Inline DT : display column

Inline DT : display column

Hi again

I would like to implement an inline editing DT with this layout :

id | description | value

When the user enters the 'id', the code will show the 'description' in the 2nd column (so read only) and jump to the 3rd column to be able to enter the 'value'.

How can i achieve this ? will the sql query and display job be done on the client side or server side ?

If you have any example...

Thanks so much, Bye

    Hi @x14841003 ,

    Is that for a new row, or modifying an existing row?

    If it's:

    1. click on id of an existing row
    2. give it a new value with Editors inline editing
    3. description appears (it would need to be returned by the server as part of the submit response)
    4. submitComplete could initiate inline editing with inline() on the row's value cell.

    Hope that helps,

    Cheers,

    Colin

    Hi Colin,

    It's for a CRUD web screen so both cases are expected.

    For point 3 would this be an AJAX call ?

    Thanks again

    Hi @x14841003 ,

    Yep. When point 2 submits the data modified by the inline edit, the server will respond with the full row of data - Editor always does this with edits. Your server script, as part of that response, will get that description field applicable to the ID, which Editor would then display.

    Cheers,

    Hi @x14841003 ,

    If you look at the /Editor examples, such as this one here, you can look at the "Ajax load" and "Ajax data" tabs beneath the table (plus the Network tab in the browser's development tools).

    Cheers,

    Colin
