    Hi all.  I have tried numerous ways to do this but cannot.  My goal is SIMPLE...

    "To be able to use a RadGrid that I can control formatting on, bind to a SharePoint list and use the internal SharePoint edit dialog commands without writing a bunch of code"

     Things I've tried (some based on correspondence with the Telerik team)...

    1. Inheriting from TelerikSPRadGridWebPart and creating my own custom webpart so that I can bind to the events of the Grid.
      PROBLEM:  I can't seem to get the right combination of files perhaps.  I can deploy and load the webpart onto a page,  but there is no data and the Designer doesn't work at all.  I've tried this with and without an associated ascx control.  You'd think without is the way to go.  Then simply have a .dwp and .cs file with the .cs file inheriting from TelerikSPRadGridWebPart.  Again, I can get this on the page, I can even access the Grid (RadGrid) property on the webpart in my .cs file...  But that's about it.  Unless I want to go about doing all of the databinding myself, that's as far as it takes me. 

    2. Created a simple webpart using the RadGrid and creating my own datatable from a SharePoint list query.  Bind the datatable to the RadGrid.  I have tried the following with regard to the Edit functionality I described in my goal...

    2a. I've tried a GridButtonColumn and then in the item data bound event handler i've tried to set the OnClientClick to the SharePoint showEditInsertForm...

    2b. I've tried a Grid LinkButtonColumn and navigation parameters (id) and url format string to match the SharePoint string. 

    this last one, the LinkButton...actually works.  but it's not how the client wants it implemented. there you go.  Any help is greatly appreciated.
