Chapter 6. In-place Editing using script.aculo.us

In Chapter 5 we learned about the drag and drop features of the script.aculo.us library. We created elements, which we could move around the page, and also tried adding some AJAX functionality to them.

In this chapter, we will learn about editing the content in the page without moving, dragging, or dropping it. This feature is called in-place editing. The key topics that we are going to explore in this chapter are:

  • Introduction to in-place editing

  • In-place editing: Definition and attributes

  • Code usage in examples

  • Tips and tricks involving in-place editing

  • Hands-on example: Handling at the server-side

  • Hands-on with InPlaceCollectionEditor
