Hi,

I have a grid that displays a list of all the nominations.  One of the columns displays the status of the nomination.  If this nomination has a status of approved, then it must ONLY display the text Approved.  If the status is Pending, then this colum must display an Edit button to be able to modify this record.  The edit button must only be displayed when the status is pending.  If the status is approved then the edit button must not be displayed.

Is there a sample like this some where?

Thanks
Brendan

Hello Brendan,

You can try the following code snippet to make the edit button visible/invisible based on your column value.

ASPX:
 <Columns> 
         <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="Status" HeaderText="Nomination Status" UniqueName="Status_Column" /> 
         <telerik:GridEditCommandColumn UniqueName="EditButton"
         </telerik:GridEditCommandColumn> 
 </Columns> 

C#:
  
 protected void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e) 
    { 
        if (e.Item is GridDataItem) 
        { 
            GridDataItem item = (GridDataItem)e.Item; 
            if (item["Status_Column"].Text == "Approved"
            { 
                LinkButton editbtn = (LinkButton)item["EditButton"].Controls[0]; 
                editbtn.Visible = false
            } 
        } 
    } 

Regards,
Shinu.

Hi,

Thanks for the answer.  This piece of code does not work, it tells me that it cannot find Status_Column.  Here is the error: "Cannot find a cell bound to column name 'Status_Column'".

The row is in the detail table.

Hello Brendan,

If the row is in DetailTable, then in ItemDataBound event you have to check with the name of DetailTable. Check out the following code snippet.

ASPX:
  <DetailTables > 
      <telerik:GridTableView Name="GridTableView1" runat="server" ..........> 


C#:
  
 protected void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.GridItemEventArgs e) 
    { 
        if (e.Item is GridDataItem && e.Item.OwnerTableView.Name == "GridTableView1"//check with name of DetailTable 
        {  
            GridDataItem item = (GridDataItem)e.Item; 
            if (item["Status_Column"].Text == "Approved"
            { 
                LinkButton editbtn = (LinkButton)item["EditButton"].Controls[0]; 
                editbtn.Visible = false
            } 
        }  
     } 

Thanks
Princy.
