the edit mode of the current record will automatically lost when another record is selected. How can we avoid this? Is is possible to leave the edit mode by save or cancel button?

Hi Tuong Trinh,


Thanks for using Syncfusion Products.


We glad to let you know that we have created a workaround for your requirement. Please refer the below code snippets.




<script type="text/javascript">

                    $(document).ready(function () {

                        window.Temp_OnGRMouseUp = window.EG_OnGRMouseUp; //store this event in temp

                        window.EG_OnGRMouseUp = Custom_OnGRMouseUp; //define custom client side method to prevent selection and saving records on other row selection



                    function Custom_OnGRMouseUp(evt) {

                        var src = GetEventSrcElement(evt);

                        if (src.tagName == "TD") {

                            var td = GetGTCell(src);

                            if (td == null) {



                            var tr = td.parentNode;

                            var gridObj = GetEGridObj(tr);

                            var isCurRow = gridObj.IsCurrentRow(tr);

                            if (gridObj.GetState() == "Edit") {

                                if (!isCurRow) {

                                    gridObj.AllowClientSideSelection = false; //prevent client side selection

                                    evt.cancelBubble = true;




                            else {

                                gridObj.AllowClientSideSelection = true;







The above solution can be achieved by overriding the EG_OnGRMouseUp client side method and preventing the client side record selections with postback.


For your convenience, we have prepared a simple sample to demonstrate this and the same can be downloaded from the below link.

Please let us know if you have any concerns.
