Re: [jquery-omaha] Jeditable - Edit In Place Plugin For jQuery

Interesting plugin.  I did something similar for editable start and end 
date links not too long ago.  It's not nearly as robust, but it's a 
minimal amount of code that accomplishes roughly the same thing.  I'm 
only using it for two links, otherwise I would have used a class as the 
jQuery selector.  It didn't really seem to be "plugin worthy" for our 
purposes, although I can see the benefit of using the plugin you linked 
if this type of functionality is common within your application.

                       var target =,
                           id =,
                           value = $(target).text(),
                           textbox = $('<input type="text" id="'+id+'" 

                       var originalLink = $(target).clone(true­);


                       textbox.change(funct­ion(e){ //fires first because 
it's bound first
                         var hiddenField = $('#' + id.replace('-link','­')),
                             newValue = $(this).val();



                       return false;
