Topic: Data exchange between editable table and modal forms

sundance free asked 3 years ago


How can I manage data exchange between editable tables and modalEdit form? How can I make it work?

I copied complete sample from tutorial, and I added the following rows:

  <link rel="stylesheet" href="../mdbe487/css/addons/table-editor.min.css">
  <script  type="text/javascript" src="../mdbe487/js/addons/mdb-editor.min.js"></script>

Expected behavior

  • Fields of modalAdd form can be saved,

  • data of selected row appears in modal edit form, data can be saved after editing,

  • clicking on delete button deletes selected row,


Actual behavior

Table edit does not work as expected, only validating entered data seems to work.

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.)

Best regards,

Problem partially solved as I replaced $('#dtData').DataTable row with $('#dtData').mdbEditor . Unfortunatelly important features I used earlier stopped working. There is no language translation, paging and sorting options, etc. How to migrate DataTable properties to mdbEditor? Which properties are inheritable? Which properties should I omit and delete?


  headerLength: 7,
  evenTextColor: '#000',
  oddTextColor: '#000',
  bgEvenColor: '',
  bgOddColor: '',
  thText: '',
  thBg: '',
  modalEditor: true,
  bubbleEditor: false,
  contentEditor: false,
  rowEditor: false,

  // $('#dtData').DataTable descendants
  //mdbEditor: true,
  language: languageHU,
  autoWidth: true,
  select: true,
  filter: false,
  paging: true,         // false to disable pagination (or any other option)
  lengthMenu: [[5, 10, 20, -1], [5, 10, 20, "All"]],
  pagingType: "full_numbers", // "full", "simple" option for 'Previous' and 'Next' buttons only

  // SORTING ---------------
  "order": [[ 1, "desc" ]],

  columnDefs: [{
    orderable: false,
    targets: 3

  dom: 'Bfrtip',
  buttons: [{
    text: 'Összes kiválasztása',
    action: function () {
    text: 'Kiválasztás törlése',
    action: function () {

Hi, I believe you just mentioned all the properties that don't work with mdbEditor. I need to admit that it all should work in both functions but for now, you need to pick which one you prefer. If you notice any other properties that don't work in your mdbEditor please share the list with us. We will test if they can be implemented in both functions.
