The widget can allow a user to add, update and delete data. To control which of these operations are allowed, use the allowAdding, allowUpdating and allowDeleting options. Editing can be carried out in different modes, which are detailed in the mode option's description.
Use the allowUpdating property instead.
Use the mode property instead.

Default form editors depend on the columns' configuration. If the generated form does not meet your requirements, and you need to reorganize form items or set other form parameters, specify it in the form option. To link a form item with a grid column, assign identical values to the form.items.dataField and columns.dataField options.
Use the allowAdding property instead.
The following list points out the differences in editing modes.
A user edits one row at a time. The widget saves changes when the row leaves the editing state. See demo.
A user edits data cell by cell. The widget does not save changes until a user clicks the global "Save" button. See demo.
Differs from the batch mode in that the widget saves changes when the cell leaves the editing state. See demo.
On entering the editing state, a row becomes a form with editable fields. The widget saves changes after a user clicks the "Save" button. See demo.
Differs from the form mode in that the form with editable fields is placed in a popup window. See demo.
