Our application is very heavy on data entry and must display pertinent data quickly and in an easy to peruse format. We have been moving towards an inline edit functionality wherein forms are by default in read only mode and become editable on click.
This has been fine for regular text fields and drop downs etc., but we've hit a wall with select lists. What we want to do is by default display only the selected or 'active' list items, and on click reveal the full list for users to select from. In our testing the read only and click to edit has been very confusing and we need to figure out a better solution - thoughts?
