    I've created a grid with "save" and "create" buttons in the toolbar. Configured data source properly. Now when I hit "Add new record" I see empty row added to the top of the grid. That's fine, I can edit all cells, but one-by-one. When I want to fill out a cell to specify attribute value I have to click on the cell before to put it into edit mode! That's very inconvenient, it would be much easier if all of them were already in edit mode.

    Is it possible to have all grid cells shown in edit mode when new record is added?

    Hi Vladimir,

    Thank you for considering Kendo UI.

    The default Kendo UI Grid editing mode is "incell", whereas the specified desired behavior is provided by the "inline" mode:

    You can check out the following demo on inline editing:

    Let us know if you have other questions about Kendo UI.
