Sorry to shoot more questions than answers here, here we go:
* does it mean that on a js-enabled browser, I would not be able to edit
in a traditional way?
* sometimes, data in Browse mode is truncated (see $cfg['LimitChars'])
but inline editing should permit to edit the complete data
* data can be transformed (see
* the display options can alter the data (partial/full text, relation
key/relational display field, etc)
* should a new inline edit icon be displayed along with the current one,
or should you use the same icon?
* what would happen with the rows checkbox which permit to edit the
