    I don't think that it will happen. Permitting this had unwanted side effects.

     
  • In the old version it was perfect... some tables has no primary key because they are not needed or could result in unwanted side effects.

    The solution in 3.5 with all columns + limit 1 was a good solution. What side effects could happen?

    This kind of side effects (which was not only for grid editing but also normal editing):

    I don't think that in 3.5, there was logic to detect whether all columns of a table are in the results set.

     
  • This worked fine even in 2.x series, hmm but I seam we will not get it back... any workaround ideas for this?
