I have a RadGrid with a DetailTable in it.  When I expand a row in the MasterView to show the Detail, I want to change the detail row's Edit link text based on the data in the detail row.

For example if the row has col1="Blah", then I want the edit text to be "Edit Blah" instead of "Edit".

What's the easiest way to do this?

use the same functionality that sets the focus on a quantity textbox
in the ItemDataBound event handler of the grid
make sure it's the edit item
        Dim geItem As GridEditableItem = Nothing
        Dim rntbQty As RadNumericTextBox

        If TypeOf e.Item Is GridEditableItem And e.Item.IsInEditMode Then
            geItem = DirectCast(e.Item, GridEditableItem)
            ' hard coded location
            rntbQty = CType(geItem.Cells(1).FindControl("rntbQty"), RadNumericTextBox)
            rntbQty.Focus()
        End If

cast the e.item, go to the appropriate cells to find the LinkButton and the other control, then set the Text property of the button

Hi,

Try the following code to achieve your scenario.
C#:
protected void RadGrid2_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)
{
 if (e.Item is  GridDataItem &&  e.Item.OwnerTableView.Name == "DetailTable1")
 {
   GridDataItem dataitem = (GridDataItem)e.Item;
    if (dataitem["UniqueName"].Text == "text")
    {
        LinkButton link = (LinkButton)dataitem["EditColumn"].Controls[0];
        link.Text = "some text";
    }
 }
}

Thanks,
Shinu.

Thanks Shinu,

You got me close enough that I was able to tweak it for my environment.
