Hi all,

I've created a RadGrid using Client-Side Databinding according to this example:

This is the declaration of my RadGrid:
<telerik:RadGrid ID="Grid" runat="server" Skin="Metro" AllowAutomaticInserts="true" AllowAutomaticUpdates="true" AllowPaging="true" AllowMultiRowSelection="true" PageSize="25" EnableEmbeddedSkins="true">
    <MasterTableView CommandItemDisplay="Top" EditMode="PopUp" ClientDataKeyNames="Id" DataKeyNames="Id" InsertItemPageIndexAction="ShowItemOnCurrentPage">
            <telerik:GridEditCommandColumn />
            <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="Id" HeaderText="Id" UniqueName="Id" Display="false"></telerik:GridBoundColumn>
            <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="Name" HeaderText="Name" UniqueName="Name">
    <PagerStyle AlwaysVisible="true">
    <ClientSettings EnableRowHoverStyle="true">
        <DataBinding Location="~/services/service.asmx"
            SelectMethod="List" SelectCountMethod="ListCount">
        <Selecting AllowRowSelect="true" />

When I click the Add New Row or Edit button, the Grid calls my webservice, but besides that, nothing happens. No postback or anything else.

Am I missing something here? Is there a way to show the PopUp-form through client-side and should I do that?

Kind regards,

Hi Jesse,

Unfortunately the RadGrid does not support build in functionality for insert/update/delete when it is bound client side. A possible solution for your case would be to use an external edit/insert form and populate it on the client as shown in this demo of the product.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,
