Indeed this is not something that can be achieved out of the box with RadGrid. As the control represents tabular data and communicates one way or another with an SQL server. This fact poses similar limitation to the data manipulation that can be achieved in the particular case. As there is no straightforward way to update only one column in a database table through a single SQL query so does the grid cannot perform such operation easily. One way to achieve this would be to utilize the approach of performing batch updates in RadGrid. But have in mind that this is a performance costly operation and executing it every few seconds might present a certain overhead in the application.
