Problem with Editing

I have a button in a grid that changes the inline template and starts editing by calling the 'startEdit' method.

Why does this trigger a 'save' on the current data record?

My Code:-
col.HeaderText("Actions").Commands(command =>
                        .ButtonOptions(new Syncfusion.JavaScript.Models.ButtonProperties()
                            Size = ButtonSize.Mini,
                            Text = "Result",
                            Click = "onClick",

   function onClick(args) {

            $("#Editing").ejGrid("option", { "editSettings": { editMode: "inlineFormTemplate", inlineFormTemplateID: "#result-edit-template" } });

            $("#Editing").ejGrid("startEdit", this.element.closest("tr"));

After clicking button the inline editor opens then immediately after, as I have said, a save is performed resulting in the inline editor closing .... meaning I never get to edit the record.
