jqgrid is excellent in all the things it does!. I know jqgrid can be used as grid as subgrid, it would really helpful when jqgrid can be used as picker.
Basically the idea is , when using celledit or inline edit and datatype is select, if there was way to render jqgrid as picker. This would be extremely helpful for searching long list and showing multiple columns
I don’t know how much work it would be, but a simple ability to open a specified jqgrid as picker would be sufficient. or I would really appreciate if someone can help me achieve this.
Thanks for all the excellent work.
Thank you Will!
I will check the knowledge base when you have example available online.
This is awesome! thank you Tony for the tutorial. I tried to add a comment to the article, it seemed like it submitted the comment but when I went back the comment was gone. I don;t know if I need to logged in.
One thing I would like to add for usability reasons, if there was way to open the picker model with grid when user clicks in the cell or tabs into the cell.
The picker should hide if user goes into another editable cell and destroyed with user presses the escape key or editing is complete.
To accomplish would I use dataEvents?
Hope this makes sense.
If I understand right you want a functionality similar to datepicker.
Actually it is not so easy. A possible approach is to use the focus/blur events on element, but I think this will make some trouble since the grid needs to focus a search fields.
It is really difficult using the current implementation of the grid, but not impossible. I will think about this, but do not promise that it can be done quick.
P.S. IMHO using jQuery autocompleter is another good solution too. In the same demo there is a use of autocompleter.
The comment in the knowledgebase needs to be approved. I just have do this.
It seems that this article will be very popular.
Here’s couple of things I added – don’t know if it is the right way to do
