- Toolbar can be customized by creating template like shown here:
You can create button which invokes the editRow method of the Grid and puts the needed row into edit mode. To find the row that refers to the current user you can loop through the rows in the tbody and use the dataItem method of the Grid to get the underlying model (and check the property that you look for)
- To create edit button inside the column, you can create template column with conditional logic which check if the row refers to the current user and if it does generate edit button. How to execute conditional logic inside template is covered here.
