I have a grid and a commanditem template of a button. On button click I want to copy the contents of the grid to the clipboard. I have a client settings on-command call to buttonclicked and it is not firing.

I am iterating on the client side through the grid and i concatenate to one large string. I have 4 columns, so I am putting each column followed by a tab, and then at the end of each row a new line. Then I will write this string out to the clipboard. I tried doing it on the server, and the string was built, but I could not access the clipboard on the server side, so I am trying to write the code on the client. The grid I am trying to copy is a template inside a tooltip.

I have a client settings on-command and it doesnt fire the javascript when I click the button( which is a command item). I put in a clientevent on key press, and it actually works if I highlight and press a key, but not on command(which is where my button is)  Here is the aspx:
 <telerik:RadToolTip runat="server" ID="RadToolTip2" TargetControlID="Label1"
                                Skin="Inox" ShowDelay="500" AutoCloseDelay="200000" Font-Names="arial"
                                Font-Size="XX-Large" BorderStyle="Inset" HideDelay="100000" ManualClose="False"
                                Position="BottomRight" Sticky="True" Width="300">  
                                    <telerik:RadGrid ID="toolTipUsers" runat="server"  DataSourceID="ContentCentralActiveUsers"  
                                    GridLines="None" Skin="Default" AutoGenerateColumns="False"
                                      <MasterTableView  DataSourceID="ContentCentralActiveUsers"   CommandItemDisplay="Top"  NoMasterRecordsText="No users to display."   
                                                    GridLines="None"    ItemStyle-Wrap="false" >
                                        <asp:Button ID="copy" runat="server" CommandName="Copy" Text="Copy to clipboard" >                               
                                      <ItemStyle  Font-Size="Larger"  Wrap="false"/>
                                      <AlternatingItemStyle  Font-Size="Larger" Wrap="false" />
                                           <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="login_name" HeaderText="User name"  UniqueName="username"  ></telerik:GridBoundColumn>
                                           <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="password" HeaderText="Password"  UniqueName="password"  ></telerik:GridBoundColumn>
                                           <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="email" HeaderText="Email" UniqueName="email"  ></telerik:GridBoundColumn>
                                           <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="package_name" HeaderText="Package" UniqueName="package" ></telerik:GridBoundColumn>
                                      <ClientSettings     ClientEvents-OnCommand="ButtonClicked"></ClientSettings>

and here is the javascript:

   function ButtonClicked(sender, args) {

               var grid = sender;
               var MasterTable = grid.get_masterTableView();
                var rows = MasterTable.get_dataItems();
                var cell;
                var username;
                var password;
                var email;
                var spackage;
                var copyString;
                copyString = "User name \t Password \t Email \t Package  \r\n";
                for (var i = 0; i < rows.length; i++) {
                    var row = rows[i];
                    cell = MasterTable.getCellByColumnUniqueName(row, "username");
                    username = cell.innerHTML;
                    cell = MasterTable.getCellByColumnUniqueName(row, "password");
                    password = cell.innerHTML;
                    cell = MasterTable.getCellByColumnUniqueName(row, "email");
                    email = cell.innerHTML;
                    cell = MasterTable.getCellByColumnUniqueName(row, "package");
                    spackage = cell.innerHTML;
                    copyString = copyString + username +"\t"+password+"\t"+email+"\t"+spackage+"\r\n";
                window.clipboardData.setData('text', copyString);

Hello Laura,

By default the grid can raise client Command event only from default grid controls. If you want to raise this from a button inside grid template you can use fireCommand() client side-method:

All the best,

Thank you. I actually used the onclientclick event for the button in the template. But I'm sure I  will use the firecommand in the future.
