Custom Editing

The Grid enables you to implement custom column editors and to specify validation rules that apply while the user edits the data.

Implementing Custom Editors

To implement a custom editor in the Grid, specify the editor field of the respective column. The value of this field will point to a JavaScript function which will instantiate the column editor for the corresponding column cells. For a runnable example, refer to the demo on editing with custom editors in the Grid.

Setting Validation Rules

To define a validation rule for the edit operation, configure the validation option in the schema of the data source. For a runnable example, refer to the demo on custom validator editing in the Grid.
