you can programmatically trigger the select pop up
