    I have a form with a grid and a combo box where a user can select the table name they wish to edit.  I have the grid binding to the table name selected by calling Rebind() when the user makes a table name selection, and by handling the NeedDataSource event of the grid to bind to a DataTable.  That seems to work fine.

    The problem comes in when I try to edit.  I added a GridEditCommandColumn to the MasterTableView's Columns collection so I get a link to start editing a row, and the editor form appears just fine.  But when I click on 'update', and I try to handle the UpdateCommand event raised by the grid (from code cobbled together from forums), I get an argument out of range exception, that I believe is coming from the edited item's OwnerTableView.DataKeyValues collection which has zero elements. 

    One other thing to note, I am using Postgres as the database, but I don't think this is the issue, as I am using npgsql to get standard objects to bind to.

    Any ideas?






        Private Sub RadGrid1_UpdateCommand(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Telerik.Web.UI.GridCommandEventArgs) Handles RadGrid1.UpdateCommand
            Dim editedItem As GridEditableItem = TryCast(e.Item, GridEditableItem)
            Dim table As DataTable = Me.GridSource
            'Locate the changed row in the datasource
            Dim pk As String = GetPrimaryTablePKColumn(cboTable.Text)
            If pk Is Nothing OrElse pk.Trim = String.Empty Then
                e.Canceled = True
            End If
    'Error Happens Here
            Dim changedRows As DataRow() = table.Select(pk & " = " &
            If changedRows.Length <> 1 Then
                e.Canceled = True
            End If
            'Update new values
            Dim newValues As New Hashtable
            e.Item.OwnerTableView.ExtractValuesFromItem(newValues, editedItem)
                For Each entry As DictionaryEntry In newValues
                    changedRows(0)(DirectCast(entry.Key, String)) = entry.Value
            Catch ex As Exception
                e.Canceled = True
            End Try

    Hi Avery,

    Thank you for contacting us and for your question.

    When rebinding the grid to the new table you should also add the name of the primary key column to the DataKeyNames collection of the grid. The in the UpdateCommand you can easily get the primary key value for the given row as follows:


    Hope this information will prove helpful.
