I have a sortable grid, when I click a link (add record) it inserts an empty record in the grid table and sets its editability to true (by default the grid table act as a read only one).
All works correctly but I am thinking about doing something else when I insert a new empty record the editor of the first column of the newly entered record must be activated. In other words when I insert a record the cursor should blink in the first column of the newly entered record as if the user has double clicked on it.
Can this be achieved using selectCell()? If so how it can be done if selectCell() is not the right function then how I can do this operation?
Thanks in advance
The 5th parameter of selectCell allow to set the cell in edit mode.
But there is one possible problem - If you have some button outside the grid, the next can be actual for you.
Latest version of grid by default has next behaviour - “any click outside of grid close current active editor”
When you clicking on any buttons - editor activated, but nearly immidiatly closed because there was a click outside of grid.
To solve problem just block onclick event propaganation ouside grid, by
