Single Click Editing with Batch Mode in Blazor DataGrid Component

17 Nov 20233 minutes to read

You can make a cell editable on a single click with a Batch mode of editing in DataGrid by using the EditCell method.

Set the Mode property of GridSelectionSettings component to Both and bind the CellSelected event to DataGrid. In the CellSelected event handler, call the EditCell method based on the clicked cell.

This is demonstrated in the following sample code,

@using Syncfusion.Blazor.Grids

<SfGrid @ref="GridInstance" AllowPaging="true" DataSource="@Orders" Toolbar="@(new List<string>() { "Cancel", "Update" })">
    <GridSelectionSettings Mode="Syncfusion.Blazor.Grids.SelectionMode.Both"></GridSelectionSettings>
    <GridEditSettings AllowEditing="true" Mode="EditMode.Batch"></GridEditSettings>
    <GridEvents CellSelected="CellSelectHandler" TValue="Order"></GridEvents>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(Order.OrderID) HeaderText="Order ID" IsPrimaryKey="true"  TextAlign="TextAlign.Right" Width="120"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(Order.CustomerID) HeaderText="Customer Name" Width="120"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(Order.OrderDate) HeaderText=" Order Date" EditType="EditType.DatePickerEdit" Format="d" TextAlign="TextAlign.Right" Width="130" Type="ColumnType.Date"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(Order.Freight) HeaderText="Freight" Format="C2" TextAlign="TextAlign.Right" EditType="EditType.NumericEdit" Width="120"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(Order.ShipCountry) HeaderText="Ship Country" EditType="EditType.DropDownEdit" Width="150"></GridColumn>

    SfGrid<Order> GridInstance { 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 = 2.1 * x,
            OrderDate = DateTime.Now.AddDays(-x),
            ShipCountry = (new string[] { "USA", "UK", "CHINA", "RUSSIA", "INDIA" })[new Random().Next(5)]
    public async Task CellSelectHandler(CellSelectEventArgs<Order> args)
        //get selected cell index
        var CellIndexes = await GridInstance.GetSelectedRowCellIndexes();

        //get the row and cell index
        var CurrentEditRowIndex = CellIndexes[0].Item1;
        var CurrentEditCellIndex = (int)CellIndexes[0].Item2;

        //get the available fields
        var fields = await GridInstance.GetColumnFieldNames();
        // edit the selected cell using the cell index and column name
        await GridInstance.EditCell(CurrentEditRowIndex, fields[CurrentEditCellIndex]);
    public List<Order> Orders { get; set; }
    public class Order {
        public int? OrderID { get; set; }
        public string CustomerID { get; set; }
        public DateTime? OrderDate { get; set; }
        public double? Freight { get; set; }
        public string ShipCountry { get; set; }
