Can not inline edit all columns in the front-end. The only column that in editable in the last one in the row . (see image below)

var childTable;
var childTable2;
var childTable3;
var editor; // use a global for the submit and return data rendering
var salespersonNumber;
var customerNumber;
var productNumber;

$(document).ready(function() {

   function format(rowData) {
        var childTable = '<table id="customerRows_' + rowData.salespersonNumber + '" class="display compact nowrap w-100" 
             width="100%">' +
            '<thead style="display:none"></thead >' +
            '</table>';
        return $(childTable).toArray();
    }

    function format2(rowData) {
        var childTable2 = '<table id="productRows_' + rowData.customerNumber + '" class="display compact nowrap w-100" 
         width="100%">' +
            '<thead style="display:none"></thead >' +
            '</table>';
        return $(childTable2).toArray();
    }

   function format3(rowData) { 
      var childTable3 = 
            '<table id="budgetRows_' + rowData.productNumber + '" class="display budgetDetailRow cell-border" width="85%">' +
            '<thead><tr><th>January</th><th>February</th><th>March</th><th>April</th><th>May</th><th>June</th>

            '</table>';
      return $(childTable3).toArray();
    }

    Your selector is 'tbody td:not(:first-child)', so all cells apart from the first column should be editable.

    Are you able to give me a link to your page so I can take a look?

    Thanks,

    Unfortunately it is behind our firewall, I could try to put together a test case how the data from the SSP is dynamically generate in the front-end, however I can not see where I can provide JSON for the front end in https://live.datatables.net/.

  • bbrindzabbrindza Posts: 308Questions: 70Answers: 1

    Would the SSP JSON data impact this in anyway, I wouldn't see how?

  • allanallan Posts: 62,435Questions: 1Answers: 10,246 Site admin

    I'm wondering if the $ in the names is causing an issue, but I don't think it is used at all in CSS selectors. The jQuery docs don't mention $ for escaping.

    I've just tried creating a simple test case with those same data names and it seems to work okay.

    Are there any messages on the console? Is it possible you have more than one definition for the editor variable (I see you have it global there)?

  • bbrindzabbrindza Posts: 308Questions: 70Answers: 1

    No messages in the console log.

    Could it be something to do with dynamically creating the table from the JSON retuned data in my format3 function?

       function format3(rowData) { 
    
          var childTable3 = 
                '<table id="budgetRows_' + rowData.productNumber + '" class="display budgetDetailRow cell-border" width="85%">' +
                '<thead><tr><th>January</th><th>February</th><th>March</th><th>April</th><th>May</th><th>June</th><th>July</th><th>August</th><th>September</th><th>October</th><th>November</th><th>December</th></tr></thead >' +
                '</table>';
          return $(childTable3).toArray();
           
        }

    Answer ✓

    No that looks okay, but looking at that code might have lead me to what the issue is.

    editor.inline( table.cell( this ).index(), {

    But:

    childTable3 = $('#budgetRows_' + id).DataTable({

    I think the table variable is wrong and should be replaced with childTable3.
