    I have no clue why, but this code was working yesterday and today it doesn't.

    I have the following grid:
    <telerik:RadGrid ID="RadGrid1" runat="server" AllowPaging="True" DataSourceID="Products"
        Skin="Forest" GridLines="None" OnItemDataBound="RadGrid1_ItemDataBound" Width="50%">
             <Scrolling AllowScroll="True" UseStaticHeaders="True" SaveScrollPosition="true" ></Scrolling>
                <ClientEvents OnBatchEditCellValueChanged="CellValueChanged" />
        <MasterTableView ShowFooter="true" AutoGenerateColumns="False"
            CurrentResetPageIndexAction="SetPageIndexToFirst" DataKeyNames="ID" DataSourceID="Products"
            Dir="LTR" Frame="Border" TableLayout="Auto" EditMode="Batch" BatchEditingSettings-OpenEditingEvent="Click" CommandItemDisplay="None">
                <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="ID" DataType="System.Int32"  ReadOnly="True" UniqueName="ID" />
                <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="ProductName" ReadOnly="true" HeaderText="Product" UniqueName="ProductName" />
                <telerik:GridTemplateColumn DataField="Quantity" UniqueName="Quantity" HeaderText="Quantity" DataType="System.Int32">                               
                        <%# Eval("Quantity")%>
                        <telerik:RadNumericTextBox ID="txtQuantity" runat="server" Width="40px" DataType="System.Int32"
                             NumberFormat-DecimalDigits="0" Skin="Forest">
                            <ClientEvents OnBlur="Blur" OnFocus="Focus" />
                        <telerik:RadNumericTextBox ID="TextBox2" runat="server" Width="40px" DataType="System.Int32" NumberFormat-DecimalDigits="0" Skin="Forest" ReadOnly="True">
                            <ClientEvents OnLoad="Load" />
        <PagerStyle Mode="NextPrevAndNumeric" />

    With the following javascript:
    <telerik:RadScriptBlock runat="server" ID="RadScriptBlock1">
        <script type="text/javascript">
            var sumInput = null;
            var tempValue = 0;
            function Load(sender, args) {
                sumInput = sender;
            function Blur(sender, args) {
                sumInput.set_value(tempValue + sender.get_value());
            function Focus(sender, args) {           
                tempValue = sumInput.get_value() - sender.get_value();
            function CellValueChanged(sender, args) {
                var row = args.get_row();
                var rowIndex = row.rowIndex;
                var columnName = args.get_columnUniqueName();
                var cell = args.get_cell();
                var oldValue = args.get_cellValue();
                var newValue = '' + args.get_editorValue();
                var key = '' + row.cells[0].textContent
                var hc = document.getElementById('<%= ProductHash.ClientID%>');
                if (hc.value == '') {
                    if (newValue == "0") {
                    aProducts = new Array();
                    aProducts[key] = newValue;
                else {
                    var aProducts = JSON.parse(hc.value);
                    if (aProducts == null) {
                        if (newValue == "0") {
                        aProducts = new Array();
                        aProducts[key] = newValue;
                    else {
                        aProducts[key] = newValue;
                hc.value = JSON.stringify(aProducts);

    And the following server side code:
        Protected Sub btnProcess_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
                'Retrieve total quantity from footer
                Dim footer As GridFooterItem = DirectCast(RadGrid1.MasterTableView.GetItems(GridItemType.Footer)(0), GridFooterItem)
                Dim TotalQty As String = TryCast(footer.FindControl("TextBox2"), RadNumericTextBox).Text
 some stuff
            Catch ex As Exception
            End Try
        End Sub

    Yesterday, I was able to populate TotalQty with the value from the footer, but today, it is an empty string. The footer textbox shows a number in it. Server side, I am getting access to the footer textbox, but the Text property is an empty string.

    I have no clue why it stopped working.

    Well, I found the problem.
    I had an open ticket with Telerik regarding trying to put the grid in and out of edit mode from the code behind without causing a javascript error. They recommended I do a RadGrid1.Rebind() after setting the EditMode.

    If bEditMode Then
        RadGrid1.MasterTableView.EditMode = Telerik.Web.UI.GridEditMode.Batch
        RadGrid1.MasterTableView.EditMode = Nothing
    End If

    Well, that apparently makes it so the textbox in the footer can't pass it's value back to the code behind.
    As soon as I comment out the Rebind, I gain access to the textbox in the footer.

    So, I'm back to square one again regarding putting the grid in and out of edit mode safely...
