Hi there,

I need to update some of the values of the item being edited in my code-behind based on some values in a custom Edit Form on our Rad Grid. Can I access the item (and update some values) from one of the Grid's event handlers? Currently I'm storing the values in temporary variables and then injecting the new values in the ObjectDataSource's Inserting/Updating event handlers, but it would be much nicer if I could do it all in one spot. (I can't do it all in the ObjectDataSource event handlers as I can't access the controls inside my Grid's Edit Form.)

I've been playing with the ExtractValues and UpdateValues methods of the GridEditableItem object, but I'm not having any luck.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated :)

Hi Brent,

Try handling the UpdateCommand/InsertCommand or ItemCommand event of RadGrid for your purpose. You can find the below articles for more information on how to get new values there in the below articles:

Hi Iana,

Thanks for your reply, but it's not quite what I'm looking for. We don't use DataTables to bind our grids, so we can't edit the rows like that.

What I'm hoping for is something like the e.InputParameters property available in the Inserting/Updating/Deleting event handlers for ObjectDataSources.

If this is possible, please let me know.

Cheers!

Hi Brent,

The grid events do not have access to the data source control parameters. However on UpdateCommand/InsertCommand you can still set values to the datasource controls parameter. For instance using the below syntax:

ObjectDataSource1.UpdateParameters["ID"].DefaultValue = 1;

I hope this helps.

Sincerely yours,
Iana
