update binding source of a GridTextColumn as soon as a change is made

I am using sfdatagrid in a Xamarin Forms application with MVVM. I am binding the columns through the MappingName property. I want to support the edit functionality within the Grid. It seems it only updates the binded property when the focus leaves the cell to another cell. Is it possible to update the underlying property as soon as  user changes the column cell value. I found another article here with the same issue here https://www.syncfusion.com/forums/129684/is-it-possible-to-update-binding-source-of-a-gridtextcolumn-as-soon-as-a-change-is-made for WPF. I can't find any such property in the Xamarin Forms version.

Hi Pawan, 
Thanks for Contacting Syncfusion support. 
We have understand your requirement. Your requirement of updating the underlying property when user changes the column cell value can be achieved by setting Mode=TwoWay in Value binding property . 
Refer the below code example for more details. 
<sfGrid:SfDataGrid x:Name="dataGrid" 
                       ItemsSource="{Binding OrdersInfo}"> 
            <sfGrid:GridTextColumn MappingName="OrderID" ValueBinding="{Binding OrderID, Mode=TwoWay}"/> 
            <sfGrid:GridTextColumn MappingName="CustomerID" ValueBinding="{Binding CustomerID, Mode=TwoWay}"/> 
            <sfGrid:GridTextColumn MappingName="Freight" ValueBinding="{Binding Freight, Mode=TwoWay}"/>
