Update Adjacent Cells in Grid Rows while in Inline Edit Mode

My Grid has a ProductName field and is in the inline edit mode. When I change the value of the ProductName field, the Model is not updated and the change is not reflected in the affected row cells.

How can I update the Model and, respectively, the row cells which correspond to the value I provide to the ProductName field when the Grid is in its inline editing mode?


To update the value of the Grid cells in an inline edit row mode when another field in the same row changes and while having the new value reflected still in edit mode:

  1. Subscribe to the change event of the data source.
  2. When the event is triggered, check if its action corresponds to itemchange and its field to the one you choose.
  3. If both conditions are met, get the DataItem of the row that is edited and update it by using the set method, which will propagate the changes in the GUI.
<div id="example">
  <div id="grid"></div>

    $(document).ready(function () {
      var crudServiceBaseUrl = "",

          read:  {
            url: crudServiceBaseUrl + "/Products",
            dataType: "jsonp"
          update: {

            if (operation !== "read" && options.models) {
              return {models: kendo.stringify(options.models)};
