A common request I’ve been getting from customers of Visual Builder is to be able to edit multiple records that are shown in a table. Oracle JET has an editable table sample that shows how to do this in their cookbook, but the translation from the JET approach to the VBCS way of doing things was a bit tricky for some. I recorded a video and included basic instructions showing you how to implement the JET sample in your VBCS application below.
Beyond just implementing the UI aspect of the editable table, you also need to define a strategy of when and how you want to save the data from the table back to the data source. In the video below I’m using an approach that is easy to implement, but is probably not the best way to implement this. I loop through all the records and update them back to the data source one-by-one. A better approach will be to keep a list of rows that were changed and only send them to be updated.
