So I have an address popup and I want to display some different wording or hide some textboxes based on what radGrid has called it.  Whats the best way to do this?
<MasterTableView EditMode="PopUp" CommandItemDisplay="Top"  DataKeyNames="AddressId">
 
                   <EditFormSettings  UserControlName="~/AddressEdit.ascx" EditFormType="WebUserControl" InsertCaption="Add new Address" PopUpSettings-Width="800px"
        FormStyle-BackColor="AliceBlue" FormStyle-BorderWidth="5px" FormStyle-BorderColor="Turquoise" CaptionFormatString="Edit Address ID: {0}"
        CaptionDataField="AddressId">
             <EditColumn UniqueName="EditCommandColumnAddr"/>
    </EditFormSettings>

Hi Dan,

One possible approach for such requirement is to handle the Page_Load event of the user control and get reference to the RadGrid that is currently opening the user control:
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    string gridID = (NamingContainer as GridEditFormItem).OwnerGridID;
}

Once you have the ID of the grid you could add custom logic for different grids:
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    string gridID = (NamingContainer as GridEditFormItem).OwnerGridID;
    if (gridID == "RadGrid1")
    {
        TextBox1.Visible = false;
        Label1.Text = "Grid1 edit form";
    }
    else
    {
        Label1.Text = "Grid2 edit form";
    }
}

I have prepared a sample page for your convenience. Please refer to the attached files and see if this helps with your requirements.
