    I need to access the multiple values in multiselect ComboBox located in a a grid cell once the cell edit has been completed.

    I am trying to access the ComboBox multiple values using the script:

    ‘var items = editor.jqxComboBox(“getSelectedItems”);

    inside the function

    
    { ..., cellendedit: function (row, datafield, columntype, oldvalue, newvalue) 
    {
       'var items = editor.jqxComboBox("getSelectedItems");
    
    }

    but I cannot get the values for items returned. I suspect this happens because the editor has been closed.

    Any ideas on how I can access the ‘items’ when an edit cycle has been completed, will be really valued!

    Hi alastairwalker,

    You cannot access Grid editors in that event. You can access values in geteditorvalue callback, but if you implement it, you will have to implement what the editor returns, too.

    By following up your suggestion, I have assembled the following script:

    geteditorvalue: function (row, cellvalue, editor) 
    {
    	var items = editor.jqxComboBox("getSelectedItems");
    	checkedItems = [];
    	jQuery.each(items, function (index)
    	{
    		checkedItems.push(this.label);
    	});
    	var currentValue = checkedItems.join();
    }

    Now what is not clear to me is how to return (i.e. save) the currentValue back into the grid cell.

    I tried ‘return currentValue;’ but this does not yield the correct (or any) result.

    (Also, clicking on a different cell does not seem to close the editor. How does the editor close?)

    Am I missing something here?

    Any guidance on how to save the currentValue in the grid cell will be appreciated!
