[4.2.0] Regression: Grid cell editing not working if grid starts out collapsed
It seems like editing of a grid does not work in 4.2.0 if the grid starts out collapsed. Clicking on the cells does not trigger editing in my example: http://jsfiddle.net/themel/6SsXh/8/
The same code does what I'd expect with 4.1.1: http://jsfiddle.net/themel/6SsXh/7/
Any ideas what to do about this / how to work around it?
Thanks for the bug report!
It looks like that has been fixed in the 4.2.1 Beta (tested in the latest nightly: 188.8.131.523).
