I have created an editable summary cell. The summary is of type Int32Aggregate. When a user types a value into the summary cell and then hits ENTER or clicks out of the cell, I want the text in the summary cell to reflect the value that was typed into the cell. Currently the cell reverts back to the summary value. I thought about the following solutions...

1. add a hidden row in the detail section that will assume the value typed in to the cell, and then set the real detail cell values to 0.

2. temporarily turn off or supress summarizing

How would you do it?

Hi Eric,

You can handle the QueryCellStyleInfo event to set the Style property of the summary cell to make as a editable cell. See the below code snippet for more details.

if(e.TableCellIdentity.TableCellType==GridTableCellType.SummaryEmptyCell || e.TableCellIdentity.TableCellType==GridTableCellType.SummaryFieldCell)

e.Style.CellType = "TextBox";
e.Style.BackColor = Color.White

//By default Enable property of summary to False.
//you need to change the Enabled property to True.
e.Style.Enabled = true;

//By default ReadOnly property of summary to True.
//you need to change the ReadOnly property to False.
e.Style.ReadOnly = false;


Update the summary using HashTable : http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/user/uploads/GGCSummary_420bb09d.zip

Update the summary using Last record : http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/user/uploads/LastrecUpdateSummaryNavigate_9b080d29.zip

Hi Harshad,

Try setting the CurrentRecord to null for summary cell in the TableControlCurrentCellStartEditing event of the grid. See if this helps

private void gridGroupingControl1_TableControlCurrentCellStartEditing(object sender, GridTableControlCancelEventArgs e)
GridCurrentCell cc = e.TableControl.CurrentCell;
GridTableCellStyleInfo style = cc.Renderer.CurrentStyle as GridTableCellStyleInfo;
Element el = style.TableCellIdentity.DisplayElement;

if( el.Kind == DisplayElementKind.Summary )
e.TableControl.Table.CurrentRecord = null;

Please refer to the attached sample for implementation.

Best regards,

I'd like to gain access to the sample above, as I'm facing the same issue.

Thank you.
