Prevent Grid Popup Editor from Closing on Update and Create

Environment

Product Progress Kendo UI Grid
Progress Kendo UI version 2020.3.1021

Description

How can I keep the popup editor of the Grid open after I update or insert a record?

Solution

  1. Handle the edit event of the Grid and attach an event handler for the close event of the Popup window.
  2. In the close handler, the e.preventDefault() method will be called to prevent the popup from closing.
  3. To allow the user to close the editor, set the flag when the Cancel and Close buttons are clicked.
<div id="grid"></div>

<script>
    var preventCloseOnSave = false;

    $(document).ready(function () {
        var crudServiceBaseUrl = "https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/service",
            dataSource = new kendo.data.DataSource({
                transport: {
                    read: {
                        url: crudServiceBaseUrl + "/Products",
                        dataType: "jsonp"
                    },
                    update: {
                        url: crudServiceBaseUrl + "/Products/Update",
                        dataType: "jsonp"
