Please can someone assist me. I have data stored in mySQL. If i want to allow the user to view this data (say his/her profile information), and at the same time, when it is displayed, it is editable to allow the user to change certain fields and then save.
Hope i make sense.
Your text should be generated by mysql in the first place. The inline editor box could have an 'onblur' attribute or 'lose focus' event (known as a 'callback') that calls a php script to update the DB. This is standard Ajax stuff through jQuery. I haven't used this script, but it should be straightforward. There may be a callback function included in the properties of the object.
