You can define the CellDisplayTemplate to display custom command elements for cells in display mode. Use the template’s context parameter to access CommandColumn and DataItem objects. The Grid object allows you to access the Grid component and call the following edit-related methods:

Starts editing a new row.
StartEditRowAsync | StartEditDataItemAsync
Start editing the specified row or data item.
ShowRowDeleteConfirmation | ShowDataItemDeleteConfirmation
Display the delete confirmation dialog for the specified row or data item.

Specify the CellEditTemplate to display custom command elements for cells in edit mode. Use HeaderTemplate and FilterRowCellTemplate to display custom content in the command column header and filter row.


Add, Edit, and Delete operations can be temporarily unavailable if you bind the Grid to an asynchronous data source (such as a Server Mode data source or GridDevExtremeDataSource). Use NewEnabled, EditEnabled, and DeleteEnabled template parameters to specify the enabled or disabled state for custom command elements.

The following code snippet displays icons instead of default command buttons:

@page "/"
@using CommandButtonsWithIcons.Data
@inject WeatherForecastService ForecastService

@code {
    string[]? summaries;
    private List<WeatherForecast>? forecasts;
    DxGrid? MyGrid;
    protected override async Task OnInitializedAsync() {
        forecasts = await ForecastService.GetForecastAsync();
        summaries = ForecastService.Summaries;
    async Task OnEditModelSaving(GridEditModelSavingEventArgs e) {
        forecasts = await ForecastService.ChangeForecastAsync((WeatherForecast)e.EditModel);
    async Task OnDataItemDeleting(GridDataItemDeletingEventArgs e) {
        if (e.DataItem != null)
            await ForecastService.Remove((WeatherForecast)e.DataItem);
