Is there a way to prevent the inline edit update in certain cases by listening to this event? I have tried return false with no luck.
That look like the Feature Requests in this post:
My goal with this (at the moment, at least) is to force a page refresh, or even better, just a refresh of a table on the page. My use case: updating quantities on an order, I have a table with each line item for the order where I can adjust quantity, and at the top of the page, along with the data about the order is a 'count' field that tells me how many total items I have, and a 'sum' field that tells me the total $ of the order.
I know I can accomplish some of this with a summary row at the bottom of the table, but I'm not interested in showing the sum of all of the columns (qty, per piece price), only the extended price.
