If you test and study the HTML and JavaScript code of the script added in this page, you can learn how to add data from HTML table rows into a form with fields associated to each table column. So, to get for editing the table rows data.
Each row in the HTML table has a cell with an Edit button. When you click on the Edit-button, data from the cells of that row are added into form fields.
Then, you can send form data to a server side script (for example PHP) to process it, for example to update a MySQL table.
• It is important to keep the "class" and "id" attributes from html table and form as they are in the script; associated with the instructions in the JavaScript code.
