Hi Shahid,

Thank you for reaching out to Syncfusion support.

Query 1: When I click on toolbar add button It will populate new row to add record I want to add button in newly added row along with textbox.

Based on your requirement, you want to add custom component on adding a new record to the Grid. You can achieve this by using editTemplate feature of the Gird.

editTemplate: https://ej2.syncfusion.com/angular/documentation/grid/editing/edit-types/#using-template










        ><ng-template #editTemplate let-data>




            placeholder="{{ data.Freight }}"


          <button><i></i></button> </ng-template



We have prepared a simple sample for your reference. you can get it from the below link,

Thank you so much for your response

My 2nd Question was I do not  want to allow edit / add a particular column  show in the attachment it should be empty 

VB Vinitha Balasubramanian Syncfusion Team January 20, 2023 09:18 AM UTC

We understand that you want to remove editing and adding for a particular column. You can do this by setting the 'allowEditing' property to 'false' for that particular column. This way, you'll be able to edit the other columns while keeping that specific column read-only. We've included a sample code and documentation for your reference.




        headerText="Customer ID"


        [allowEditing]="false"                  // set allowEditing to false to remove editing for a particular column

Query 1: To save Batch data save by using external button

We have prepared a sample to update the changed data using external button click. Please refer the code and sample for your reference.


<button (click)="save()">Save</button>



save(args) {

    this.grid.editModule.batchSave();                    // to save the edited values using batchSave method


Sample : https://stackblitz.com/edit/angular-cbiefe-kisxue?file=src%2Fapp.component.ts

Query 2: To show Popup/ dialog when click on the button

In batch edit mode, when you double-click on a grid cell, the target cell changes to an edit state. You can save multiple changes (added, changed and deleted data) in a single request to the data source by clicking on the toolbar's Update button or by externally invoking the batchSave method. Additionally, when you perform an edit action, the grid will automatically focus out of the edited cell and update the changes at the UI level whenever you move out of the edited cell.

In your case, you are using an editTemplate with an input field and a button to perform the edit action. When you click on the button, it shows a modal dialog. However, when the modal dialog gets focus, the grid automatically loses focus and tries to update the changes. This causes the modal dialog to close, as the button is rendered inside the cell, which is the default behavior of the batch edit mode. This is the root cause of the problem.

To resolve this issue, please provide us with a more detailed description of your exact requirements.

For your requirement, instead of using batch edit mode, we suggest using inline edit mode as it is a better option. We can proceed with this implementation once we have your confirmation.

Note : in normal edit mode, when you start editing, the currently selected record changes to an edit state, allowing you to change the cell values and save the edited data to the data source. However, it does not support bulk editing.
