I have a RadGrid with a FormTemplate for editing the grid rows.  In one case the grid is populated with multiple rows and the user clicks the 'Edit' button on the row to invoke the editing form.  In another case the grid is populated by a single row.  In the later case, how can I instruct the grid to automatically open the editing form for the single row record when the grid is initially rendered?

Hello Dan,

Use the following code snippet in order to put the row in EditMode based on condition.

C#:

 
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)  
    {  
        if (condition) // Check for condition  
        {  
            RadGrid1.EditIndexes.Add(1);  
        }  
    }

Shinu,  I tried your suggestion, but it did not work for me.  Did not open the edit form.  But, I found that this code did what I wanted:

protected void RadGrid1_ItemCreated(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)  
    {  
        if (condition)  
        {  
            if (!Page.IsPostBack && e.Item is GridEditableItem)  
            {  
                e.Item.Edit = true;  
            }  
        }  
    }
