Editing values n the Grid


Is there a celledit template so we can edit and track the changes in the viewmodel? Place an Entry control for example in the template and then subscribe to the Text changed event.  I am trying to get it to to work in cell template and it is not working.




                                                            Margin="{OnPlatform WinUI='0,16,0,15',









                                                            VerticalOptions="Center" />










                                                            Text="{Binding OrderQty, Mode=TwoWay}" />

Hi Abdul, 

We have prepared sample based on provided code snippets. The TextChanged event triggered whenever the text is changed. We have attached the tested sample and video for your reference.

Thanks for the reply. There was no problem with the Text event triggering , however the value passed in 'e' is only the Text , oldvalue and newvalue. I want to see the row as well which was edited. Without that there is no reference to the row that was edited that can be then updated in the view model.

I also tried saving the selected row in the vm as

private void dataGrid_SelectionChanged(object sender, Syncfusion.Maui.DataGrid.DataGridSelectionChangedEventArgs e)


        vm.SelectedInvoiceItem = (InvoiceItem)e.AddedRows[0];


then update that reference in the Qty_Changed event. For that to work, the row has to be selected first. If not the incorrect row is updated.

I see that the grid in maui is not supporting "Editing" as in xamarin yet. When it supports then I can get the functionality that I am expecting. Till then I will use a workaround/

The edited row details can be obtained from the Entry's BindingContext on its TextChanged event. Refer to the below code snippet for the same. Code snippet :

private void Entry_TextChanged(object sender, TextChangedEventArgs e)
            var currentRow = (sender as Entry).BindingContext;

I today tested the attached demo-project in the zip-file with Maui-DataGrid V 21.1.41.

With that approach I cannot enter text on an IPad - the virtual keyboard is shortly visible, but then disappears directly.

Even an a Mac, I have to select the entry-field twice to be able to enter text.
