Change edit properties without modifying the source code

Question: 
How to make the edit form stays open after it's submitted? 

Solution:
The easiest way is to change closeAfterEdit to true in file cls_datagrid.php. However if you don't have access to the source code, use the following code snippet:

<script>
$(document).ready(function(){
    var grid=$("#orders");      
    var orgEditGridRow = grid.jqGrid.editGridRow; // save original function
    $.jgrid.extend ({editGridRow : function(rowid, p){
        $.extend(p,
            {   
                closeAfterEdit: false
            });
        orgEditGridRow.call (this,rowid, p);
    }});
});
</script>

Make sure to change "orders" to your own table name used for grid.
