Hello Sumanth,

You can try the following code to access the control inside NoRecordsItemTemplate.

ASPX:
<NoRecordsTemplate>
    <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text="No records"></asp:Label>
</NoRecordsTemplate>

C#:
protected void RadGrid1_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        GridNoRecordsItem norecordItem = (GridNoRecordsItem)RadGrid1.MasterTableView.GetItems(GridItemType.NoRecordsItem)[0];
        Label lbl = (Label)norecordItem.FindControl("Label1");
    }

Thanks,
Princy.

Does this have to be on Pre_Render?  I get IndexOutOfRangeException when I try to use this during the NeedDataSource event.

Hello Sumanth,

You cannot use Princy's approach on NeedDataSource as the item is not yet created.
Another option is to handle Item created instead of PreRender:
protected void Grid1_ItemCreated(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)
    {
        if (e.Item is GridNoRecordsItem)
        
        }
    }

Hi all,
I need to enable a RadButton in <NoRecordsTemplate>

<NoRecordsTemplate>
    <telerik:RadButton ID="BrokerDetailsContactNoRecordAdd" runat="server" Text="Add new Contact" Enabled="false"
        OnClientClicked="BrokerDetailsContactAddOnClick" AutoPostBack="false" style="margin: 10px 0 0 10px;">
            <Icon PrimaryIconCssClass="rbAdd" PrimaryIconLeft="4" PrimaryIconTop="4" />
    </telerik:RadButton>
</NoRecordsTemplate>

Over OnPreRender in the MasterTabelView

protected void BrokerDetailsContactGridPreRender(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        GridNoRecordsItem gridContactAdd = (GridNoRecordsItem)BrokerDetailsContactGrid.MasterTableView.GetItems(GridItemType.NoRecordsItem)[0];
         RadButton buttonContactAdd = (RadButton)gridContactAdd.FindControl("BrokerDetailsContactNoRecordAdd");
         buttonContactAdd.Enabled = true;
    }

... but the debugger returned the following error message

IndexOutOfRangeException was unhandled by user code / Index was outside the bounds of the array

The RadGrid is inside a RadMultiPage/RadPageView

Any ideas ?
Best regards

Hi,

Try enabling the RadButton in ItemCreated event. Please take a look into the following code snippet.

C#:
protected void RadGrid1_ItemCreated(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.Item is GridNoRecordsItem)
    {
        GridNoRecordsItem item = (GridNoRecordsItem)e.Item;
        RadButton Button1 = (RadButton)item.FindControl("BrokerDetailsContactNoRecordAdd");
        Button1.Enabled = true;
    }
}

Thanks,
Princy.

Hi Princy,

thx for the fast reply.

protected void BrokerDetailsContactGridOnItemCreated(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)
        {
            if (e.Item is GridNoRecordsItem)
            {
                GridNoRecordsItem gridContactAdd = (GridNoRecordsItem)e.Item;
                RadButton buttonContactAdd = (RadButton)gridContactAdd.FindControl("BrokerDetailsContactNoRecordAdd");
                buttonContactAdd.Enabled = true;
                BrokerDetailsEditButton.Enabled = false;
            }
        }

It looks like that the if clause are not working. BrokerDetailsEditButton.Enabled=false works outside the if clause.

regards
Andreas

Hi,

From your code I could find only a RadButton in the NoRecordTemplate. Please make sure that the 'BrokerDetailsEditButton' is also inside the NoRecordTemplate.

Please provide the markup for the 'BrokerDetailsEditButton' for further assistance.

Thanks,
Princy.

Hi,

I only placed the 'BrokerDetailsEditButton' into the if clause for testing. The BrokerDetailsContactNoRecordAdd button doesn´t enable.

