Hi

I have a Telerik grid that I need to be filled dynamicly.

I have a menu which is also dynamic, each item of the menu represented by a unique number, according to this number I know which SQL query to run and fill the grid accordingly.

The grid should have the options for: Insert, Update, Delete.

The grid should also have the option of filtering.

I need to change the columns headers as well at runtime while filling the grid.

What is the best way to implement those needs? 

Thanks,

Eliran

Hi Eliran,

The RadGrid control can generate its columns based on the available data. You can use that feature and have the grid use autogenerated columns.


As for the Update/Insert/Delete functionality. The grid supports automatic data source operations when it is bound to a declarative DataSource control. Check out the following article that describes the behavior in more detail:



In case you need more advanced features you can also define the RadGrid structure manually. In order to change the structure of the grid dynamically you would need to create it in the code-behind using the Page_Init event. The article below outlines the approach you can use.

Thanks Viktor

All problems have been solved when I change the Grid initialization from the Page_Load event to Page_Init.

HI,

we have a dynamic datasource to bind to our grid.

during runtime we get then an Iqueryable<xxx> - which we want to bind to a grid.

are there any examples on handling dynamic datasources?

here is my code which i currently have:

 @(Html.Kendo().Grid<PartnerViewModel>()
              .Name("clientgrid")
              .HtmlAttributes(new { style = "height: 500px;" })
              .Columns(columns =>
              {
                  columns.Template(c => @Html.ActionLink("Details", "Details", new { id = c.PartnerId, }));
                  columns.Template(c => @Html.ActionLink("Edit", "Edit", new { id = c.PartnerId, }));
                  columns.AutoGenerate(true);
              })
              .Resizable(resize => resize.Columns(true))
              .Sortable()
              .Groupable()
              .Filterable()
              .Reorderable(d => d.Columns(true))
              .Scrollable(scrollable => scrollable.Virtual(false))
              .Pageable(pageable => pageable
                  .Refresh(true)
                  .PageSizes(new List<object> { 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000 }).Refresh(true)
                  .ButtonCount(8))
              .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
                  .Ajax()
                  //.Batch(true)
                  //.ServerOperation(true)
                  //.Model(model => model.Id(p => p.PartnerId))
                  .Read(read => read.Action("partners_read", "Home"))
                  .PageSize(200))
              )

Hello Alain,

The exception you are seeing is a general exception and it would be hard to pinpoint its exact cause without further investigation.

Would you open a support ticket and send a runnable sample where the exception you are seeing is replicated? I would appreciate it if you can modify this example in a way that the error is replicated and send it to us. This would enable us to debug the code and look for what is causing the behavior.

Hi Viktor,

the examples on GitHub wont work, since its build up on an old version (MVC 2).

i will check if we can remove these references.

we are using Telerik Data Access component to generate the models and viewmodels dynamicly.

 

thanks & best regards

M
