Is there any way to edit the user date once added? There's an edit option on the table but that doesn't seem to actually persist the value.

It would also be useful to be able to re-order the columns on the table - hopefully that is just a setting on the control.

I assume you spelled it wrong and meant user data, as in the User note 1 to 5. In all tests I have done, when I edit them the data is persistent. Ie, it's there when I reload. Am I misunderstanding? Did you press the save-button after editing?

The columns are orderable. Though I have seen once that it broke, I then reloaded and it worked. If you find out what breaks it, we would be interested.

There's a save button? I just clicked off the row expecting it to be saved and instead had all the values disappear on me with no warning. Peering closer I can see the save and cancel buttons but they certainly aren't obvious (and loosing data without warning is just bad).

I guess the behaviour I was expecting (to allow quick and easy editing) was to be able to double click on a cell to be able to edit it and then click on the next one to edit that, using ctrl-z to undo any changes I didn't need (or perhaps esc/an explicit button to undo the entire row if you want to be really generous).
Yes, and that reminds me. It was the exact same case when I couldn't sort myself.

We are working on another editing procedure. The problem is that the library doesn't support multi-row-editing, we are looking into how hard it will be to implement on by using their hooks and events.

It is likely that the editing then will be done by a popup form inside the grid instead, much like how the search looks.
