Is it possible to edit unbound checkbox in a radgrid? my experience is telling me no, but perhaps there is trick i could use to do so.

i have a grid bound to a sqldatasource. the data source includes a dummy column cast as a bit to default true. the check box displays checked (as expected) but whenever i enter edit mode, uncheck the box, then click update, the check box reverts to checked because - i surmise - that it is rebinding to the dummy bit column which is set to 1/true.

it is this surmised behavior which i wish to override. is it possibe? if not, would you consider adding a feature to allow for a free standing unbound check box so that developers can present a toggle for subsequent processing of grid items? i do not care to save this information to a data store - i only need it to process selected grid items.

Hi,

 If you only need to process the selected items you can use the GridClientSelectColumn (as shown in this demo) Or you can also add a GridTemplateColumn with checkbox in the ItemTemplate as shown here. This way the value of the checkbox will not be affected when you perform an update operation.

Kind regards,
