Edit Form Data

Use case:

a page contains an editable table, e.g.

| *Fruit* | *Color* |
| Apple | green |
| Cherry | red |
| Banana | Yellow |

Two people are viewing the page.

Person A edits the table and saves.

Person B decides to edit that table.

B does not see what A has done. B sees the table as it was before A changed it.

If I click the Edit link I see current data. The EditTable Edit button should also use current data.

User in our company says:

We have multiple people editing a table and if they do not refresh the page before clicking Edit, some new rows are deleted The page that they have in front maybe is 5 minutes old and somebody else already added a new row in the meantime. Once u click edit is not a problem because the table is locked, but the problem is in the time in between you open the page and the time that you click edit. The data that you have in front of you is not longer current data. I am assuming the Edit button is not refreshing automatically before Edit. That is a technical problem, It SHOULD refresh before edit
