c1gridview clientside edit update

    I was wondering if there is a way to automatically trigger the _RowUpdating event on serverside once a cell is edited.  Currently in the clientside edit mode c1gridview waits until another row clicked or the row being edited has lost focus before triggering the server side c1grid_RowUpdating event.

    Should I look towards triggering the onAfterCellEdit(grid, args) function somehow? How do I get the args to pass to it?

    If I manually trigger it via the __doPostBack(...) method, proper C1GridViewRowEventArgs are sent to the server side.

    I meant to say __doPostBack(...) method DOES NOT sent proper C1GridViewRowEventArgs

    still searching for a way to trigger an update after a c1gridview cell is edited using clientside edit mode ....  a pencil icon shows up in the first column but it does nothing!

    basically looking for a way for a user to accept or cancel changes just as if row was put into edit mode  ( except that i'm using clientside edit)   ...  is there a client side function for updating the c1gridview that can be called via javascript?

    You should use update() to send client-side changes to server in client editing mode (AllowClientEditing = true). However you can't call it from editing event handlers since it causes recusrion and stack overflow.

    You can make a separate "Update" button:

    <input type="button" onclick="updateBtnClick()" value="update" />

    function updateBtnClick() {



    alternatevely you can call update on time intervals from afterCellUpdate afterCellEdit event handlers:

    function onAfterCellUpdate() {

      window.setTimeout(function() {


      }, 500);


    but I don't like the last option.

    Thanks for replying.

    after calling   $find("C1GridView1").update();  

    is it possible to refresh the grid if it is in callback mode?

    reason being:

    I have two columns that use grouping feature ie:

    <GroupInfo HeaderText="{0}" OutlineMode="StartCollapsed" Position="Header"> </GroupInfo>

    when I update a column which is grouped ... a row needs to change its positioning from one group to another

    ie: if the rows are grouped by location: changing a row from "north" location to "south" should move the row to its proper grouping

    .update() method works properly for Internet Explorer 8

    after .update() in Firefox 3.6 edited row does not move to its proper grouping and and the spinner icon stays on the screen (pencil icon does disappear ...so the edit seems to be completed)

    is there a client side grid refresh that can be called? or callback options that I can set to refresh data properly?

    I've even tried placing C1.Web.UI.Controls.C1GridView.CallbackMode.full in the javascript function before calling .update().. .but it doesn't change the outcome.

    Any suggestions?
