Canceling an Add new row operation

I handle the AddNewRowInitiating event to detect when the user is adding a new item to a SfDataGrid. Supposing I detect the item being added is invalid for some reasons, is there a way to programmatically cancel the insert operation?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Alessandro,

You can validate the AddNewRow by handling RowValidating event of SfDataGrid. If you want to cancel the AddNew operation by validating, then you can use the below code to achieve your requirement,

using Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Grid.Helpers;
this.dataGrid.RowValidating += dataGrid_RowValidating;

void dataGrid_RowValidating(object sender, RowValidatingEventArgs args)


    if (this.dataGrid.IsAddNewIndex(args.RowIndex))


        //Code for cancelling AddNew operation by validating the args.RowData

        if (this.dataGrid.SelectionController.CurrentCellManager.CurrentCell.IsEditing)


        var AddNewRowController = this.dataGrid.GetGridModel().AddNewRowController;



Refer the below KB, if you are using below 13.3 version to reflect and cancel AddNew operation.
