Hi telerik,

I have some trouble finding the properties inside the r.a.d.grid designer for changing the text values for the Edit, Insert and Update buttons when I am in (InPlace) edit-mode.

I've found the ones under EditFormSettings --> EditColumn, but that didn't change the values when editing inside a row?

Am I missing something or do I have to do this in code?

Greetings,
Daniel

Hello Daniel,

To change the text values of the Edit/Update/Insert/Cancel button when using InPlace editing, set the corresponding properties (EditText, UpdateText, etc.) directly through the GridEditCommandColumn instance you added to the grid.

Hi,

Try setting it in the GRidEditCommandColumn as shown below.

ASPX:
<telerik:GridEditCommandColumn  EditText="Change" UpdateText="Save"  CancelText="Exit"  ></telerik:GridEditCommandColumn> 
 


Thanks
Princy.

Hmmm... I suppose that works when you have manually added a GridEditCommandColumn?

I checked the options 'Auto generate edit column at runtime' and 'Auto generate delete column at runtime' from the smart tag menu.

So I think I'll have to add it myself and uncheck these properties from the smart tag menu?

I think it can be done at runtime with this code:

protected void grid_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)  
    {  
        if (e.Item is GridCommandItem)  
        {  
            (e.Item.Controls[0].Controls[0].Controls[0].Controls[0].Controls[0]  
             as LinkButton).Text = "Insert";  
 
            (e.Item.Controls[0].Controls[0].Controls[0].Controls[1].Controls[0]  
                as LinkButton).Text = "Update";  
        }  
    } 

... but then again it is easier to add the columns manually :)

Hi Daniel,

Try the following code snippet to change the Text properties for the AutoGeneratedEditColumn in the ColumnCreated event.

CS:
  protected void RadGrid1_ColumnCreated(object sender, GridColumnCreatedEventArgs e) 
    { 
        GridColumn col = (GridColumn)e.Column; 
        if (col.UniqueName == "AutoGeneratedEditColumn") 
        { 
            GridEditCommandColumn editCol = (GridEditCommandColumn)e.Column; 
            editCol.UpdateText = "Save"
            editCol.EditText = "Change"
            editCol.CancelText = "Exit"
        } 
    } 


Hope this helps..
Shinu.

Here's the VB version, slightly different but same result, will work for Autogenerated and Manually inserted columns. This is most useful when using a grid to display multiple types of data.


        If e.Column.ColumnType.ToString = "GridEditCommandColumn" Then 
            Dim Col As Telerik.Web.UI.GridEditCommandColumn = RadGrid1.Columns(e.Column.EditFormColumnIndex)  
            Col.EditText = "Your Edit Text" 
            Col = Nothing 
        End If
