Proper way to commit a Template-driven Forms based editor?

Asked On December 5, 2019 07:07 PM UTC


I've created a sample based loosely on the documentation for Template-driven Forms.

The editor works as expected if you click to edit, make changes, then hit the Enter key to commit your changes.
However, I want to also commit the changes if the user clicks outside the grid (grid loses focus).
I added an input element at the top of the sample page that can be clicked to steal focus.

Basically I'm looking for the 'actionOnBlur' property of the InPlaceEditor component, but for a Template based Grid editor.

Also, if there is a more preferred way to write the html for the ng-template editor, I'd like some feedback on that as well.

Hi Earl, 
You can achieve your requirement – “Save edit changes on focusing the input element rendered outside the grid” by binding focus event to this element and calling the grid’s endEdit method if it is in edit state. This is demonstrated in below code snippet, 
<input type='text' size='25' name='shiftFocus' (focus)='onFocus()' placeholder='click-here-to-steal-focus' /> 
public onFocus() { 
    // Check is the grid is in edit state 
    if (this.grid.isEdit) { 
        // Saves the record 
For your reference we have modified the sample you provided based on this. You can find it below, 
Please get back to us if you have any further queries.
