Is it possible to change the DataField property of the GridBoundColumn based upon a selected value outside of the Grid?

 

thanks

Hi John,

Yes, it can be done. You will need to familiarize yourself with the Accessing Cells and Rows article to understand how to access items in the grid.

Here is a complete example where the DataField is being changed on a Button Click (same approach could be used for other control, OnSelectedIndexChanged events, etc..) 

<telerik:RadButton ID="RadButton1" runat="server" Text="Show Freight" OnClick="RadButton1_Click"></telerik:RadButton>

<telerik:RadGrid ID="RadGrid1" runat="server" AllowPaging="True" Width="800px" OnNeedDataSource="RadGrid1_NeedDataSource">
    <MasterTableView AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataKeyNames="OrderID">
        <Columns>
            <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="ShipCountry" HeaderText="Ship Country" UniqueName="MyColumn">
            </telerik:GridBoundColumn>
        </Columns>
    </MasterTableView>
</telerik:RadGrid>

 

C# - Code behind logic:

protected void RadGrid1_NeedDataSource(object sender, GridNeedDataSourceEventArgs e)
{
    RadGrid1.DataSource = OrdersTable(); 
}

private DataTable OrdersTable()
{
    DataTable dt = new DataTable();

    dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("OrderID", typeof(int)));
    dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("OrderDate", typeof(DateTime)));
    dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("Freight", typeof(decimal)));
    dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("ShipName", typeof(string)));
    dt.Columns.Add(new DataColumn("ShipCountry", typeof(string)));

    dt.PrimaryKey = new DataColumn[] { dt.Columns["OrderID"] };

    for (int i = 0; i < 70; i++)
    {
        int index = i + 1;

        DataRow row = dt.NewRow();

        row["OrderID"] = index;
        row["OrderDate"] = new DateTime(DateTime.Now.Year, DateTime.Now.Month, DateTime.Now.Day, 0, 0, 0).AddHours(index);
        row["Freight"] = index * 0.1 + index * 0.01;
        row["ShipName"] = "Name " + index;
        row["ShipCountry"] = "Country " + index;

        dt.Rows.Add(row);
    }

    return dt;
}


protected void RadButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    RadButton btn = sender as RadButton;
    // access the column
    GridBoundColumn col = RadGrid1.MasterTableView.GetColumn("MyColumn") as GridBoundColumn;

    // if condition met
    if (btn.Text == "Show Freight")
    {
        btn.Text = "Show ShipCountry";
        // change the DataField
        col.DataField = "Freight";
        // optionally you can change the Column header text as well
        col.HeaderText = "Freight";
    }else
    {
        btn.Text = "Show Freight";
        // change the DataField
        col.DataField = "ShipCountry";
        // optionally you can change the Column header text as well
        col.HeaderText = "Ship Country";
    }

    // force Rebind() the grid for the changes to take effect
    RadGrid1.Rebind();
}

Thank You,

I was using the RadGrid1.MasterTableView.OwnerGrid.Columns collection.  Experienced a brain freeze on this one!!

 

thanks
