Grid Edit with DropDown


i have a data grid that is editable, some of te columns are dropdown lists.

Now i have declared the edit methods and works fine.

Just how can i get the rowindex of the edited column to update another column of the same row?

I leave here my column declaration:

                    field: 'codeProject', 
                    headerText: 'C.Obra', 
                    cellSave: GridDataCellSave,
                    edit: {
                        create:(args) =>{
                            gridSelectElement = document.createElement('input');
                            return gridSelectElement;
                        read:(args) => {
                            return gridSelectList.value;
                        destroy:() =>{
                        write: (args) => {
                            gridSelectList = new ej.dropdowns.DropDownList(
                                    fields:{value: 'sCodigo', text:'sDesc'}

Thank you in advance for you help.

Regards Miguel

Hi Miguel, 

Greetings from Syncfusion support. 

Based on your query we suspect that you want to get the edited rowIndex when edit a row. You can get the edited rowIndex in  actionComplete event’s argument. 

Refer the below screen shot. 


Please let us know if you need further assistance on this.

Thank you for your information.

What i want to do is after going into edit mode and selecting a item in the dropdown, is to change a value in another column.

The problem that i have right now with your solution is the following, in the actionComplete Event with the Request type Save and action Edit i got no RowID object.

I attached a screenshot, and full declaration of the Grid Box as file.

Hi Miguel, 

We can achieve your requirement using the change event of DropDownList control.  

In the below code example we have modify the CustomerID column value when we change the dropdown value in edit form. 


    var grid = new ej.grids.Grid({ 
        dataSource: window.orderDataSource, 
        editSettings: { allowEditing: true, allowAdding: true, allowDeleting: true, mode: 'Normal', newRowPosition:'Top' }, 
        allowPaging: true, 
        pageSettings: { pageCount: 5 }, 
        toolbar: ['Add', 'Edit', 'Delete', 'Update', 'Cancel'], 
        columns: [ 
                field: 'OrderID', isPrimaryKey: true, headerText: 'Order ID', textAlign: 'Right', 
                validationRules: { required: true, number: true }, width: 140 
                field: 'CustomerID', headerText: 'Customer ID', 
                validationRules: { required: true }, width: 140 
                field: 'Freight', headerText: 'Freight', textAlign: 'Right', editType: 'numericedit', 
                width: 140, format: 'C2', validationRules: { required: true } 
                field: 'OrderDate', headerText: 'Order Date', editType: 'datetimepickeredit', format: { type: 'dateTime', format: 'M/d/y hh:mm a' }, 
                width: 160 
                field: 'ShipCountry', headerText: 'Ship Country', editType: 'dropdownedit', width: 150, 
                edit: { params: { popupHeight: '300px',change:change } } 
    function change(args){ 
      var editColumn = document.getElementById('GridCustomerID'); 
      editColumn.value = "Madhu"; 

We have prepared a simple sample in the following stackblitz link. 

Refer the help documentation.
