is it possible to single-click to edit a field in Visualforce? I want to do it while in detail mode/inline edit mode. So basically change the behavior of being able to edit just by single clicking the field, instead of double clicking?

  • Just about anything is possible. What have you tried so far? Where are you stuck?

This is still an Idea over Ideaexchange portal.

Request you to upvote this Idea to get it considered by Product teams at Salesforce.

The main objectives of this idea is:

  1. Keep double-clicking as a selection tool
  2. For inline editing, hover over the field as now to bring up the pencil icon, and then click(single click) on the pencil to edit the field.
