I am evaulating radgrid and it's client side functionality for databinding.

My grid is calling a web method and retireves the required data just fine.

I found that when I setup client binding (declarative) as oppoes to standard binding on the server, the edit form no longer appears when the add new record or edit buttons of the grid are clicked. I created a javascript function to call showinsertitem(), but I get a out of memory error with that. is the showinsertitem functional? (using q1 2010 version).

what I would like to do is call another aspx.net page when the add new record or edit buttons are clicked.. is there an example of this?

is it possible to put a custom button in the grid that would do post backs, so I could perfrom server c# functionality?

Thanks in advance

Hi dennis,

Client-side binding and automatic edit/insert forms is not a scenario supported by the RadGrid control. You need to use an external form in order to insert/update records as shown in the following online example:
http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/grid/examples/client/insertupdatedelete/defaultcs.aspx

For that reason also the showInsertItem() method should be used only with server-side bound grid.

As for adding a button to the grid, that's possible, and you can do so in the ItemCreated event of the grid, getting a reference to the item you need (e.g. command item, footer, etc.) and adding the button to the corresponding table cell.

I hope it helps.
