Manually call toolbar update from code

We are using the data grid in react (batch editing) hooked up via a UrlAdapter.  The grid loads and the user can make changes (add/edit/delete) all on the client side.  When the user clicks the Update toolbar button the data is saved properly to the server.  Our requirement has changed in that we want to hide the Update button from the toolbar and perform the update manually from another button click event.  We are not sure how this can be accomplished.  We are also struggling to get a reference to the grid (if this is needed) using the react 18+ functional components.  All of the examples on the website seem to use the older component code style that does not easily translate.

Hi Jeff Voigt,

You can achieve your requirement by removing the “update” button from the grid “toolbar” property. Please refer to the below code example for getting the grid instance and hiding the “update” button dynamically.

var gridInstance;

const hide = () => {

  gridInstance.toolbar = ['Add''Delete''Cancel'];


const update = () => {





<ButtonComponent onClick={hide}>hide</ButtonComponent>

<ButtonComponent onClick={update}>update</ButtonComponent>


  <GridComponent dataSource={data} ref={(grid) => (gridInstance = grid)}

            pageSettings={pageSettings} toolbar={toolbarOptions}

            allowPaging={true} editSettings={editSettings}>

    .  .  .




Please get back to us if you need further assistance.

This works great, however, how can we, in code, know when the method has completed and if there were any errors?  We have to perform further operations after a successful batchSave.
