Interesting ... yes this is giving me ideas ...

Like the our support? (for a bug-free FC, despite having a long list of functions) Like the features? Like the ongoing development and future commitment to FLEXIcontent?

We could convert the multi-row edit form, that uses AJAX to save items, and add new fields on the fly via modal popups that open new field creation

The cells would display field value but on click in a row the cell would display their "edit mode" via again AJAX calls.

Yes this possible.

Plus in v1.5.6:
-- we already have mechanism for calling field functions via AJAX
-- we have updated fields to allow multiple edit instances of e.g. minigallery, related items, etc
-- we have updated items model to be easier to retrieve multiple items in a single (this needed since the edit display of an item is populated by the items model)

Yes it is feasible to have a multi-items tabular display of items, with inline AJAX editing ... and inline creation of columns (= new field in modal popup) or inline changing of column configuration (= edit field in modal popup)

As time flies by! :o ;) Any news on this field matrix/grid?
Or at least a separate data grid/table field like it has been discussed here ?

Hello

surely this is interested,

but other things are planned before this

e.g.
-- endless scroll
-- full faceted search/filtering (done, now being optimized)
-- other
