Getting Started

To enable editing:

  1. Set the editable option:

    .Editable(e => e.Enabled(true))

    The default edit mode is Inline. To use a different edit mode, specify it:

    .Editable(e => e.Mode(GridEditMode.PopUp))

    For more information, refer to the API options on the possible configurations.

  2. Declare the endpoint to which the updated records will be sent:

    .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
        .Update("Editing_Update", "Grid")
  3. Specify the Id of the Model within the DataSource declaration:

    .Model(model => model.Id(p => p.ProductID))

    The Model method configures the model of the data source. For more information, refer to the article about the Model definition.

  4. On the server, the expected parameters must be the DataSource request and the same model as the edited one:

        public ActionResult EditingInline_Update([DataSourceRequest] DataSourceRequest request, ProductViewModel product)
            if (product != null && ModelState.IsValid)
            return Json(new[] { product }.ToDataSourceResult(request, ModelState));

    For runnable examples, refer to the demos on implementing the editing approaches in the Grid.
