I then use an actionDoubleClick handler in the widget script to grab the appropriate array element and display it in an ask dialog. The value goes back into the array and I export the array back to JSON (jsonExport). Works well as long as the JSON elements don't contain large amounts of text - in which case you might need a custom dialog for displaying and editing the contents.
