Hi

I have just started using RadControls and I must say they are really elegant!
 
What I am trying to achieve is the possibility to show only a subset of available
database columns in the grid view, with the autogenerated edit popup showing
a fuller set of fields for editing.

I set the Visible property of columns I didn't want in the grid view to 'false' but it also
removes that item from the popup form. Can I get round this?

If not, what is the best way to achieve this?

I do this very frequently for clients (using the less elegant  grid/form view), so I am trying
to find the most efficient approach.

Can someone point me in the right direction? I am hoping it is just setting a few properties...

Clive

Hi

OK I found the answer just after posting this:
Use the 'Display' property and set it to 'false' on the unwanted columns.
Then at run time these columns do not appear but in the popup edit box they are all
there.

Nice!
