How to use DropDownList and Combo-Box in Batch-edit mode of Angular Grid


I am using angular grid in my angular 8 project.

Can you guide me how to use ejs-combobox or ejs-dropdownlist in batch-edit mode so that I can manage text and value properties in drop-down.

Hi Sandip , 

Query : How to use ejs-Dropdownlist in Batch-edit mode. 

For dropdown type edit in Batch editing we have an inbuild support and to access this you need to add “editType=’dropdownedit’”  while defining the columns.  

But in the query you have mentioned that you need to manage text and value properties in drop-down. For this we suggest to use the cell edit template method. The cell edit template is used to add a custom component for a particular column 

Please refer the code snippet and sample. 


import { Component, OnInit, ViewChild } from "@angular/core"; 
import { orderDataSource } from "./data"; 
import { DropDownList } from "@syncfusion/ej2-dropdowns"; 
import { Button } from "@syncfusion/ej2-buttons"; 

  selector: "app-root", 
  template: ` <ejs-grid #grid [dataSource]='data' allowPaging='true' [pageSettings]='pageSettings' [editSettings]='editSettings' [toolbar]='toolbar'> 
            <e-column field='ShipCity' headerText='Ship City' width='150' [edit]='shipCityEditParams'></e-column> 
export class AppComponent { 
  @ViewChild("grid", { static: true }) gridObj: GridComponent; 
  public dropDataSource = [ 
    { text: "Köln", value: 1 }, 

  public ngOnInit(): void { 
    this.data = orderDataSource; 
    this.editSettings = {allowEditing: true, allowAdding: true,allowDeleting: true, mode: "Batch"}; 
    this.toolbar = ["Add", "Edit", "Delete", "Cancel", "Update"]; 
    this.shipCityEditParams = { 
            create: () => { 
                this.elem1 = document.createElement('input'); 
                return this.elem1; 
            read: () => { 
                return this.dropObj.text; 
            destroy: () => { 
            write: (args: { rowData: object, column: Column }) => { 
                this.dropObj = new DropDownList({ 
                    dataSource: this.dropDataSource, 
                    text: args.rowData[args.column.field], 
                    fields: { text: 'text', value: 'value' }, 
                    floatLabelType: 'Never' 

For combo box editingCode snippet 

import { comboBox } from "@syncfusion/ej2-dropdowns"; 

public comboData = ['Kevzara', 'Dupixent-AD', 'Dupixent', 'Dupixent AD','Kevaza’]; 

function write(args) { 
        dObj = new ej.dropdowns.ComboBox({ 
            dataSource: comboData, 
            allowFiltering: true,    //enable filtering 
            value: args.rowData[args.column.field]
