    The changes are:
    • The inclusion of a <LABEL> for edit
    • Placing the label text into a <TH>

    We got recently dinged on this by a Section 508 certification firm.

    For improved clarity:  http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/input/examples/common/orderform/defaultcs.aspx 

    <table cellpadding="0" summary="Order form" cellspacing="10" style="MARGIN-LEFT: 10px">

    <tr> 
        <td>Price</td> 
    <td> <span id="RadNumericTextBox1_wrapper" class="RadInput RadInput_Default" style="white-space:nowrap;"><input type="text" value="$99.99" id="RadNumericTextBox1_text" name="RadNumericTextBox1_text" class="riTextBox riEnabled" style="width:125px;" />.....</span> </td>

    should appear like:

    <table cellpadding="0" summary="Order form" cellspacing="10" style="MARGIN-LEFT: 10px">

    <tr> 
                <th><label for="RadNumericTextBox1_text">Price</label></th> 
    <td> <span id="RadNumericTextBox1_wrapper" class="RadInput RadInput_Default" style="white-space:nowrap;"><input type="text" value="$99.99" id="RadNumericTextBox1_text" name="RadNumericTextBox1_text" class="riTextBox riEnabled" style="width:125px;" />.....</span> </td>

    Many thanks for your prompt attention to this.  This request would apply to at least the following:

    • telerik:GridBoundColumn
    • telerik:GridCheckBoxColumn
    • telerik:GridDateTimeColumn
    • telerik:GridDropDownColumn
    • telerik:GridHTMLEditorColumn
    • telerik:GridMaskedColumn 
    • telerik:GridNumericColumn

    Hi Ken,

    I'm afraid that RadGrid currently does not support this scenario, however you may use FormTemplate functionality in order to build the edit form with the desired markup.

    Please excuse us for the inconvenience.

    I've written many many Web Controls, and the change that is required to support this appears to be very minor. A single property= Enhanced508="true" could trigger this behaviour.

    My preference is to see it in the control (so all may benefit) instead of modifying the source code and implementing it myself.

    Hello Ken,

    We have added the associated label to the edit form's input controls, thus you may check next internal builds.
    As to the replacing the edit form's td elements with th I'm afraid that this is not applicable as the edit form actually does not represents a tabular data and the table element is used just for convenance and simplification.

    All the best,
