Topic: select text content element on focus to editable table

Jacques Meirlaen free asked 4 years ago

Expected behavior

By clicking on a element of a editable table, I expect the text content is immediately selected.

Actual behavior

I don't know how to do that. Thank you to tell me if possible easily.

Hi. Do you want the text to be only selected or edit the value after clicking?

Hello, Both of them. When i click the element becomes editable (already done) and i'd like to have the content selected to update it immediately. By the way, is it possible to capture an event when the user has changed the value?

Unfortunately, I could not find a method that would mark the entire text at once. And look here: Its should work in MDB
