    I've run into a problem with the RadDataForm where I cannot seem to get the Cancel button to become enabled.

    The problem exists in a much more complicated app, but I created a small test app to see if I could get it to work in a very simple implementation, however it still does not.

            <local:ViewModel x:Key="vm"/>

        <Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White" DataContext="{StaticResource vm}">
            <telerik:RadDataForm ItemsSource="{Binding Data}"/>

    Data is an Observable collection defined in the ViewModel. Data is of Type 'DataClass' . Both the ViewModel and DataClass implement INotifyPropertyChanged.

    I've looked at the demo (http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#DataForm/FirstLook) where it appears to work, and there doesn't seem to be anything different there from what I have above.

    Hi Wayne,

    RadDataForm's "Cancel" button is enabled only when your data type implement the IEditableObject interface. It executes the RadDataFormCommands.CancelEdit command that invokes the edited item's CancelEdit() method.

    Hi Ivan,

    My silverlight application is using database first approach of EF. And the entities are being generated so am not able to implement IEditableObject interface. Let me know if there is another way to enable cancel button on RadDataForm while in edit mode.

    Hi Avani,

    Generally speaking, EntityFramework will generate the corresponding entity class as partial one. Can you please confirm that? If this is so, you should be able to add additional functionality by defining your own partial class that implements the needed interface. You can take a look at the Partial Classes and Methods MSDN topic for further reference.
