The check box marking disappears when the user leaves the Check box entry
I have several columns with check box's which have been created as described in How do I create a Check box. The problem is that the check box marking disappears when the user leaves the check box entry.
Using the Check box Class as described in How do I create a Check box isn't always the best solution especially when you have more then one column with a check box. The problem is that the edit-in-place queue containing the changed value for the check box is first updated when the user is finished editing. Since the field is transparent the check box value underneth this check box is shown when the user tabs away from the column.
Instead you can disable the check box column but still use the same Check box Class. In this way the template enables the user to change the values in the check boxes with one click without actually using edit-in-place.
Instead of disabling the check box you can also go to the Actions tab for the column using the EditCheckClass. Here you can select the Enable Emediate Record Update check box.
This updates the record being edited emediately. This function is best with few columns.
