Is there an event thrown when the user abort adding a new row ?


I have joined in a SfDatagrid the event AddNewRowInitiating and it works very well.

But I'm not able to find (if it exists) an event raised when the user decides to abort the new row insertion pressing the Esc key.
Is there the possibility to be advised by an event when such a situation occurs ?

Hi Silvio, 
We have analyzed your query. You can use the below code to handle AddNewRow abort operation by override GridSelectionController. 
this.datagrid.SelectionController = new GridSelectionControllerExt(this.datagrid); 
public class GridSelectionControllerExt : GridSelectionController 
        public GridSelectionControllerExt(SfDataGrid datagrid) 
            : base(datagrid) 
        public override bool HandleKeyDown(KeyEventArgs args) 
            if (this.DataGrid.View.IsAddingNew && !this.DataGrid.SelectionController.CurrentCellManager.CurrentCell.IsEditing) 
                // Write your code here 
            return base.HandleKeyDown(args);
