Trigger CurrentCellEndEdit with ok/commit button (virtual keyboard)

Hello there,

we have the following problem with our Android app (Xamarin.Forms.Android):
We have a SfDataGrid with an editable numeric column. The user can change the value of a cell, immediately after that a webservice request saves the changed value.

When we press the ok button on the virtual keyboard, the CurrentCellEndEdit-Event is not triggered and the request does not fire.
The user has to change to current selection (e.g. change the selected row) to the trigger the event.

Components like SfComboBox have a completed event which is triggered by pressing the commit button of the virtual keyboard. Is there a similar way to reproduce this behaviour in SfDataGrid?

Hi Maria,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 

Currently, we don’t have support for your requirement but we have workaround to achieve your requirement by overriding the GridCellNumericRenderer of SfDataGrid. We have prepared sample for the same. In that sample OrderID column is an only GridNumericColumn.

using Syncfusion.SfDataGrid.XForms.Renderers;
partial class MainPage : ContentPage 
   public MainPage() 
    dataGrid.CellRenderers.Add("Numeric", new customNumericRenderer());


public class customNumericRenderer : GridCellNumericRenderer 
        public customNumericRenderer() 
        protected override SfNumericTextBoxExt OnCreateEditUIView() 
            var view = new NumericTextBox(); 
            return view; 

public class NumericTextBox : SfNumericTextBoxExt 
        /// <summary> 
        /// Initializes a new instance of the <see cref="NumericTextBoxView"/> class. 
        /// </summary>  
        public NumericTextBox() 
            this.Completed += NumericTextBox_Completed;   
        private void NumericTextBox_Completed(object sender, EventArgs e) 
            // you can write business logic here 

We hope this helps, please let us know if  need further assistance from us.

Thank you very much, the solution works!

I raised the Datagrid.EndEdit() void inside the NumericTextbox_Completed-Event to trigger the CurrentCellEndEdit-Event. Works fine!
