In my application I have a grid with a dynamic number of rows and a dynamic number of columns. The cells are editable and I want to keep them in sync with my model to save the data back later.

Here is the code of my grid:

              <grid vflex="1" height="100%">
                <columns height="22px" menupopup="auto"
                  <column forEach="${head}"
                    label="${(empty each) ? c:l('header.default') : each}"
                    sort="auto" />
                  <row forEach="${each.value.properties}">
                    <label value="${each.key}" />
                    <textbox use="translator.ui.ComparableTextbox" apply="translator.controller.EventController"
                      onChange="self.style="font-weight:bold"; tab1.label = "* " + tab1.label;"
                      forEach="${each.value}" value="${each}" />

Thank you in advance for your help.

First, evaluated expressions (${...) are only 1-way-bindings. For 2-way binding ZK offers annotated databinding (@{xxx}).
But EL's more flexible and it's not possible to create dynamic columns with @databindig. So you have to use EL's and events.

1. Setup a composer (i.e. for the window or another headcomponent)
--> it think apply inside a forEach-loop isn't a good idea....

2. forward the event <textbox forward="onChange=onYourEvent"...
--> note: noChange created interpreted zscript --> good for prototyping, bad for productive environment

3. catch the event (ForwardEvent) inside your javacode

4. retrieve the component from the event (getTarget from the originEvent) --> textbox
4a. and follow the UI tree to get the key or object keys, i.e. getParent() --> row --> getFirstChild() --> key label

or plan B:
create the whole thin in pur java and add eventlistener like swing
