Hello,

I have gone through most of the demos on the site.  In particular I have been looking the batch editing (http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-mvc/grid/editingbatch) and checkbox server side (http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-mvc/grid/checkboxesserverside).

I am struggling with combining them.  I have a data set and I want the ability to check, check, uncheck entries in bulk and give an status or reason for both in bulk as well.  What is the best way to combine checkbox and batch editing?

Thanks!

Hello Guru Rao,

 What have you tried so far? What are the problems which you are currently facing? There really shouldn't be any problem with integrating checkboxes with batch editing mode. Just make sure the checkbox column is ReadOnly() so the grid does not try to switch it in edit mode.

I have to do the Batch update and have a column with checkboxes and will save the value as true/ false depending on the selection.
If I set the property of the column as readonly, I manage to get the checkboxes selected but when I send the object back to controller, I'm unable to retrieve the value of the selected checkboxes.

Here is the code which I'm writing to show checkboxes in the grid

columns.Bound(x => x.Paint).Width(5).Title(

 

"Paint")

 

.ClientTemplate(

 

"<input type='checkbox' name='Paint' value= <#= Paint? checked='checked' : '' #> />")

 

.HtmlAttributes(

 

new { style = "text-align:center" });

I'm calling the controller method using the following code.

 

 

 

public ActionResult UpdateRecords([Bind(Prefix = "updated")]IEnumerable<CleaningEntitySearchResults> updatedOrders)

Please suggest where I'm doing it wrong.

Thanks a lot
