Is it possible to edit a data grid with a tab?

Greetings to all.
I was working on the Glide Page data grid, because it is the only one that allows me to check inline. Also great is the fact that I can delete a row by selecting it and pressing delete. All are quite simple and usable for the end user. Also for the insertion, nothing to object to the thing I don’t understand is the possibility of editing a row that I don’t want to be done inline because I have fields where one could make a mistake in the insertion and lose relationships. If I add an action, even if I select the row I cannot edit it correctly, because it always goes on the first record in the table. Am I doing something wrong or is it a limitation of the data grid?

So do you mean you want an action on each row that will open an edit screen for that specific row?

I don’t think we have something like that.


Yes, that’s exactly what I meant.

Not possible yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s in the works.

I’ll add to this… Currently, you can add an edit button to a data grid. There is a data target where the only option is “This Item”. When you select it, it will open the edit form with the first item in the data grid selected.

It would be super helpful if you could check the box on a row and then click edit to get the form. I can’t understand why that feature only gives you the first item and no other options. The data target should give you a “selected row” option. That would be perfect.


+++1 from me. Data Grid is pretty useless at the moment. You can add an “edit” button in the header, but as @profxeni says - that just edits the first row in the data set. :exploding_head:

Hi Daren,
I’ve been enjoying the flexibility of the data grid in Glide Apps, especially the ability to showcase multiple columns simultaneously. However, for my specific need to delve deeper into product details upon clicking, I’ve opted for the Collection Component.

While the Collection Component offers detailed views upon click, I find myself limited by the number of visible columns in the table view. Is there a method to expand the visible columns within the collection table? I’m curious if there’s a workaround that allows for a more extensive display without sacrificing the detailed view feature.

Any guidance or insights on how to maximize columns within the Collection Component would be greatly appreciated!
