Password protect the edit possibility ?

QuestionsPassword protect the edit possibility ?
Davy asked 11 years ago

Hello all,

I was wondering whether I can password protect the edit possibility of a line in the grid ?

We would like that everybody can SEE the full grid with values but edit should only be possible after entering userid and password (which could come from a user table).

Any possibility for this ?

Thanks very much in advance,

Grid is an independent lib. You need to implement the authentication system byself.
However, you can put conditional session variable checks on set_action() function to make it editable if authenticated, otherwise not.

Hey Abu,

may I be so blunt to ask if I can find an example of this somewhere ? I have already worked with the set_action before (for opening another screen when pushing a button) but how could I tell the button to simply do what normally the edit button does (after checking security then).

Greetings and thanks in advance,

Assume your authenticated session have session var … logged_in

if ($_SESSION["logged_in"] == 1)
$edit = true;
$edit = false;

and now for e.g.

"add"=>true, // allow/disallow add
"edit"=>$edit, // allow/disallow edit
"delete"=>true, // allow/disallow delete
