I am not sure if I understand the issue with the code-library. The Grid data is send to the server along with the form fields and you can save it in the Save action. Could you clarify a bit?
The other option that you have described is also possible. You could call the sync method to save the changes from the Grid dataSource and then post the form in the DataSource sync event.
