    How to allow the user to input a value in the data grid widget?

    Asked by Altbio on March 06, 2017 at 02:05 PM

    Hello,  I'm looking to get in contact with the widget developer who created "DataGrid" This widget is almost perfect for my needs but I'd need to add an additional column at the end with empty fields that allows for user inputs like Quantities for instance. 

    Is this possible or would I need to develop a widget from scratch. And more importantly is developing the widgets even a possibility given I lack programming knowledge?

    I see that the DataGrid widget is developed by our development team. Please be noted that the Data Grid widget allows displaying the content provided in the fields of the widget. Unfortunately, the widget doesn't allow any user input. You may consider using one of the following widgets to allow the user to input any data on the form.
