Editable cell -> no update mode Custom


I had trouble getting a feature to work in Appsmith, as it required multi-row edit to be enabled, which was not mentioned in the documentation. However, I was able to make it work after switching to multi-row edit.


The solution to enable multi-row edit in Appsmith is to go to the Table Widget and enable the option "Multi Row". This option allows users to select multiple rows and edit them simultaneously. Additionally, the documentation and sample app should be updated to reflect this requirement.

To enable multi-row edit, follow these steps:
1. Open the Table Widget in Appsmith.
2. Under the "Table Properties" section, look for the "Multi Row" option.
3. Set the toggle to "On" to enable multi-row edit.
4. Save the changes to the widget.

Once multi-row edit is enabled, users can select multiple rows by holding down the "Shift" or "Ctrl" key while clicking on the rows. The selected rows will be highlighted and can be edited simultaneously.

Here is an example of how to enable multi-row edit in the code:

multiRow: true, // Enables multi-row editing

By setting the multiRow property to true in the TableWidget config, users will be able to use the multi-row edit feature.
