Hello,

I have an application that uses jQuery for the front end, and classic ASP for the back end.
I am using datatables for forms.  What I need to happen is when I double click on the row of data, I need a modal window to pop up and be able to edit, save, or delete the record.
I have been able to create an alert pop up but have not figured out how to bring up the row of data in a modal window.  I have attached the ASP file and the jQuery file to this letter.
Here is the code to get the alert to pop up. Thanks for the help.

		$(document).on('dblclick','table.hoverStyle tr',function(){
			$('tr.selected').removeClass('selected');
			$(this).addClass('selected');
			alert('edit dialog displays');
		});

This is not trivial.

I suggest you remove the need for double clicking by

1

Adding a delete icon to the record

2

Edit in place
something like this (not tested)
<tr class="rowOdd">
            	<td><a href="#" class="edit"><img src="https://vsr.dev.fema.net/asd/images/icons/edit.png" class="icon" /></a></td>
            	<td><a href="#" class="delete"><img src="https://vsr.dev.fema.net/asd/images/icons/delete.png" class="icon" /></a></td>
              <td class="ID">1234</td>
              <td>SMITH, MARTY R.</td>
              <td>DOG, DEPUTY A.</td>
              <td>5/1/2013</td>
              <td>Virginia</td>
            </tr>

Open in new window


and
$(function() {
  $(".edit").on("click",function() {
    $('tr.selected').removeClass('selected');
    var $row = $(this).closest('tr');
    $row.addClass('selected');
    editRow($row);
  });
  $(".delete").on("click",function() {
    $('tr.selected').removeClass('selected');
    var ID = $(this).closest('td').siblings().find('.ID');
    if (confirm("Delete this row?")) {
      var $row = $(this).closest('tr');
      $.post("delete.asp",{"ID":ID},function(){
        $row.slideUp(1000, function() {
          $(this).remove();
        });
      });
    }
  });
});
var cellIDs = ["","","ID","name1","name2,"date","state"]
function editRow($row) {
   var $cells = $row.children('td');
   for (var i=2;i<$cells.length;i++) { // start at the 3rd cell
     $cells[i].html('<input type="text" id="'+cellIDs[i]+'" value="'+$cells[i].text()+'"/>')
   }
    // here we could swap the edit and delete for a save and cancel
}

Hello mplungjan,

Thank you for responding to my jQuery/ASP question.  I am glad to take your approach to coding this way.
The reason I need a pop up modal widow after clicking on the record is because of space.
Due to our web rules, I can only display 5 fields on a data table, however, there are 10 fields to enter/update/delete for each record.  Is this possible with the code you have given me?
thanks for your help.

Sure - you can hide the cells and only show them in the popup - I loop to end of cells regardless of visibility

Hello mplungjan,

I am somewhat new to jQuery and ASP would like to know,

How do I hide the cells and only show them in the popup and how do I loop to the end of the cells with the code you have given me?  I will take it from that point to read and learn.
I have increase the point value of the answer too.
I know it's not enough but thank you very much,

Would I be able to have the code like this? To use for multiple data tables in the app.
  How would I replace the alert part of the code>

		  $(document).on('dblclick','table.hoverStyle tr',function(){
		 	$('tr.selected').removeClass('selected');
		  	$(this).addClass('selected');
		  	alert('edit dialog displays');
		  });

OK, I am a little slow about this, I tried this and it did not work.

    $(document).on('dblclick','table.hoverStyle tr',function(){
    $('tr.selected').removeClass('selected');
    var $row = $(this).closest('tr');
    $row.addClass('selected');
    editRow($row);
  })

No, I was slow.

 $(document).on('dblclick','table.hoverStyle tr',function(){
    $('tr.selected').removeClass('selected');
    $(this).addClass('selected');
    editRow($(this));
  })
