New Feature: Inline Editing

08/14/2012 Posted by Brandon

We are thrilled to announce a major new feature we’re really excited about: inline editing for tables.

What’s inline editing?

Inline editing enables any table to work more like a spreadsheet where you can click on a cell and edit the value of that cell. This all happens without having to load any scenes or refresh:


Clicking on a cell immediately brings up a form to edit it.

Why use inline editing?

Inline editing is a perfect match for certain web applications. Think of any inventory app where someone is updating inventory with a tablet. You’ll have to continually be clicking on a product record, having it load an edit form, updating the inventory, hitting submit, clicking back to select another record…. that’s a lot of steps.

With inline editing you can directly edit a cell with just a few clicks and with no reloading. This can really add up for certain applications.
