Here is 500 points
I have a list of file descriptions that came from a database. using php
I want to allow the user to change the description by pressing
an edit icon
if they click on the description, I show them the file.
AFter the edit the name, I want to update the html table
with out refreshing the screen.
There are many files with Descriptions. and a varable # of them.
So need to pass the file ID, so I know which one they are updating.
if they did not have to press on the name to view, I would have tried Jeditinline
(Except you want them clicking on text instead of a file?)
I suggest you read the tutorial http://www.w3schools.com/jquery/default.asp
Then if you still have questions after that, please ask. Please try to be more specific. However, if you were asking the JQuery can do what you want, I think the answer is Yes.
