How to add editable field in Ledger Entries in Business Central?

Many times we need to make an editable field in the business central on Customer Ledger entries or General Ledger Entries or Item Ledger Entries. On the Ledger  Entries, we can not add directly editable fields on the page because these Ledger Entry pages are designed to not allow modify fields because of below code.

So, I want to add field called comment on the General Ledger Entries. Now, what we can do if we want to add editable field on the General Ledger Entries? Firstly, we will extend table and add comment field and then will extend general ledger entries and add our field at the last.

tableextension 50261 tableextension50261 extends "G/L Entry"
{
    fields
    {
        // Add changes to table fields here
        field(50261; Comments; Text[250])
        {
            DataClassification = CustomerContent;
            Caption = 'Comments';
        }
    }
}

pageextension 50261 pageextension50261 extends "General Ledger Entries"
{
    layout
    {
        addlast(Control1)
        {
            field(Comments; Comments)
            {
                ToolTip = 'Specifies comments.';
                ApplicationArea = Basic, Suite;
            }
        }
    }
}

Now, Comment field has been added but it is not properly working. So, to make it working properly we need to subscribe one event. which is basically assign our data into the table.

codeunit 50261 EditGLEventSub
{
    [EventSubscriber(ObjectType::CodeunitCodeunit::"G/L Entry-Edit", 'OnBeforeGLLedgEntryModify''', false, false)]
    local procedure EditCommentOnBeforeGLLedgEntryModify(FromGLEntry: Record "G/L Entry"; var GLEntry: Record "G/L Entry")
    begin
        GLEntry.Comments := FromGLEntry.Comments;
    end;
}

Output:

This way we can do the same thing for Customer Ledger Entries and Item Ledger Entries to make field editable only we need to subscribe another event.
