The DataGrid provides a built-in editing functionality, which allows the app users to easily edit the data presented in the Grid. Depending on the column data type, a relevant editor allows end users to edit content in a friendly environment. As soon as the user double-clicks on a certain cell, the cell is switched to an edit mode.
You need to define the
UserEditMode property of the DataGrid control to enable the editing feature.
UserEditMode property is of type
Telerik.XamarinForms.DataGrid.DataGridUserEditMode and accepts the following values:
None—Editing is disabled.
Cell—Enables the editing option.
In addition, you can independently disable editing for specific columns through the
CanUserEdit property of the
DataGridColumn class. For more details, refer to the Columns Overview topic.
Each DataGrid column type provides different editor, so that the content can be edited in a convenient manner according to its value type.
The following table lists the related .NET MAUI control for editing the values inside the DataGrid columns:

If the default editors do not suit the scenario you have, create a custom editor for each column by utilizing the
CellEditTemplate property of the
DataGridColumn. For detailed information on how the
CellEditTemplate can be applied, refer to the Columns Cell Templates article.
The DataGrid provides a few useful commands related to the editing functionality, such as:
BeginEdit—Provides an entry point just before the editing begins.
CancelEdit—Provides an entry point just before the editing is canceled.
CommitEdit—Provides an entry point just before the editing is committed.
For detailed information on how to utilize any of the listed commands, go to the Editing Commands topic.
You can change the visual appearance of each editor through the
CellEditorStyle property of the
DataGridColumn. To the
CellEditorStyle you will need to apply a
Xamarin.Forms.Style with a
TargetType set to the corresponding to each column editor control.
The following snippet shows a
CellEditorStyle applied to the
<telerik:DataGridTextColumn.CellEditorStyle> <Style TargetType="Entry"> <Setter Property="FontSize" Value="Large"/> <Setter Property="FontAttributes" Value="Bold"/> </Style> </telerik:DataGridTextColumn.CellEditorStyle>
