QuickEdit view, does it exist?

Hi to all,
i need to achieve the following result.

In subpanel modify inline edit button to edit quickly only few fields.
A sort of quick create but instead creatinf new record just modify the current selected.

I see in include/MVC/views/quickedit.view.php but not clear what it does.

Can anyone use it before or is there any way to achieve this?

Many thanks.

There have been quite a few requests for Quick Edit, but it is still not a feature in SuiteCRM.

I managed to make it work.

You can create a custom SugarWidget and paste the following code inside:

    if(!defined('sugarEntry') || !sugarEntry) die('Not A Valid Entry Point');

    class SugarWidgetSubPanelQuickEditButton extends SugarWidgetField
        function displayList($layout_def)
    		global $app_strings;
            global $subpanel_item_count;
    		$return_module = $_REQUEST['module'];
    		$return_id = $_REQUEST['record']; 
    		$module_name = $layout_def['module'];
    		$record_id = $layout_def['fields']['ID'];
    		$subpanel = $layout_def['subpanel_id'];
            $unique_id = $layout_def['subpanel_id']."_form_".$subpanel_item_count; //bug 51512
    		// @see SugarWidgetSubPanelTopButtonQuickCreate::get_subpanel_relationship_name()
    		$relationship_name = '';
    		if (!empty($layout_def['linked_field'])) {
    			$relationship_name = $layout_def['linked_field'];
    			$bean = BeanFactory::getBean($layout_def['module']);
    			if (!empty($bean->field_defs[$relationship_name]['relationship'])) {
    				$relationship_name = $bean->field_defs[$relationship_name]['relationship'];

    		$subpanel = $layout_def['subpanel_id'];
    		if (isset($layout_def['linked_field_set']) && !empty($layout_def['linked_field_set'])) {
    			$linked_field= $layout_def['linked_field_set'] ;
    		} else {
    			$linked_field = $layout_def['linked_field'];

    		$html = '
    		<form onsubmit="return SUGAR.subpanelUtils.sendAndRetrieve(, \'subpanel_'.$subpanel.'\', \'Loading ...\');" action="index.php" method="post" name="form" id="'.$unique_id.'">

    		<input title="Quick Edit" accesskey="N" class="button" type="submit" name="projects_opportunities_create_button" id="projects_opportunities_create_button" value="Quick Edit">
    		return $html;
