    We're using the approach to show a drop down list in the grid row when a user clicks on the cell. In the change event we're changing values in the grid's data source to match a selection made from the drop down list. 

    This all seems to work fine, the grid datasource values are being changed, the only problem is that the grid's save event fires before dropDownList's change event. 
    This is a problem because the grid's dataSource.dataItem values have not been changed yet. 

    Question is: Why would the grid's save event fire before the change event of the dropDownList. More importantly, is there some other event we can bind to on the dropDownList which will happen before the grid's save event is called? 

    The importance here is that the grid's save event is calling a refresh on the grid.

    Hello Jacques,

    The order of the events is slightly different since when there is dropdownlist inside the cell editor template clicking on the DropDownList popup is actually clicking outside of the Grid, since the popup editor is attached to the Body and it is not part of the Grid.

    Here is the order of the events:

    Grid save event

    You can use the select event of the DropDownList.

    Hello, Rajesh,

    When a dropdown is used as a grid editor as the original poster describes, the dropdown list change is fired after the grid save event.

    The dropdown list change event is not fired when you click on another cell or the toolbar as far as I can tell from this test Dojo:

    Can you describe the steps we need to take to reproduce the active dropdown triggering its change event on another cell click or the toolbar save button click?

    Look forward to hearing back from you.

    Kind Regards,
