Would it be possible to add a piece of functionality that would allow to preview/edit single record of my choice in dedicated popup window, that would list all record's properties vertically?
My problem came from the experience of working with large Magento tables having hundreds of properties. Scrolling the table's Data view horizontally is annoying, because content scrolls so fast (because of the amount of columns), that it's really difficult to find the right column. Yes, I know I can filter the columns, but it not always matches my needs.
I imagine the popup would have a grid similar to the one from table columns configuration grid (attachment). First column (Name) would look exactly the same, but the second column would simply show the value with the same ability to edit as in Data grid. Consecutive colums could show the actual data length and type. In contrast to the table configuration grid, this one would allow sorting the columns by name. The popup could be opened by doubleclick on the record (currently this action is not doing anything) or via context menu.
It's the piece of functionality I've been waiting for years. Maybe it's time for my dreams to come true? :)
