    I have a radgrid. When I add a record, in the edit mode, I would like to set a maxlength to my gridBoundColumn which is multiline. I saw that I can't do that, does it have a workaround for this?

    I hope you are trying to set the MaxLength of the TextBox when the Grid is in edit mode. If so you can either try setting in the aspx or in the code behind as shown below.


    telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="ProductName"  MaxLength="5"   HeaderText="ProductName"   UniqueName="ProductName"



    protected void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.GridItemEventArgs e) 
         // in insert mode 
            if ((e.Item is GridEditFormInsertItem) && (e.Item.OwnerTableView.IsItemInserted)) 
                GridEditFormInsertItem insertItem = (GridEditFormInsertItem)e.Item; 
                TextBox txtbx = (TextBox)insertItem["ProductName"].Controls[0]; 
                txtbx.MaxLength = 5; 
          //in edit mode 
            if ((e.Item is GridEditFormItem) && (e.Item.IsInEditMode)) 
                GridEditFormItem editItem = (GridEditFormItem)e.Item; 
                TextBox txtbx = (TextBox)editItem["ProductName"].Controls[0]; 
                txtbx.MaxLength = 5;

    Hello Surya,

    Please note that Batch editing mode is different than other modes. You can find a detailed explanation in the following section:

    Hope this helps.
