Chapter 8. The EditorGridPanel
This chapter covers
- Implementing an EditorGridPanel
- Learning to exercise full data CRUD cycles
- Deploying the DataWriter
In the last chapter, you learned about the GridPanel and how it can be used to display data. We integrated a PagingToolbar into our complex GridPanel to allow us to flip through large amounts of paginated data.
In this chapter, we’ll build on our previous work to construct a working EditorGridPanel, which will allow you to modify data inline much like you can in popular desktop spreadsheet applications like Microsoft Excel. You’ll also learn how to integrate context menus and toolbar buttons with Ajax requests for CRUD operations.
You’ll start out by creating your first EditorGridPanel
