I'm using permissions on a viewmodel to determine if the user can edit the gridview. If the user can edit the gridview i would like that entire column to be in an "Edit" mode. If not then the only see the cell template. Is there a way to set the gridview in Edit Mode by default? I can change the other columns IsReadOnly to false that I don't need accessed.

Thanks!

Hi Will,

 Only one cell can be in edit mode at a time by default. What you can do is to set the CellTemplate property of the column you wish to be in "edit mode" to a template with the appropriate control (for instance a TextBox bound to the property the column is bound to). That way all the cells in the column will contain a TextBox, which the user will be able to manipulate, without having to toggle the edit mode of RadGridView.

Kind regards,

Could you post an example of the xaml for the above solution?  Here is what I'm using and Not getting the checkbox controls to be in edit mode by default:

<telerik:RadGridView x:Name="MerchantSelectionGrid"
                                 IsFilteringAllowed="True"
                                 SelectionMode="Single"
                                 ShowGroupPanel="False"  
                                 AutoGenerateColumns="False"
                                 ItemsSource="{Binding Merchants}"
                                 VerticalContentAlignment="Stretch"
                                 Grid.Row="1"
                                 BorderThickness="0,1,0,0"
                                 Background="{x:Null}" Grid.Column="1" ShowGroupFooters="True" VerticalAlignment="Top">
                <telerik:RadGridView.Columns>
                    <telerik:GridViewDataColumn Header="" IsReadOnly="False" DataMemberBinding="{Binding IsSelected, Mode=TwoWay}">
                        <telerik:GridViewDataColumn.CellEditTemplate>
                            <DataTemplate>
                                <CheckBox IsEnabled="True" IsChecked="{Binding IsSelected, Mode=TwoWay}"/>
                            </DataTemplate>
                        </telerik:GridViewDataColumn.CellEditTemplate>
                    </telerik:GridViewDataColumn>
                    <telerik:GridViewDataColumn Header="Group Name" IsReadOnly="true" DataMemberBinding="{Binding GroupName}"/>
                    <telerik:GridViewDataColumn Header="Family Name" IsReadOnly="true" DataMemberBinding="{Binding FamilyName}"/>
                    <telerik:GridViewDataColumn Header="Category Name" IsReadOnly="true" DataMemberBinding="{Binding CategoryName}"/>
                    <telerik:GridViewDataColumn Header="Merchant Name" IsReadOnly="true" DataMemberBinding="{Binding Name}"/>
                </telerik:RadGridView.Columns>
            </telerik:RadGridView>

Nevermind.  Found the issues.  I was using the CellEditTemplate vs. the CellTemplate.  What's the diff?

Hello Jay,

It is good to hear that you have resolved your problem.

As to what is the difference between the CellTemplate and CelEditTemplate:
  •  The CellTemplate gets or sets the data template for the cell in view mode
  •  The CellEditTemplate gets or sets the data template for the cell in edit mode.

All the best,
