Help to identify problem RadzenDataGrid

i am trying to find a cause of a problem but not sure what to look for
i have a page with a grid that i need to use inline edit to add a row to a table.
i start the edit with a button that creates a new object and starts the grid to edit the new row.
but before i can save the row something cuases an sql query to happen and the grid goes back to zero rows and the app cant finish.
the back end data is from ms sql server via an ef model.

on the web page i just move to the next control a text box to enter a value, no validation has been added yet so thats not it.

is there anything in the data grid that might be firing a query ?
or is it possibly ef tracking that is doing it ?

i do not get any thrown exception!

just a bad state in the application.
