GridControl cell only changes after I change focus

I'm currently developing a Windows Forms application using Syncfusion's GridControl. The grid is updated every 250ms . But if one of the updated cells is selected, that cell value is not updated until I change the focus to another cell. Here's the code I'm using to notify which cells need to be updated.

Size _oldSize;
Graphics _graphics;

private void UpdateGridCell(int row, int col)
if (_oldSize != _gridControl.ClientSize)
if (_graphics != null)

_graphics = null;

_oldSize = _gridControl.ClientSize;

if (_graphics == null)
_graphics = _gridControl.CreateGridGraphics();

GridRangeInfo range = GridRangeInfo.Cell(row, col);

if (range == _gridControl.CurrentCell.RangeInfo)
_gridControl.CurrentCell.Model.ResetActiveText(row, col);
Rectangle bounds = _gridControl.RangeInfoToRectangle(headerRange);

if (!bounds.IsEmpty)
_gridControl.DrawClippedGrid(_graphics, bounds);

PS: I extracted this code from Syncfusion performance samples.

I used DrawClippedGrid in all cases and it worked.
