Multiline edit and save all on grid edit

As we are porting many of our applications from Telerik MVC to Blazor, our clients are complaining about particular features no longer being available.


One of which is the multiline edit for incell edit that is available in Telerik-MVC.


This feature is nice as it allows the grid to have a very "excel - like" feel to it, with a small triangle in the corner to indicate the cell/view-model has been edited.


As is, the user is forced to edit the data line-by-line, and save per line.

In real client work, data is not necessarily modified in this linear/per-row fashion.


Take for example, a client has a list of delivery dates which need to be updated down 1 column, current functionality is painful, as you need to edit 1 date, click save, then move onto the next row instead of just moving down the rows and clicking save after you have finished your edits (like you can with Telerik MVC grid).


My rationale for this feature add: The "big data" age is upon us - and blazor is very well suited for these types of applications being strongly typed/c# etc; would be great to see Telerik lead in rich data input components for data heavy applications, and the grid is the most core UI component hence should be the most feature rich and performant.

Hi Philip,

The InCell editing accomplishes most of that - per-cell updates are already available: https://demos.telerik.com/blazor-ui/grid/editing-incell. There are also various improvements for this mode coming up such as default focus for the input in the cell when it opens and enhanced keyboard support for faster navigation between cells.

What you describe with the red triangle looks like batch editing, and you can Follow that here: https://feedback.telerik.com/blazor/1428492-batch-editing. I've added your Vote to it and linked at the top the sample project that showcases how you could batch operations.

Thus, I am marking this as a duplicate of the batch editing request.
