Hello, we've got a grid where we want to display the whitespace that the user has input.

Currently the grid is trimming the whitespace when the user saves (or cancels an edit) of a cell that has leading whitespace.
Is there an option to disable this trim?

I've attached a gif of the current behaviour.

Hi Robert,  
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support. 
By default, wrapping will not be applied to the Grid. Henceforth, the Grid content will trim the leading white-spaces. To overcome this, we must customize the Grid cells by white-space CSS property. We have included the cssClass property to add this customization as shown in the following code example.  
              .e-grid.noWrap .e-rowcell { 
                     white-space: pre-wrap !important; 
     <div id="Grid"></div> 
    <script type="text/javascript"> 
        $(function () { 
                dataSource: window.gridData, 
                allowPaging: true, 
                cssClass: "noWrap", 
                editSettings: { allowEditing: true, allowAdding: true, allowDeleting: true }, 
                  .. .  
                      . . . 
Refer to the following API References.  
We have prepared a sample demo.
