How do you add a custom button to a column?

I've been searching the website and found a few things that are close to what I'm trying to do. I'm still pretty new to all this, and didn't completely understand it.

I have a Rad Grid pulling in registration data from a database. I want to add another column that contains a button that will call an "unregister Event". On the click event, I want to right code that unregisters the user.

What is the most efficient way to get this done?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello,


You can either use the GridButtonColumn or GridTemplateColumn with Button inside. Then set the CommandName for the column/button and check for the CommandName in ItemCommand event.

Using ButtonColumn:
<telerik:GridButtonColumn CommandName="unregister" Text="Unregister ">
</telerik:GridButtonColumn>


Using TemplateColumn:
<telerik:GridTemplateColumn>
    <ItemTemplate>
        <asp:Button ID="Button1" CommandName="unregister" runat="server" Text="Unregister" />
    </ItemTemplate>
</telerik:GridTemplateColumn>

<telerik:GridButtonColumn ButtonType="PushButton" CommandName="Unregister" ConfirmDialogType="RadWindow" ConfirmText="Are you sure you want to unregister?" ConfirmTitle="Unregister Confirmation" HeaderButtonType="TextButton" Text="Unregister" UniqueName="Unregister">
</telerik:GridButtonColumn>

I had gotten this far.

How do I create a click event for the button in the codebehind? I'm assuming I have to "find" the button first and would the click event be something like:

RadGrid1_Unregister

Thanks again for answering my question, any further help would be appreciated.

Hello Strategon,

You can handle the button command in the grid ItemCommand server-side event:

protected void RadGrid1_ItemCommand(object sender, GridCommandEventArgs e)
{
    if(e.CommandName == "Unregister")
    {
        GridDataItem currentItem = e.Item as GridDataItem;
        //your code here
    }
}
