In the Telerik documentation, the word "changed" is used ambiguously which results in a lack of clarity and concision. Here's an example of what I mean. What does the following (hypothetical) sentence mean?
THE ROW HAS CHANGED.
Does it mean that focus has moved to a different row? Or that the row has been modified?
How about the following event name:
Does it mean we are moving to a different row or that the row is undergoing modification?
It is difficult to know which meaning is intended; either meaning can make sense in context. In Windows control programming, we are working with a GUI paradigm where events can be triggered by focus moving elsewhere, but we are also working with an object-oriented paradigm where events are triggered when the underlying data objects undergo modification. So it is very important to have clarity when speaking about "change" as it relates to data-driven GUI controls, where these two paradigms coincide.
