Jquery php, update html after dialog - Update description with out refreshing page

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

It's rather hard to give a complete solution based on the information provided.

What are you trying to change the element's information to?  The file name?  The contents of the file?

You might get one of the experts to code this for you but it looks rather complicated and the problem (IMHO), isn't well enough defined to write any code.

I don't see a question.  Do you want something like this?

(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.

Here is the Root Question:

with out refreshing the screen.

( I said this because Lots of examples are for single item per screen)

I have seen lots of Jquery, but do not want to do the work myself.
I feel someone here wants the points to give me a good Solution.
