BeginEdit Command

The BeginEdit command provides an entry point just before the editing begins.

Execution Parameter

The execution parameter is of type EditContext that exposes the following properties:

  • CellInfo—Gets the cell information associated with the operation.
  • TriggerAction—Gets the SourceTriggerAction value that triggered the operation.
  • Parameter—Gets an optional parameter holding additional information associated with the operation.

Custom BeginEdit Command

The following examples show how to create a class that inherits from the DataGridCommand and add it to the Commands collection.

Create a Custom BeginEdit Command

public class CustomBeginEditCommand : DataGridCommand 
    public CustomBeginEditCommand() 
        this.Id = CommandId.BeginEdit; 
    public override bool CanExecute(object parameter) 
        // put your custom logic here 
        return true; 
    public override void Execute(object parameter) 
        var context = parameter as EditContext; 
        // put your custom logic here 
        // Executes the default implementation of this command 
        this.Owner.CommandService.ExecuteDefaultCommand(CommandId.BeginEdit, context); 

Add the Custom Command to the Commands Collection

<Grid xmlns:grid="using:Telerik.UI.Xaml.Controls.Grid"> 
    <grid:RadDataGrid Width="600" Height="460" x:Name="grid" Hold> 
             <local:CustomBeginEditCommand />
