Hi, how to edit the data in the table so that the “Edit” button redirects to the external form. I would just like to have a separate form, i.e. just like the dialogue option pops up, I just want to click on edit to get a form that I created or that I can compose. Can you do something like this or are there only those options that are visible on the site?
I am not sure what is the issue with this, as you can see Here the edit dialog is just a jqxWindow and you can have whatever content you need in it.
However, you can also check this Example, where you bind to the ‘click’ event of the Edit button, and add you own logic for opening your external form and then when you are ready editing, you will call the updateRow method of the DataTable to update it with the new data.
Firstly, if you are using a Grid the method is called updaterow. It is a callback property of the source which is executed when you invoke updaterow method of the jqxGrid: $("#grid").jqxGrid('updaterow', id, datarow);.
In this callback you should send a request to your server to update the data (ajax call).
You can see the code of this Demo on the site on how addrow, updaterow and deleterow are used.
