GridDataControl ignoring underlying data changes

I'm brand new to the SyncFusion product, so I'm probably missing something simple.  I am changing over from another 3rd party set of controls and thought I'd do a simple test with some grids.

I thought I'd load up 3 grids on a window and populate them all from the same ObservableCollection of view models (which do have INotifyPropertyChanged implemented).  The 3 grids are Microsoft's "DataGrid", your "GridDataControl" and my 3rd party's "XamGrid".  I am using the "ItemsSource" property on each of the grids to bind to my ObservableCollection.

All grids show the data .. all looks good.  I make a change to a view model in any of the grids and the DataGrid and XamGrid show the updated properties immediately (ie. as I leave the cell), but the GridDataControl doesn't update.  I have to actually click on the cell in the GridDataControl to get the updated data.  It's like it is ignoring the PropertyChanged event on the underlying viewmodels.  Do I need to turn this on - I couldn't find an option?  The other grids have it turned on by default, which I think is the desirable behaviour.

Any ideas how I should get this to work would be appreciated.

Hi Gary,


Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.


You can turn on the PropertyChanges to true by Setting the NotifyPopertyChanges=”True” in GridDataControl, bydefault it is false.  For your reference we have prepared a sample based on this and you can find the sample under the following location.


Sample: SyncfusionGDC.zip


Please let us know if you have any concerns.

I had a very similar problem, but in my case I was updating an order property on the selected row's underlying data.
And I wanted the selected row to move up/down in the GridDataControl.

I found a turnaround with theses steps :
1. Get the index of the selected row.
2. Set the selected row property to null.
3. Modifiy the underlying data (order property).
4. Move the row in the underlying ObservableCollection.
5. Set the selected row with the item at the new index.
