Hello:

I am the senior enterprise architect for Leon County Schools in Florida.  We're working on a product that will be used in all Florida counties. LCS has been an Infragistics enterprise customer, but I'd rather prick myself w/needles than use them.  Their support is horrendous, their controls are bloated, and need a complete rewrite.

Here is my issue:  I have 4 requirements for Telerik controls w/DotNetNuke that I need to show specific examples of Telerik controls working with:

1. Need to have a grid where columns all cells in col/rows 2-n when double-clicked will display a drop-down/combo/type ahead control w/the current item selected, and when clicked, will save the change (if any)
2. Need to convert all cells to display a link, including the value for that cell in the link (ie, a cell contains student-id, and when clicked, opens up an aspx file w/yada.aspx?student_id=xxxxx).
3. For (2 above), Enter key moves the cell selection to the cell below it.
4. I need to be able to show that I can change the cell values in column 3, rows 2-10.

No AJAX is needed yet, no paging, just the above functionality.  If someone at Telerik can show me code that accomplishes the above, I can get approval to replace Infragistics for our internal development--which will end up getting Telerik into all the shops in the state of Florida (Infragistics currently controls this).

I have had trouble even discovering how to access a simple row in Telerik (why don't you people use 'Rows' like everyone else? How hard would it be to change your obfuscated .Masteryada.GetItems() to rows?). Your documentation on 'rows' is severely lacking, IMO, but at least it has no broken images and is clean, unlike Infragistics.

There is a 5th requirement, but it appears you can not do mixed (load 2 columns via a databind, then add 3 columns dynamically) loading--which I would consider a serious flaw normally, but it can be worked around by merging into one stored proc.

It will be interesting to see how quickly we can resolve the above.  I had hoped to do this anonymously, but after 12 hours in your documentation, and searching the web, which all too often yields help for an archaic version of the grid.  I hope I am telegraphing how ANXIOUS I am to be able to replace the Infragistics hold that is on the county school systems in Florida...

Hi Andy,

Generally RadGrid does not have built-in cell selection however you can achieve this using client-side API. You can check this example for edit on double click and you can use GridHyperLinkColumn, GridTemplateColumn or create hyperlinks on the fly using ItemCreated/ItemDataBound in normal auto-generated GridBoundColumn.

Kind regards,
Vlad

Hi Andy,

As stated above selecting cells in radgrid is not supported out-of-the-box. Here is a help document link which explains how to integrate this feature in Grid.
Selecting cells

Thanks
Shinu.
