    Hi,

    For module builder widgets there is no way to implement inline editing as the supported way to add inline editing to a module or custom control is outlined here, however this is only supported in the built in modules or custom content based modules as the samples in sitefinity SDK, for module builder modules new inline editing functionality will be introduced later this year to provide inline editing for modules built with module builder.

    Is there an update on this?  I am using v6.3.5, but it looks like there is a method introduced with v6.2, but the post describing it gets a bit messy.  

     http://www.sitefinity.com/documentation/documentationarticles/how-to-enable-inline-editing-for-your-custom-module

     Is that the approved way for v6.3.5 and if so, is there a clearer description of what is required?

    Hi,

    For modules created by module builder you could use the build-in inline editing functionality.

    Since Sitefinity 6.2 release the Inline editing has replaced the Browse and Edit feature, and introduces improvements in the overall usability and user experience with the use of HTML 5.

    Editing is supported for the following field types:
    • Short text (such as: News Title, Blog Post Title, etc.)
    • Long text (such as: Content Blocks, News Content, Blog posts), uses Kendo Web UI editor
    • Images (in Image Widget, Image Dialogue in HTML Editor)
    • Flat and hierarchical classifications
    • Choice and Yes/No fields in Dynamic Modules
    • Date time field in Dynamic Modules

    Edits made to the content on a page are published at once using a “Publish All” button.

    Comments

    The reworked comments provide support for broad set of types - News, Blog Posts, Events, List, Images, Videos, Documents, Pages, Dynamic modules, etc.
    The feature includes:

    • Ability to manage all comments under a dedicated section in Backend
    • Comments section included in the templates of all content widgets: News, Blog Posts, Events, etc.
    • Page comments widget available for drag and drop on a page
    • Option to configure comments settings per content type
    • Capability to create custom content types and associate comments to them
    • Separate comments threads for the different translations of the commented item

    Thanks Stefani, is there documentation on how to code your templates so that the inline editing works for dynamic modules build with the module builder?  It currently does not work "out of the box", even with the default widgets created when the module was created.

    Hello,

    We have created a module using Module Builder in Sitefinity 6.3 and we added an item. We were able to edit it using our Inline Editing functionality. For your convenience I have created a sample video demonstration.

    Moreover, we have created a module using Module Builder in Sitefinity 7.0 and we added an item.We were able to edit it without a problem. Please review the second video demonstration.

    Please make sure that you are logged in the backend of Sitefinity to use the Inline Editing. I would suggest you to review the following article from our documentation.

    Furthermore, open your web.config file and make sure that you have the following section inside it:

    <!-- SERVICE STACK-->
      <location path="RestApi">
        <system.web>
          <httpHandlers>
            <add path="*" type="ServiceStack.WebHost.Endpoints.ServiceStackHttpHandlerFactory, ServiceStack" verb="*"/>
          </httpHandlers>
        </system.web>
        <!--Required for IIS7-->
        <system.webServer>
          <modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true"/>
          <validation validateIntegratedModeConfiguration="false" />
          <handlers>
            <remove name="ServiceStack.Factory" />
            <add path="*" name="ServiceStack.Factory" type="ServiceStack.WebHost.Endpoints.ServiceStackHttpHandlerFactory, ServiceStack" verb="*" preCondition="integratedMode" resourceType="Unspecified" allowPathInfo="true" />
          </handlers>
        </system.webServer>
      </location>
      <!-- END SERVICE STACK-->

    This is one of the upgrade steps you need to apply when upgrading to Sitefinity 6.2/Sitefinity 6.3/Sitefinity 7.0.
