Since: Editor 1.6.0

A button that will edit an existing row using Editor.
Please note - this property requires the Editor extension for DataTables.

The full Editor reference documentation is available to registered users of Editor - the information shown below is a summary only. If you already have an Editor license please , alternatively an Editor license can be purchased on this site, or sign up for the free trial.


This button provides the same functionality and options as the edit with the sole exception that it is enabled only when a single row is selected in the table. Unlike edit if multiple rows are selected this button will be shown as disabled (see also selectedSingle).

This can be useful if your data processing scripts that accept the edited data to be saved into a database do not support multi-row editing.

For full documentation of the options that this button presents, please refer to the edit reference documentation.
