Clicking on grid detail expander icon while another cell is in edit mode puts the row with the expander icon in edit mode

We are using the detail section of the grid to show additional information which means that the expand/collapse icon is in the first cell.

Our problem is that if the user has a cell that is in edit mode, clicking on the detail expander will actually put the associated cell into edit mode.

We have looked at all of the various events, such as cell clicking, and nothing is fired in a way that will allow us to detect that the user clicked on the expander and not on the cell contents.

This is a fairly important usability issue for our end users since it requires them to know that they have to exit edit mode before they can expand the details.

    In the meantime, I have prepared a small sample with a workaround solution. It consists of retrieving the last cell that has entered edit mode in the cellEditEnter event and in the onRowToggle event checking if its column is the one, containing the expandable cells, and if so – setting the edit mode of the edited cell to false. Please, keep in mind that the suggested approach is a workaround and may not be applicable to all scenarios as it is not fully tested.


    If you require any further assistance on the matter, please let me know.


    Best regards,
