Hi Roger,

The fastest approach is to use neither of those but the built-in edit forms of RadGrid. However, the approaches you have mentioned give you much greater flexibility. Of those three, the first two require approximately the same development time as they both entail the population of the template/user control with edit-form controls and the setting of the binding expressions. Using RadWindow as an edit dialogue will take up a few extra implementation steps since you need to pass the data back to the calling window where the grid is located. More information you can find at the following online examples and the related help topics:
