ObservableCollection and INotifyPropertyChanged - does it work for live updates ?

I am looking at the ObservableCollection example for the grid.

I modify the code for an example item in ObservableBinding.razor to be like so below such that every 5 seconds CustomerID is updated triggering INotifyPropertyChanged. The CustomerID on the grid does not update in real-time.

Should it ? Or have I misunderstood ?


  public class ObservableDatas : INotifyPropertyChanged
        public ObservableDatas() {


        async void DoARun()

                CustomerID = DateTime.UtcNow.ToString("yyyyMMddHHmmssFFF");

            catch (Exception ex)


            await Task.Delay(5000);

            Task.Run(() => { DoARun(); });


        public int OrderID { get; set; }
        private string customerID { get; set; }
        public string CustomerID
            get { return customerID; }
                this.customerID = value;

Hi Paul, 

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 

Based on your requirement, we have prepared a sample to perform Live update in Grid. Please download the sample from the link below, 
In the above sample, we have bound Observable collection as data to Grid, and updated the cell value with a delay of 100ms, once “Update Data” button is clicked. 
Please find the video demo from the link below, 

Please get back to us if you need further assistance.
