    We need to update the source when property changed,

    The source object update only when the cell edit ended.

    Is there way to do this?

    Best regards

    Hi Ehud Pinchas,

    The default,  the gird does not allow you to do that but you can force it to use such kind of binding by providing a custom edit template. For example:

    <telerik:GridViewDataColumn DataMemberBinding="{Binding Name}">
                <TextBox Text="{Binding Name, UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged}"/>

    Keep in mind that this will bypass our built-in editing logic. 

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team

    What editing logic do I lose?  How can I get it back, but still update PropertyChanged?

    The editing should work fine with a predefined edit template. The case is that by default the editing and validation mechanism of RadGridView explicitly updates and validates values when the edit is over. In your case as you have set UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged, validation and updating the value would happen on every key stroke. This is the main difference.

    You can also check the source code of the GridViewDataColumn and GridViewBoundColumnBase to know everything we do to configure the default editor (i.e. TextBox for string values).
