keys.editOnFocus

Since: KeyTable KeyTable 2.3.0

Control if editing should be activated immediately upon focus. Please note - this property requires the KeyTable extension for DataTables.

Description

When used with Editor (keys.editor), inline editing will not be triggered by KeyTable until a key value is pressed when a cell is focused (similar to Excel). However, you may wish to immediately place the cell into edit mode when the focus happens. This option provides that ability.

Type

boolean

Description:

true to enable editing on focus, false to disable.

Default

  • Value: false

The cell is not automatically put into inline editing mode when the cell is focused.

Example

Immediately trigger inline editing, when the cell is focused.:

$('#myTable').DataTable( {
	keys: {
		editor: editor,
        editOnFocus: true
	}
} );
