Get the ids of the rows being edited.

When working with events in Editor it can often be useful to reference the rows that are being edited in the DataTable - this method provides that ability by giving easy access to the ids of the rows being edited (typically a primary key value from the database) - as defined by the idSrc option (defaults to DT_RowId).

Optionally the method can add a hash in front of each id value for use with the rows() method, allowing node, data, etc selection from the DataTable.

When called while editing or deleting row(s), the values returned reflect the ids of those rows being acted upon. If called while creating a new row, the value return reflect the indexes of the new row(s) being created, starting from 0 (create() allows for multiple rows to be created).
