  1. Full Table Edit
  2. Add A row
  3. make changes
  4. Add a row

It prompts me telling me that I will lose my changes.

The above should behave the same way that the EditTablePlugin works, which allows you to add rows and change data in between row addition. Its annoying to have to remember to add the correct number of rows before you change something. It is very natural to want to change data between row additions. This is something i think needs to be fixed before my users will accept this plugin.

I spoke to my team about the in between edit row clicking, and they suggested the following, in order of desired functionality:

  1. Save the changes automatically between clicks
  2. Disable the other buttons during a row edit so that the user has no choice but to finish editing before trying to edit another row
  3. Pop up a window warning of potential data loss, with options of "Save and continue" or "Cancel"

I added an automatic save to the row add.
