Found this in the datagrid manual:

"When editing stops (focus leaves field, user presses escape key, etc.) the message
DeleteFieldEditor is sent to the data grid. This in turn sends CloseFieldEditor pFieldEditor to pField if
the user changed the content or ExitFieldEditor pFieldEditor if no change was made"

Sounds like you would need a CloseFieldEditor and ExitFieldEditor handlers in your script.
