In Normal edit mode, when you start editing the currently selected record is changed to edit state. You can change the cell values and save edited data to the data source. To enable Normal edit, set the editSettings.mode as Normal.

Normal edit mode is default mode of editing.

Automatically update the column based on another column edited value

You can update the column value based on another column edited value by using the Cell Edit Template feature.

In the below demo, we have update the TotalCost column value based on the UnitPrice and UnitInStock column value while editing.

Cancel edit based on condition

You can prevent the CRUD operations of the Grid by using condition in the actionBegin event with requestType as beginEdit for editing, add for adding and delete for deleting actions.

In the below demo, we prevent the CRUD operation based on the Role column value. If the Role Column is Employee, we are unable to edit/delete that row.

Perform CRUD action programmatically

Grid methods can be used to perform CRUD operations programmatically. The addRecord, deleteRecord, and startEdit methods are used to perform CRUD operations in the following demo.

  • To add a new record to the Grid, use the addRecord method. In this method, you can pass the data parameter to add a new record to the Grid, and the index parameter to add a record at a specific index. If you call this method with no parameters, it will create an empty row in the Grid.
  • To change the selected row to the edit state, use the startEdit method.
  • If you need to update the row data in the Grid’s datasource, you can use the updateRow method. In this method, you need to pass the index value of the row to be updated along with the updated data.
  • If you need to update the particular cell in the row, you can use the setCellValue method. In this method, you need to pass the primary key value of the data source, field name, and new value for the particular cell.
  • To remove a selected row from the Grid, use the deleteRecord method. For both edit and delete operations, you must select a row first.

Note: In both normal and dialog editing modes, these methods can be used.

Move the focus to a particular cell instead of first cell while editing a row

The recordDoubleClick event allows you to move the focus to the corresponding cell (the cell that you doubled-clicked to edit a row) instead of the first cell in edit form. With the help of this event, you can focus the double-clicked column in inline edit mode.
