CellEdit, CellSave, Validation event is not triggered


in edit mode I would like to refresh cell data after changing value of another cell. Unfortunately there is no serverside event because there is a implementation to process this already. Or is there a way?
I tried to handle this in JavaScript but the events CellEdit and CellSave are not triggered after editing, selecting or (un)checking. Neither declaring the events in aspx nor coding in JavaScript. As a workaround I also tried to change data in the validation but it seems validation events are triggered for columns with EditType String and Decimal only. For Boolean, Date(Time)Picker and DropDown it do not work.

Essential Studio Version:


<ej:Grid ID="GridDetails" runat="server" AllowPaging="true" AllowGrouping="false" AllowSorting="false" AllowKeyboardNavigation="false" AllowSearching="false"

OnServerEditRow="GridDetails_ServerEditRow" OnServerRecordClick="GridDetails_ServerRecordClick"

ActionBegin="detailsActionbegin" ActionComplete="delatilsActioncomplete" MergeCellInfo="detailsMergeCellInfo" CellSave="detailsCellSave" CellEdit="detailsCellEdit" AllowResizeToFit="true" QueryCellInfo="formatingCell" EnableRowHover="True" >


<script type="text/javascript">

$(function () {


    cellEdit: function (args) {





  cellSave: function (args) {




$.validator.addMethod("action", function (value, element, params) {


  return true;

}, "");


function detailsCellEdit(args) {



function detailsCellSave(args) {

Hi Andreas Hubert


Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion Products.


Query #1: events CellEdit and CellSave are not triggered


We have analyzed the reported query and suspect that the cause of the issue is that you would have missed out to set the editMode as “Batch” for the grid.


The events CellEdit and CellSave are triggered only when Batch editing is enabled.


We have created a sample with the provided information in v12.2.0.36 and the same can be downloaded from the below location.


Sample Link: http://www.syncfusion.com/uploads/user/directTrac/General/Sample1038942650.zip


Query #2: MergeCellInfo


We went through the code that you have provided and found that you have used MergeCellInfo property in your sample.


<ej:Grid ID="GridDetails" runat="server" AllowPaging="true" AllowGrouping="false" AllowSorting="false" AllowKeyboardNavigation="false" AllowSearching="false"

OnServerEditRow="GridDetails_ServerEditRow" OnServerRecordClick="GridDetails_ServerRecordClick"

ActionBegin="detailsActionbegin" ActionComplete="delatilsActioncomplete" MergeCellInfo="detailsMergeCellInfo" CellSave="detailsCellSave"CellEdit="detailsCellEdit" AllowResizeToFit="true" QueryCellInfo="formatingCell" EnableRowHover="True" >


We have included the cell merging feature only in our Volume 3, 2014 v12.3.0.36 release. You can download Volume 3, 2014 from the following link.

Query #3: it seems validation events are triggered for columns with EditType String and Decimal only. For Boolean, Date(Time)Picker and DropDown it do not work.


We are sorry to let you know that it is a known issue and the fix for this issue in included in the above Volume 3 link. Please upgrade your project to latest release to avoid the mentioned issue and for better follow ups.
