I am primarily a developer tasked with UI design.Please forgive my ignorance. I am developing a Form based application. There are multiple editable fields in the Form and each of these form elements are grouped as separate grids. I need to provide a way to edit these. Is it a good idea to open actionable modal popups for each of the grid. For instance if there are 5 grids in the page, I can open up popups for editing each of those individual grids (also for removing or adding rows elements.)
Can I also use one modal popup from another?
If this is bad UI design, can you please suggest me a better way? Your help is highly appreciated.(Also if you can, please provide further resources for reading up on this.)
