Hi. Is there any way that I can get a LinkButton that's on the same page as a Grid to generate an 'InitInsert' command so that a new grid row can be entered by a user? For UI design reasons, I'm not able to include the LinkButton within a Grid CommandItemTemplate - it needs to be a separate LinkButton that's located in the page sidebar.
Regards.

Hello Ian,

You could put the RadGrid in insert mode using the InitInsert method:
protected void Button1_Click1(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    RadGrid1.MasterTableView.InsertItem();
}

Hi Daniel,
That partially worked although using your solution didn't seem to fire the RadGrid1_ItemCommand event so the code to hide the EditColumn wasn't executed. I got around this by including it in the LinkButton click handler:

protected void Button1_Click1(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
RadGrid1.MasterTableView.InsertItem();
GridEditCommandColumn editColumn = (GridEditCommandColumn)RadGrid1.MasterTableView.GetColumn("EditCommandColumn");
editColumn.Visible = false;
}

Is that the best solution or is there a way to actually fire the ItemCommand event from an external control?
Regards, Ian

Hello Ian,

It is also possible to fire the InitInsert command manually:
RadGrid1.MasterTableView.Items[0].FireCommandEvent("InitInsert", "");

Daniel,
Hi. That works perfectly. Thanks.
A suggestion: It might be worth adding a link in the 'Getting familiar with server-side API' section of the Grid documentation - this discusses all of the properties and events for the Grid but nothing about its methods. I never thought to look in the 'Control lifecycle' section of the  documentation where I now realise the FireCommandEvent is described!
Thanks again, Ian
