Enable inline editing for all custom fields

Admin Columns support inline editing for custom fields.

Only use this when you are well aware of any formatting and validating rules on how your custom field value are stored. For example inline edit will not work on serialized custom field data.

Most editable fields will be text fields and contain the raw value of the custom field.

Type  Field
Color text field

Numeric text field

 

A few other fields will store the values according to this list:

Checkmark Displayed as single checkbox. Value will be stored as 1 or 0
