Topic: Table editor - enable/disable

De Berardinis free asked 3 years ago

I bought a pro license to be able to use the datatable editor plugin, with JQuery MDB 4. I have seen the examples available on the site (

What I would like to use is the Content Editor. All the examples have keys to manage the activation / deactivation of the editor functions. This step is essential, that is, could I create a table implicitly enabled for modification? Otherwise, when clicking on the button to enable the modification, which method should I call to make the table editable?

Thank you all

I feel as stupid as it is. I created this simple snippet

for an editable datatable but it doesn't work, neither in view nor in modification.

Thank you.

You've added an external jquery library that corrupts your snippet. Please check my fixed snippet with your data:

There is no method to make the table editable. However, if you would like to have a table with a content editor that is by default enabled for modification you could try to trigger a click event on a toggle button after your table initialization. My other idea is you can remove .disabled-table class from tbody element of your DataTable that has content editor. This should work for enabling your content to be edited but you will still have to manually remove disabled attribute from the search element.

I hope this will help you with your problem.

Keep coding, Marcin
