Hi Xaos,

From what I understand, you want to edit a grid with FF.=A0I have not seen =
examples of this having been done yet, but you may want to have a look at h=
ow Repeatable elements work. As far as the UI is concerned (toggling betwee=
n R/O and R/W) FF itself cannot help you there, you will have to use some j=
avascript=A0solution=A0(e.g. google for jquery grid plugins and see if anyt=
hing seems to do what you need).

Hope that helps,
