Hi All, I have simple grid control which I like to have in edit mode when the grid is created. But only for one column as a checkbox which is boolean value in the database.  Then when a user clicks the checkbox, I would like boolean value to be updated via AJAX and show some progress that something is happening. I'm new to this. Pls guide me. 

Many Thanks,

Hi Eric,

Try the following code snippet to set the entire Grid in edit mode on load itself.

CS:
protected void RadGrid1_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e) 
    { 
        foreach (GridDataItem item in RadGrid1.MasterTableView.Items) 
        { 
            item.Edit = true
        } 
        RadGrid1.MasterTableView.Rebind(); 
     } 

You can set the ReadOnly property for all the other columns (which you dont want to set in edit mode) other than the GridCheckBox column to true. You can perform the update operation on clicking the CheckBox  in its CheckChanged event.

CS:
  protected void RadGrid1_ItemCreated(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e) 
    { 
        if (e.Item is GridDataItem) 
        { 
            GridDataItem item = (GridDataItem)e.Item; 
            CheckBox chkbx = (CheckBox)item["CheckCol"].Controls[0]; 
            chkbx.AutoPostBack = true
            chkbx.CheckedChanged += new EventHandler(chkbx_CheckedChanged); 
 
        } 
         
    } 
    void chkbx_CheckedChanged(object sender, EventArgs e) 
    { 
        CheckBox chkbx = (CheckBox)sender; 
       //perform Update operation here 
    } 


Thanks
