Hello guys,

Can't anyone help me?, I'm new in ASP.NET and Telerik.

I do have problem, I can't disable the button in my grid.

I put RadButton in GridTemplateColumn in my grid. This is the hierarchy that I mean :



I use RadGrid_NeedDataSource for the data source. I want to disable RadButton if the value in other GridBoundColumn "yes", and if  the value is "No" RadButton will be able.

Do you get it what I meant?

Hello Rizky,

For accomplishing the desired result you can handle the server-side OnItemDataBound event of the grid, retrieve the value that you will use for the condition and depending on the value, set the RadButton Enabled property to true or false.

Following is a simple example demonstrating such approach:
<telerik:RadGrid runat="server" ID="RadGrid1" OnNeedDataSource="RadGrid1_NeedDataSource" OnItemDataBound="RadGrid1_ItemDataBound">
    <MasterTableView AutoGenerateColumns="false">
            <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="ID"></telerik:GridBoundColumn>
            <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="BoolValue"></telerik:GridBoundColumn>
            <telerik:GridTemplateColumn UniqueName="ButtonColumn1">
                    <telerik:RadButton runat="server" ID="RadButton1" Text="Test button"></telerik:RadButton>

And the code-behind:
protected void RadGrid1_NeedDataSource(object sender, GridNeedDataSourceEventArgs e)
    DataTable table = new DataTable();
    table.Columns.Add("ID", typeof(int));
    table.Columns.Add("BoolValue", typeof(string));
    for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++)
        table.Rows.Add(i, i % 2 == 0 ? "yes" : "no");
    (sender as RadGrid).DataSource = table;
protected void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)
    if (e.Item is GridDataItem)
        GridDataItem item = e.Item as GridDataItem;
        if (item["BoolValue"].Text == "yes")
            (item["ButtonColumn1"].FindControl("RadButton1") as RadButton).Enabled = false;

Hope this helps.
