Inline editing of list items in SharePoint 2010

This feature is some of the very much awaited features amongst all new features in SharePoint 2010. People like to edit the item without opening that item in window. Just like ASP.NET grid provides the way of edit and then update by clicking edit button and then updating the record.

Well, now this was possible in MOSS 2007 as well, but it required little trick, but with SharePoint 2010, it is easy to do that.

Just go to the view settings of any list and then enable the in line editing option.

once you set this, you can see edit button for each list item and then clicking edit button will change the item in to editable mode, after change you can save or cancel it. just like how we do normally.

You can also add item without opening a NewForm.aspx. Click on + sign below last list item, which will allow you to add item.

I am sure this simple yet very useful feature will be used by many. Isn't it?
