jQWidgets jqxDataTable editable Property

  • Last Updated : 29 Sep, 2021

jQWidgets is a JavaScript framework for making web-based applications for PC and mobile devices. It is a very powerful, optimized, platform-independent, and widely supported framework. The jqxDataTable is used for reading and displaying the data from the HTML Table. This is also used to display data from various data sources like XML, JSON, Array, CSV, or TSV.

The editable property is used for setting or getting whether the specified jqxDataTable is editable or not. This property accepts two values that are “true” and “false”. When this property accepts the “true” value, then the data of this table becomes editable.

Syntax:

  • For setting the editable property.
$('Selector').jqxDataTable({ editable: true });  
  • For getting the editable property.
var editable = $('Selector').jqxDataTable('editable');
