    I have a control hierarchy that looks like the following:

        -> page (using a masterpage)
            -> web user control (inside a ContentPlaceHolder)
                -> RadPanelBar
                    -> RadPanelItem
                        -> ItemTemplate
                            -> RadToolBar (Controls the formview insert/edit modes)
                            -> FormView (same level as the RadToolBar)
                                -> EditItemTemplate
                                    -> TextBox

    The problem is with the TextBox. When the FormView is bound to data, the Textbox behaves as if it were readonly. In fact, any input control that allows typing behaves as if it were readonly. For example, a RadDatePicker control will not accept typed input, but it will allow you to select a value using the Calendar control attached to it.

    As a test, I placed a textbox in a separate RadPanelItem and as soon as the formview binds to a datasource, the textbox becomes "readonly".

    It's almost as if the focus of the textbox is lost as soon as you select it. If you click rapidly on the textbox while mashing the keyboard, sometimes letters make it through to the textbox.

    Let me know if you require additional information.

    Hi Chad,

    I think it will be best if you can open a support ticket and send us a simple running project (incl. CSS, images, skins, DB backup if needed and so on) demonstrating the problem (and step-by-step instructions on doing so). In that way we can reproduce and pinpoint the problems you're facing on our side, understand the logic of your application and provide a solution.

    Kind regards,
