Well...I ended up changing my page structure around since I couldn't get this figured out, so I now have the RadGrid and an ASP button in the same user control.
I'm able to fire off the update command for the RadGrid using the FireCommandEvent method, but I'm having some problems in my UpdateCommand method.
My UpdateCommand method looks like this right now...
sender, GridCommandEventArgs e)
GridEditableItem item = (GridEditableItem)e.Item;
/*LINQ code to update items */
Requests.RequestsDataContext db =
Requests.tRequests request = db.tRequests.Single(p => p.ReqID ==
So...everything works except getting the value of the RadComboBox "dd_ReqTyp". I get an object not found error. If I simply hard code a value into the request.ReqTyp = line, it works perfectly.
Since I'm using the FireCommandEvent, do I need to look for objects in my edit template differently than what I'm using? I've always used item.FindControl() in the past and it's worked, so I'm not sure why it's not working now.
Thanks for the help!
