17 Feb 20222 minutes to read

You can access the component instance from the component element using the ej2_instances property.

In the below demo, you can access the Editor component instance while adding or editing actions in the actionComplete event.

<ejs-grid id="Grid" dataSource="@ViewBag.DataSource" toolbar="@(new List<string>() { "Add", "Edit", "Delete", "Cancel", "Update" })" actionComplate="access">
    <e-grid-editSettings allowAdding="true" allowDeleting="true" allowEditing="true" mode="Normal"></e-grid-editSettings>
        <e-grid-column field="OrderID"  headerText="Order ID" isPrimaryKey="true" textAlign="Right" width="100"></e-grid-column>                
        <e-grid-column field="CustomerID" headerText="Customer ID" type="string" width="120"></e-grid-column>                
        <e-grid-column field="Freight" headerText="Freight" textAlign="Right" format="C2" editType='numericedit' width="120" ></e-grid-column>                               
        <e-grid-column field="ShipCountry" headerText="Ship Country" width="150" editType='dropdownedit'></e-grid-column>                


function access(args){
    if (args.requestType === 'beginEdit' || args.requestType === 'add') {
        var tr = args.row;
        var numericTextBox = tr.querySelector('.e-numerictextbox'); // numeric TextBox component element
        if (numericTextBox) {
            console.log('NumericTextBox instance: ', numericTextBox.ej2_instances[0]); // numeric TextBox instance
        var dropDownList = tr.querySelector('.e-dropdownlist'); // dropDownList component element
        if (dropDownList) {
            console.log('DropDownList instance: ', dropDownList.ej2_instances[0]); // dropDownList instance

public IActionResult Index()
    var Order = OrderDetails.GetAllRecords();
    ViewBag.DataSource = Order;
    return View();
