    Hi -

    I often call functions to generate content in my grids and lists.  When I do I always use the DataBinder.Eval() function to get specific fields from the data item and then I send those to my code behind function.  Is there a way to just send the entire data item?

    For example below is what I put in my HTML and then the signature of the function in my code behind that takes that data and then generates what I'd like.  If possible I would like to just call CustomerListActions(DataItem As ObjectType).  Thanks!


    <telerik:GridTemplateColumn><br><%# CustomerListActions(DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "ID"), DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "IsDeleted"), DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "CompanyName"))%><br></telerik:GridTemplateColumn><br>

    Function Signature in Code Behind
    Public Function CustomerListActions(lngID As Long, intIsDeleted As Integer, strCompanyName As StringAs String<br>End Function

    Hello Ken,

    You could pass the data item by simply passing the Container.DataItem in the custom method. Please check out the following code snippet.
    <%# CustomerListActions(Container.DataItem)%>
    Public Function CustomerListActions(container As Object) As String
        Dim row As DataRowView = TryCast(container, DataRowView)
        Dim output As String = ""
        output += row("Column1").ToString() & "<br/>"
        output += row("Column2").ToString() & "<br/>"
        output += row("Column3").ToString() & "<br/>"
        output += row("Column4").ToString()
        Return output
    End Function

    Container.DataItem was exactly what I was looking for.
