Vizlib Writeback Table - Bulk Edit

Bulk Edit 

When you're working with a number of data values, having to edit each value individually can be a very time-intensive operation. 


Vizlib Writeback Table contains a Bulk Edit capability which you can use to help with editing all the data values within a specific column at the same time, which can speed up activities like data segmentation, clustering, or binning and add real value to your business by improving the user experience of editing data.


Bulk Edit - Example

Before you start, select the column you'd like to work with and scroll down to the Bulk Edit panel. The default setting for the Bulk Edit command is Disabled


  • Toggle the Bulk editing slider to the right to allow you to edit the Bulk Edit properties (Figure 1). A paint icon should appear beside the column name in the header to flag that a bulk edit is in progress.
  • Select a Bulk Edit Mode from the radio button list. There are 3 options available, with the default setting being Active
    • Inactive - No bulk editing can be applied, but it can be turned on by clicking the icon in the column header. 
    • Active - Bulk editing can be applied, but can be turned off by clicking on the icon in the column header. 
    • Always Active - Bulk editing will always be applied, and cannot be turned on or off using the icon.

  • Apply Active mode and navigate to the first value in the row. 
  • Type some text into the data field. The changes you make to the first value should be reflected across all of the column values (Figure 2).
