Hello-

I have a RadGrid setup on my ASPX page with a custom edit template.  If add a new record or edit an existing record this custom template displays with a number of text boxes.  TextBox1, TexBox2, etc.  I want to take the text that was entered in one of the boxes TextBox1 for example and create a physical folder with that name (text from the textbox).

I'm not sure on a few things:

1. How do i get at a textbox control in a custom template?
2. I need to be able to do this on a New Record and Update Record.

The application is to take data entered by the user to describe a photo album.  I then want to create a physical folder in two locations, this will be for thumbnails and fullsize photos to be shown the enduser.

Thanks!

Hello Greg,

You can try out the following code to access textboxes in a custom EditFormTemplate:
aspx:
 
  <EditFormSettings EditFormType="Template">  
        <FormTemplate>  
            <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" Text='<%#Bind("PlaceFrom") %>' runat="server"></asp:TextBox>  
             <asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButton1" CommandName="Update" runat="server">Update</asp:LinkButton> 
            <asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButton2"  CommandName="PerformInsert"  runat="server">Insert</asp:LinkButton> 
        </FormTemplate>  
        </EditFormSettings>  
 

cs:
protected void RadGrid1_ItemCommand(object source, Telerik.Web.UI.GridCommandEventArgs e) 
    { 
 
        if (e.CommandName == RadGrid.PerformInsertCommandName || e.CommandName == RadGrid.UpdateCommandName) 
        { 
            if (e.Item is GridEditFormItem) 
            { 
                GridEditFormItem editItem = (GridEditFormItem)e.Item; 
                TextBox txtbx = (TextBox)editItem.FindControl("TextBox1"); 
 
            } 
        } 

Thanks
Princy.
