I finally got Q3 upgrade installed and I am now trying to use the
<CommandItemSettings
                    ShowExportToWordButton="true"
                    ShowExportToExcelButton="true"
                    ShowExportToCsvButton="true"
                    ShowExportToPdfButton="true"
                    />

in my current application.  Intellisense says that these are not valid attributes of the CommandItemSettings element.  I have looked at your example code in your demo site and they work there just fine.  I copied your code into my grid definition and it does not work. What am I doing wrong?  How do I get the Command item buttons to appear in my RadGrids CommandItemDisplay area?

Hi Dick,

Since the intellisence does not recognize the attributes, I strongly feel that the old version is not replaced with the new one and you are working with the old DLL. Check the version of the dll file in your web-application's bin folder. If it is not Q3, then try copying the new DLL (located in the /bin  folder or /bin35 folder if you use the NET 3.5 build of the assembly) to your web-application's /bin folder in order to replace the old dll. 

Regards,
Shinu.

Hello Dick,

For your convenience I prepared a sample demo which is working as expected with Q3 2009. Please
give it a try and let me know if you need additional assistance.

<

 

CommandItemTemplate>

 

 

 

<a href="#" onclick="return ShowInsertForm();">Add New Record</a>

 

 

 

</CommandItemTemplate>

 

 


 

<CommandItemSettings ShowExportToWordButton="true" ShowExportToExcelButton="true"

Hello,

One suggestion to accomplish this appearance is by using default commanditem with export buttons (instead of using CommandItemTemplate) and invoking the client method on clicking the "Add New Record" button. You could access the "Add New Record" button from code behind and hook the "OnClientClick" event as shown below.

C#:
 protected void RadGrid1_ItemCreated(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e) 
    { 
      if (e.Item is GridCommandItem) 
        { 
            GridCommandItem cmditem = (GridCommandItem)e.Item; 
            LinkButton btn = (LinkButton)cmditem.FindControl("InitInsertButton"); 
            btn.OnClientClick = "return ShowInsertForm();"
        } 
    } 

 In the client handler, add the code for showing the window.

Java Script:
<script type="text/javascript"
    function ShowInsertForm() 
    { 
        // code for opening the window 
        return false
    } 
</script> 

Regards,
Princy.

Hello Andrew,


RadGrid has a property "OpenInNewWindow" under ExportSettings section. Set the property to "True" in order to show the exported file in new window.

ASPX:
. . .
 <ExportSettings OpenInNewWindow="true">
 </ExportSettings>
 <MasterTableView CommandItemDisplay="Top" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1">
     <CommandItemSettings ShowExportToExcelButton="true" ShowAddNewRecordButton="false" />
. . .
