Data grid edit and increment

Hi team,

I am currently using a data grid component to display and edit column values.

 

However, for some values which contain many decimal places, or contain a large numbers of digits, it can be prone to user error.

 

I have put in place validation checks within the update logic to perform some input validation but what would be very helpful is an increment up/down arrow in the cells so that the user can move the existing value up and down without typing.

 

The only place I have seen this increment feature is on the timestamp section box, and find it very useful. 

 

Any ideas as to how I could achieve this? 

Thanks

Hi @jlucid !

Unfortunately, at the moment there's no way to achieve this, the reason being that it would overcomplicate the already complicated datagrid configuration.

However I do recommend using dataform to edit the values for single selected row.

Thanks,

Megan 🙂

Thanks for confirming Megan. I was also looking at the data form but I didn't see an increments option there. The best I could do there is provide the user with a drop down of values to select from.
