I have a RadGrid that I'm attempting to use in form editing on. I'm currently using the following GridTemplateColumn. The problem is that what I really need is an InsertItemTemplate like what asp:DetailsView has. This is because I want the Status field to be editable in a RadComboBox on insert, but, non-editable and displayed in a label on edit. Does anyone know if this is possible in RadGrid? I'm assuming that I'll probably have to handle an event and adjust the visibility of fields based on whether it's in insert or edit mode? The problem is that I don't know what event I should use to do this and I also don't know how to lookup the control. I'm assuming I'll probably have to use FindControl() and maybe use the RowIndex to find the proper row in the grid or something. Any help would be greatly appreciated.




<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Status" SortExpression="Status">
                        <asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList1" runat="server" SelectedValue='<%# Bind("Status") %>'>
                            <asp:ListItem Text="" Value=""></asp:ListItem>
                            <asp:ListItem Text="Assigned" Value="Assigned"></asp:ListItem>
                            <asp:ListItem Text="Lost" Value="Lost"></asp:ListItem>
                            <asp:ListItem Text="Returned" Value="Returned"></asp:ListItem>
                        <%--<asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("Status") %>'></asp:TextBox>--%>
                        <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("Status") %>'></asp:TextBox>
                        <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text='<%# Bind("Status") %>'></asp:Label>
