Hello,

A while a go, posted this question about how to select a row after a grid refresh.

The answer given back then was a great workaround.  However, once deployed in production with large amount of data, I realized many client's grid were not loaded within 50 milliseconds, leaving the first row unselected.

Increasing the delay might fix the problem for some people but how long should we wait to make sure every grids are loaded?  In the other hand, I don't want to add transform my problem into unnecessary.

What's missing here is an event triggered by the Grid.

Is there a way to create an event named DataBounded (or AfterDataBound) that would fired once the grid will complete the loading of the data received from the dataSource?

Best regards,

Simon

Yes there is :)

You can hook up to a dataBound event on the grid. here is more info on it

Hello nikobellic,

I already know about the dataBound event.  As mentioned in the related post, the problem about this event is that it's fired after the data is received but before the grid gets filled with rows.

Unfortunately, in those conditions, you can't rely on the actual dataBound event to select first row of the grid.

Hello Simon,

The dataBound event is triggered after the rows are rendered. The dataBinding event is triggered before the rows are rendered.

Good news for me, you are right Daniel!

Did something change about this event?  Maybe I'm wrong but I really thought the setTimeout solution proposed in this post was required when I asked the question the first time but obviously, this is not required anymore.

Hello again,

I am not sure why the timeout was needed. The rows should already be rendered in the dataBound event and this behavior has not been changed.
