How to trigger SelectionChanged from GridMultiColumnDropDownList

Hi team,,

I am using GridMultiColumnDropDownList inside sfDataGrid in my application along the lines of MVVM.
I am trying to make use of EventTriggers with EventName = "SelectionChanged" inside GridMultiColumnDropDownList and capture the command on the VM, so that i can do some other implementations.

I observe the SelectionChanged does not get fired when I change the selection.

Similar implementation for SfMultiColumnDropDown works though.

I have attached a sample with similar code for reference. Please let me know how to acheive the SelectionChanged event for GridMultiColumnDropDownList .
Feel free to make modifications for the attached sample, incase it helps.

Srikanth V.

Hi Srikanth, 
Thank you for your patience. 
We have checked your reported scenario. You are tried to access the SelectionChanged event for MultiColumnDropDownList column, but it doesn’t have that event. You need to call the  SfDataGrid.CurrentCellDropDownSelectionChanged event and  declare the event trigger after define columns. Please refer the below code snippet. 
<syncfusion:SfDataGrid x:Name="dataGrid" Margin="20" 
                        AllowEditing="True"  SelectionUnit="Cell" 
                        ItemsSource="{Binding OrderList}"                                
                        IsEnabled="{Binding IsObsScreenEnabled}" Grid.Row="1" 
                        HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" ColumnSizer="None"  EnableDataVirtualization="False"   
                        SelectedItem="{Binding Order,UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged}" 
                        GridCopyOption="CopyData" SelectionMode="Extended"  EditTrigger="OnTap" 
                        GridPasteOption="PasteData" AllowDrop="True" 
                        AllowResizingColumns="True" ScrollMode="Async" AllowFiltering="True" AllowSorting="False"  
                        CanUseViewFilter="True" > 
         <syncfusion:GridTextColumn MappingName="ProductName" /> 
         <syncfusion:GridTextColumn MappingName="ProductId" /> 
         <!--SelectionChanged gets DOES NOT fired from here--> 
         <syncfusion:GridMultiColumnDropDownList x:Name="cmbCountry"                                                 
                                                 ItemsSource="{Binding DataContext.Shipcities, RelativeSource={RelativeSource Mode=FindAncestor, AncestorType={x:Type Window}, AncestorLevel=1}}"   
         <i:EventTrigger EventName="CurrentCellDropDownSelectionChanged"> 
             <i:InvokeCommandAction Command="{Binding DataContext.CountryChangedCommand, RelativeSource={RelativeSource Mode=FindAncestor, AncestorType={x:Type syncfusion:SfDataGrid}, AncestorLevel=1}}" />
