Hi erveryone,

I wonder if there is any way to create a column in my grid, which is a link or a button or anything that is done by clicking a download of a file (.jpg, .doc, .txt ...) that is located in a folder of my solution. I emphasize that I have saved the file path in the database and I can load it in the column, if necessary.

Thanks

Hello,

<telerik:RadGrid ID="RadGrid3" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="false" OnNeedDataSource="RadGrid3_NeedDataSource"
           OnItemDataBound="RadGrid3_ItemDataBound" OnItemCommand="RadGrid3_ItemCommand">
           <MasterTableView DataKeyNames="ID" CommandItemDisplay="Top">
               <Columns>
                   <telerik:GridBoundColumn HeaderText="ID" DataField="ID" UniqueName="ID">
                   </telerik:GridBoundColumn>
                   <telerik:GridBoundColumn HeaderText="Name" DataField="Name" UniqueName="Name">
                   </telerik:GridBoundColumn>
                   <telerik:GridTemplateColumn>
                       <ItemTemplate>
                           <asp:LinkButton ID="LinkButton1" runat="server" CommandName="DownloadMyFile" Text='<%# Eval("path") %>' CommandArgument='<%# Eval("path") %>'></asp:LinkButton>
                       </ItemTemplate>
                   </telerik:GridTemplateColumn>
               </Columns>
           </MasterTableView>
       </telerik:RadGrid>

protected void RadGrid3_ItemCommand(object sender, GridCommandEventArgs e)
   {
       if (e.CommandName == "DownloadMyFile")
       {
           GridDataItem item = e.Item as GridDataItem;
           // ACCESS KEy
           string strID = item.GetDataKeyValue("ID").ToString();
           //ACCESS COLUMN
           string strName = item["Name"].Text;
 
           // Download File
           string path = Server.MapPath("~/images/" + e.CommandArgument);
           string attachment = "attachment; filename=" + e.CommandArgument;
           Response.Clear();
           Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", attachment);
           Response.ContentType = "image/jpeg";
           Response.WriteFile(path);
           Response.End();
       }
   }
 
 
protected void RadGrid3_NeedDataSource(object sender, GridNeedDataSourceEventArgs e)
   {
 
       dynamic data = new[] {
               new { ID = 1, Name ="Name1",path="1.jpg"},
               new { ID = 2, Name = "Name2",path="2.jpg"},
               new { ID = 3, Name = "Name3",path="3.jpg"}
           };
       RadGrid3.DataSource = data;
 
 
   }


// IF YOUR GRID AJAXIFIED THEN ADD ALSO ADD BELOW CODE.
<telerik:RadAjaxManager ID="RadAjaxManager1" runat="server">
       <ClientEvents OnRequestStart="onRequestStart" />
       <AjaxSettings>
           <telerik:AjaxSetting AjaxControlID="RadGrid3">
               <UpdatedControls>
                   <telerik:AjaxUpdatedControl ControlID="RadGrid3" />
               </UpdatedControls>
           </telerik:AjaxSetting>
       </AjaxSettings>
       </telerik:RadAjaxManager>

function onRequestStart(sender, args) {
               if (args.get_eventTarget().indexOf("LinkButton1") >= 0) {
                   args.set_enableAjax(false);
               }
           }

Hello Jayesh,

Is there anyway you could provide a solution to upload the files to the same path to the associated folder as well, that way we have the whole solution for upload and download.

Thanks,
Bill

Please check out the following demo to get a practical idea of downloading and uploading files using a RadGrid:
