How can I catch events from an extra section?

i have a few editable text box and combo box fields in my extra section which affect all other rows in the grid, and i want to catch when the user types/selects things in this extra section.

i have tried to use TableControlCellValidating event, but when i call currentcell.endEdit(), to stop editing mode, i go into an infinite loop becuase CellValidating is called again.

RecordValueChanging does not invoke the event when editing the extra section cells.

Hi Mitul,

Try handling the TableControlCurrentCellChanged event to the current cell changes in grid. Please try the suggestion and let me know if this helps.

Best regards,

Hi, this solution doesn't work. The event is not being fired for the extra section editing. Please help.

Hi Mitul,

You could try handling TableControlCurrentCellChanged event and check for the ExtraSection to catch the changes.

private void gridGroupingControl1_TableControlCurrentCellChanged(object sender, Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.Grouping.GridTableControlEventArgs e)
Syncfusion.Grouping.Element element = e.TableControl.Table.DisplayElements[e.TableControl.CurrentCell.RowIndex];
if(element is ExtraSection)

Here is a small sample:

Kindly let us know if this helps.

Best Regards,
