Editing

The Kanban control has support for dynamic insertion, updating and deletion of cards.

Set allowEditing and allowAdding property as true to enable editing/inserting respectively. The primary key for the data source should be defined in primaryKey, for editing to work properly.

You can start the edit action by double clicking the particular card. Similarly, you can add new card to Kanban either by double clicking the particular cell or on an external button which is bound to call addCard method of Kanban.

Deletion of the card is possible by using deleteCard by passing primary key as attribute.

NOTE

In Kanban, the primary key column will be automatically set to read only while editing the card which is to avoid duplicate entry in the cards.

Configuring Edit Items

You need to configure the list of data source fields that are allowable in editing state using editItems property. The field property of editItems needs to be mapped with data source fields.

You can map the data source field as title to edit form using title property of fields. By default, it’s mapped with primaryKey.

The following code example describes the above behavior.

  • html
  • <template>
      <div>
         <ej-kanban id="Kanban" e-data-source.bind="KanbanData" e-key-field="Status" e-fields.bind="Field" e-edit-settings.bind="editSettings">

    Form Positions

    Cell edit type and its params

    The edit type of bound column can be customized using editType property of editItems. The following Essential JavaScript controls are supported built-in by editType. And also you can define the model for all the edit types controls while editing through editParams property of editItems.

    The following table describes editType and their corresponding editParams of the specific data type of the column.

    EditType EditParams Description Example
    Numeric

    ejTextBoxes

    control for integers, double, and decimal data’s editParams: { decimalPlaces: 2}
    String HTML Textbox HTML Textbox -
    DatePicker

    ejDatePicker

    control for date data editParams: { buttonText : "Now" }
    DateTimePicker

    ejDateTimePicker

    control for date data-time data editParams: { enabled: true }
    DropDown

    ejDropDownList

    control for list of data editParams: { allowGrouping: true }
    RTE

    ejRTE

    control for customizing text in RTE format editParams: { allowResize: true }
    TextArea HTML TextArea Control for multi-line plain-text editing editParams:{height:100,width:200}

    NOTE

    1. If editType is not set, then by default it will display HTML textbox while editing a card.
    2. For editType property you can assign either string value (“numericedit”) or enum value (ej.Kanban.EditingType.Numeric).

    The following code example describes the above behavior.

    Column Validation

    We can validate the value of the added or edited card cell before saving.

    The below validation script files are needed when editing is enabled with validation.

    1. jquery.validate.min.js
    2. jquery.validate.unobtrusive.min.js

    NOTE

    If you enabled the unobtrusive option, then need to refer the jquery.validate.unobtrusive.min.js
    file in your application along with the other script.

    jQuery Validation

    You can set validation rules using validationRules property of ej-kanban-column. The following are jQuery validation methods.

    List of jQuery validation methods

    Rules Description
    required Requires an element.
    remote Requests a resource to check the element for validity.
    minlength Requires the element to be of given minimum length.
    maxlength Requires the element to be of given maximum length.
    rangelength Requires the element to be in given value range.
    min The element requires a given minimum.
    max The element requires a given maximum.
    range Requires the element to be in a given value range.
