How to save changes immediately after editing a cell in batchediting?

Platform: jQuery |
Control: ejGrid


We can save the changes of single cell edited value instead of saving the entire batch changes, when batch editing is enabled. In cellEdit event, we can get the batch changes and using “batchSave” method the edited single cell value get saved.

The following code example demonstrates how to save the changes in each cell immediately without saving the entire batch change.

1. Render the Grid control with cellEdit event.










.Net core








In the cellEdit event, we can get the batch changes(i.e. changes made on the each cell) by using “getBatchChanges” method and finally save the each cell records in the “batchSave” method.

hello, can you give examples with blazor

I got this example working, but I've found that when you call batchSave(), it clear's the current cell selection. Is there a way around this?

For example, typically you press enter after editing a cell and it selects the cell below. However, when running this example, it breaks that and keeps the current selection.

Should I create a new issue?

Hi Joe,

Greetings from Syncfusion Support.

Using editCell and selectCells method of ejGrid we have achieved your requirement(i.e. make the cell editable while clicking the enter key). Kindly refer to the below code example,

        $(function () {
             columns: [

    var flag = true, enterKey = false;

    $('#Grid').keydown(function(e){ // use your grid ID
         if (e.key == 'Enter') {
              enterKey = true; 
    function cellEdit(args) {
        if (flag) {
            args.cancel = true;
            if ($.inArray(args.rowData, this.batchChanges.changed) == -1)
            var batchData = this.getBatchChanges();
            if (batchData.changed.length > 0 && !$(args.cell).closest("tr").hasClass("e-insertedrow")) {
                    flag = false;
                    var rowIndex = args.row[0].rowIndex,
 columnIndex = this.getColumnIndexByField(args.columnName); //get the row and column index using cellEdit args before batchSave.
                    if (enterKey) { // continue the cell editing if enter key is pressed.
                        if (rowIndex == this.getRows().length) {
                        !this._enableCheckSelect && this.selectRows(rowIndex);
                        if (columnIndex != -1) {
                           this.editCell(rowIndex, args.columnName); 
// editCell method, pass rowindex and field name
                           this.selectCells([[rowIndex, columnIndex]]);
 // selectCells method, pass rowindex and column index
                           enterKey = false;
                flag = false;
            flag = true;
