Is there a question, Shaun?
The question is how do I create a row action snippet that turns table fields on the row in focus to edit mode.
Just curious why you wouldn’t just use the built-in row action.
Otherwise, you attach a renderer to a column in the table:
var field = arguments;
var value = arguments;
var renderer = skuid.ui.fieldRenderers[field.metadata.displaytype]. edit ( field, value );
Instead of the edit mode, you can use read. Or, for a dynamic setting, use [field.mode].
