CELL edit with Add, Delete and Export buttons

phpGrid has a less known edit feature called “CELL”. It’s similar to INLINE edit, but with only a single editable cell when selected. This is not a fully-fledged feature from jqGrid itself, especially it missed add and delete out of the box. However, we have hacked (but works) Javascript to included the add and delete functions through custom javascript.

Pay close attention to the “url” property. Be sure it points to a valid edit.php address.
