The possibilities for achieving the desired behavior vary depending on the specific Grid configuration in the discussed custom scenario.
For example, if the Grid is in "incell" (the default) editing mode, and the autoSync option of the dataSource is set to true (the default is false), you can use some custom logic or event handler to call the Grid's saveChanges()
method (similar setting is available in this online demo
Can you please describe the requirements in further detail, as well as send us an isolated runnable project, similar to the one in the discussed online demo, so we can inspect it, and provide more to-the-point suggestions, if the desired functionality is supported.
Thank you in advance.
