Greets.
How are you folks doing?

I'm having some grid issues.

I've removed my comments about the client select column since the problems there are because I'm doing my binding client-side. From what I understand a great deal of functionality is still missing from the the client-side grid.

My UI calls for one of my grids to be hidden on page load. The grid is contained in a table and the row that holds the grid gets a style: none when the page loads. When a user action changes the row visibility and the grid is shown, the grid div is the proper size but the master table is scrunched/compressed/squeezed to the top of the div. In IE I see a little tiny scroll. Also IE will correct the sizing nicely I perform some more tabbing actions that hide said grid then show it again.
None of that is true in Firefox.
Has anyone else had to hide and show a grid on their page and came across this? Are there any workarounds?
Is there an alternative simpler telerik control I can use for this? Like a telerik list box or something?

Hope someone can offer some advice. Thanks!

Ah neverrmind about the client select column.
I'm having those probs because I'm doing everything client-side and there's not a hecuva lot of support for client-side grid functionality.

If anyone can offer some help on the grid sizing issue though, by all means feel free.

Hi Matt,

When RadGrid is used with static headers enabled, it needs to make some layout adjustments on the client. However, these can only be made when the control is NOT inside a container with a display:none style.

The workaround is to obtain a reference to the RadGrid client object as soon as the control becomes visible and call the repaint() method to the instance:

Javascript

var grid = $find("<%= RadGrid1.ClientID %<>");
grid.repaint();


Do not forget to wrap the <scrpt> tag inside a telerik:RadCodeBlock.
