In-place editing of attributes via an “index” page...?

Hi All,

I'm looking to use "in_place_editor_field" on an "Index" page of
items. Basically I want to mimic spreadsheet functionality for pre-
existing line items in order to edit their attributes. However, none
of the "in_place_editor" examples I've seen provide any useful real-
world application of this nature.

Also, a lot of the existing code examples don't work. I'm aware that
the code was removed from Core, but even after installing it as a
plugin, it doesn't seem to do anything.

Any ideas?

Best

I believe ActiveScaffold will do this. It may work for you out of the
box; if not, you can look at the code and get some ideas!

Hrm, it would appear that many of the links on the ActiveScaffold page
are broken our outdated. That kinda scares me. Still I'll check it
out. I may end up just creating my own helpers in order to do in
place editing. Although that means dusting off my AJAX knowledge and
a few older books. :wink:

Thanks for the post.

That's either new or a temporary problem. The plugin itself works
pretty well.
