Prevent Default Datagrid Action in Blazor DataGrid Component

9 Oct 20232 minutes to read

The default DataGrid actions can be prevented by canceling them in the OnActionBegin event.

This is demonstrated in the following sample code, where the Add operation is prevented by setting Cancel argument value of the OnActionBegin event to false,

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Grids

<SfGrid DataSource="@Orders" Toolbar="@(new List<string>() { "Add", "Delete", "Edit","Update", "Cancel" })" AllowPaging="true">
    <GridEvents OnActionBegin="OnActionBegin" TValue="Order"></GridEvents>
    <GridEditSettings AllowAdding="true" AllowEditing="true" AllowDeleting="true"></GridEditSettings>
    <GridPageSettings PageSize="8"></GridPageSettings>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(Order.OrderID) HeaderText="Order ID" IsPrimaryKey="true" TextAlign="TextAlign.Right" Width="120"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(Order.CustomerID) HeaderText="Customer Name" TextAlign="TextAlign.Right" Width="120"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(Order.OrderDate) HeaderText=" Order Date" Format="d" Type=ColumnType.Date TextAlign="TextAlign.Right" Width="120"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(Order.Freight) HeaderText="Freight" Format="C2" TextAlign="TextAlign.Right" Width="120"></GridColumn>

    public List<Order> Orders { get; set; }

    protected override void OnInitialized()
        Orders = Enumerable.Range(1, 75).Select(x => new Order()
            OrderID = 1000 + x,
            CustomerID = (new string[] { "ALFKI", "ANANTR", "ANTON", "BLONP", "BOLID" })[new Random().Next(5)],
            Freight = 12 * x,
            OrderDate = DateTime.Now.AddDays(-x),
    public class Order
        public int? OrderID { get; set; }
        public string CustomerID { get; set; }
        public DateTime? OrderDate { get; set; }
        public double? Freight { get; set; }

    public void OnActionBegin(ActionEventArgs<Order> args)
        if (args.RequestType == Syncfusion.Blazor.Grids.Action.Add)
            args.Cancel = true;
