    Is there a way to use inline edit when creating a new row, and incell edit for all other editing? I want to use incell editing without batch editing so that changes are immediately written back to the server, but when a new record is created, it gets committed to the db as soon as you click from the first field to the second, which leaves a scenario where there is a record with only part of the data. I can stop this from getting committed on the backend, but then there is no visual cue for the user that the row was not committed.

    Hello kyle,

    I am afraid that mixing both edit modes is not possible with the Kendo UI Grid. What I can suggest is to have incell edit mode set for the grid, but implementing the actual "add row" functionality with custom code. For example you can have a few input fields outside the grid and when user is done populating these input fields to use the add method of the Kendo UI DataSource to add an object to the grid's data. The object added to the DataSource should contain the values typed in the input fields.
