Whoaa! Right! the data grid had its backgroundBehavior set to true! Sure I made that inadvertently as, naively, I was not conscious that a data grid could have a backgroundBehavior ;-)) (I suppose that it is because it is not settable in the Basic properties pane unlike the common other groups!)
Very useful to be aware of that ;-))

Thank you very much Trevor for your very efficient help 

My problem is solved (the "create card" part of my handler runs like a charm now).
