Confusion about NestedGrid


    I am developing an WPF application (C#) with the nestedgrid using Syncfusion version 10.2.
    When I changed the column of nestedgrid to different type of celltype, for example, checkbox, I found it hard to click. It often needed me to click twice to check/uncheck the checkbox.
    Besides that I found the data binding of nestedgrid cell to field was not good. It seemed that unless the cell lost its focus, then the source could be updated. Otherwise, the source stayed unchanged.
    I made the experiment on the sample (nestedgrid in VS 2010), and the issues occur as well. 
    Can you please give me a solution to that? Better with a simple sample. Many thanks to your attention and efforts.

Hi, some more details:

1. The UpdateSourceTrigger has been set PropertyChanged.
2. In a normal grid, the data binding is fine. It does not work in nested grid. I set a button  outside the grid to delete the save/delete the data in grid. If in a nested grid, when I finished editing the cell and clicked the button, the changes in the last cell I edited would not in the datacontext of that row. That means I changed the UI, but cannot save the data. I wonder if it is about the focus.

Thanks for your time. It is urgent so that I am very looking forward to your solutions.
