Property Value

Type Description

The template for command column cells.


Users can employ an inline edit row or invoke a standard or pop-up edit form to edit data in the Grid. The EditMode property specifies the current edit mode.

Declare a DxGridCommandColumn object in the Columns template to display a command column. This column contains the predefined CRUD-related buttons (New, Edit, and Delete).

Blazor Grid Command Column

In EditRow edit mode, the column also displays the Save and Cancel buttons.

Blazor Grid Inline Edit Row


For more information on how to enable data editing, refer to the following topic: Edit Data and Validate Input.

You can define the CellDisplayTemplate to implement custom command elements in cells that correspond to data rows. Use the template’s context parameter to access the CommandColumn and DataItem objects. You can also obtain the Grid object and call the following edit-related methods:

You can also specify the HeaderTemplate to display custom content in the command column header.

The example below creates the Add, Edit, and Delete custom command buttons.

Blazor Grid Editing Custom Command Buttons


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 the NewEnabled, EditEnabled, and DeleteEnabled template parameters to specify the enabled or disabled state for custom command elements.

View Example: Use icons instead of default command buttons View Example: Disable row editing depending on row values
