extending onSelectRow with additional event parameter






posts 1210

Hello Tony,

I miss e (event) parameter in the onSelectRow callback function/events of jqGrid. The parameter exist in many other important callbacks/events: beforeSelectRow, onCellSelect, ondblClickRow, onRightClickRow.

The simplest use case for me which could use the event parameter could be placing the focus at the start of the inline editing on the cell which was clicked by the user. See the demo from the answer which uses ondblClickRow. To be able to implement the same in case of starting of the inline editing on the simple click of the cell one need have the e (event) parameter in the onSelectRow callback.

The parameter e (event) will be optional, because not all places in the code which use setSelection will be called by the user interection.

Here is the modified version of grid.base.js where the changes are made. The file includes additionally some very simple changes which introduces new jQuery events which can be very practical for writing plugins to jqGrid. I will explain the suggestion in the separate feature request. If you Tony want I can separate the changes and post there as pull request in github.

Best regards



Sofia, Bulgaria
