Inline editing


In numerous scenarios there's a requirement not only to visualize data in a table structure, but to have the ability to manipulate this data and save changes.

The Kendo UI grid widget supports data editing operations (create, update, destroy) via a simple configuration of its data source. All you have to do to enable data editing capabilities for the widget is to:

  • set the grid's editable configuration option
  • declare field definitions through the DataSource schema
  • configure the DataSource for performing CRUD data operations defining its transport->create/update/destroy attributes

If you want to enable new records insertion, you can do that by enabling the relevant option in the grid toolbar. For deleting items you need to include a delete command column.

This example aims to illustrate how to perform inline editing by setting the editable->inline option of the grid.

More details about the grid editing capabilities can be found in the documentation here.