<telerik:RadMultiPage ID="BrokerDetailsMultiPage" runat="server" SelectedIndex="0" style="margin: 0 10px 10px 10px;">
                <telerik:RadPageView ID="BrokerDetailsContactPageView" runat="server">
                    <telerik:RadGrid ID="BrokerDetailsContactGrid" runat="server" DataSourceID="BrokerContactEDS" GridLines="None" Height="238px" Width="100%"
                        AllowPaging="True" PageSize="25" AllowSorting="True" AutoGenerateColumns="False" ShowStatusBar="True"
                        OnItemCreated="BrokerDetailsContactGridOnItemCreated"
                        EnableHeaderContextMenu="True" EnableHeaderContextFilterMenu="True" AllowFilteringByColumn="True">
                        <PagerStyle AlwaysVisible="true" />
                        <ClientSettings EnableRowHoverStyle="true" EnablePostBackOnRowClick="false">
                            <ClientEvents OnRowContextMenu="BrokerDetailsContactGridRowContextMenu" OnRowClick="BrokerDetailsContactGridOnRowClick"
                                OnScroll="handleScrolling" />
                            <Scrolling AllowScroll="true" UseStaticHeaders="true" SaveScrollPosition="true" />
                            <Selecting AllowRowSelect="true" />
                        </ClientSettings>
                        <GroupingSettings CaseSensitive="false" />
                        <MasterTableView runat="server" DataSourceID="BrokerContactEDS" Width="100%"
                            AllowFilteringByColumn="true" IsFilterItemExpanded="false" ShowHeadersWhenNoRecords="false"
                            DataKeyNames="BmsBrokerID, BmsBrokerGroupID, BmsBrokerContactID"
                            ClientDataKeyNames="BmsBrokerID, BmsBrokerGroupID, BmsBrokerContactID">
                            <NoRecordsTemplate>
                                <telerik:RadButton ID="BrokerDetailsContactNoRecordAdd" runat="server" Text="Add new Contact" Enabled="true"
                                    OnClientClicked="BrokerDetailsContactAddOnClick" AutoPostBack="false" style="margin: 10px 0 0 10px;">
                                    <Icon PrimaryIconCssClass="rbAdd" PrimaryIconLeft="4" PrimaryIconTop="4" />
                                </telerik:RadButton>
                            </NoRecordsTemplate>
                            <PagerTemplate>
                                <div style="line-height: 24px; padding-right: 10px; float: right;">
                                    Total records: <%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "Paging.DataSourceCount") %>
                                </div>
                            </PagerTemplate>
                            <Columns>

This is the code where my <NoRecordsTemplate> is placed.

Thx
Andreas

Solution or Bug ?

ShowHeadersWhenNoRecords="false"

MUST be set to "true" and than the code works :-(

Hello Andreas,

If ShowHeadersWhenNoRecords Property is set to true (the default) GridNoRecordsItem is used to display no records template. This item is the only one displayed in the GridTableView in this case. Since you set ShowHeadersWhenNoRecords to false, GridNoRecordsItem was not accessible and showed error.

Thanks,
Princy.

Hi.  A followup question regarding controls in a NoRecordsTemplate.  I have a RadButton inside a NoRecordsTemplate, and in its OnClick code-behind, I need it to access other controls (RadTextBoxes) also in the NoRecordsTemplate.  However, they are not accessible, and I don't know how to find them in code.  Can you help?

Here's my markup of the NoRecordsTemplate in the RadGrid:
<NoRecordsTemplate>
    <div style="padding: 20px 20px 20px 20px; height: 300px;">
        <div style="float: left;">
            <h4>
                No patient was found with the MRN
                <asp:Label ID="lblMRN" runat="server" Text="'mrn'" Font-Bold="True"></asp:Label></h4>
            Enter new patient information below:
            <br />
            <br />
            <table>
                <tr>
                    <td class="tablelabel">
                        Last Name:

                    </td>
                </tr>

            </table>
            <br />
            <telerik:RadButton ID="rbtnAcceptNewPatient" runat="server" Text="Accept" OnClientClicking="StandardConfirm" OnClick="rbtnAcceptNewPatient_Click" TabIndex="5">
                <Icon PrimaryIconCssClass="rbOk" PrimaryIconLeft="4" PrimaryIconTop="4" />
            </telerik:RadButton>

            </telerik:RadButton>
        </div>
    </div>
</NoRecordsTemplate>

and this in the code-behind:
protected void rbtnAcceptNewPatient_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    Patient pt = new Patient();
    pt.AddPatient(rtbMRN.Text, TaljacUtilities.NameCapitalization(rtbLastName.Text), TaljacUtilities.NameCapitalization(rtbFirstName.Text), rdpDOB.Value);
}

Thanks!!

Hi,

Try the following code snippet to access the other controls in the NoRecordsTemplate on a RadButton Click.

C#:
protected void rbtnAcceptNewPatient_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    RadButton Button = (RadButton)sender;
    GridNoRecordsItem item = (GridNoRecordsItem)Button.NamingContainer;
    RadTextBox txtbox = (RadTextBox)item.FindControl("rtbLastName");   // accessing the RadTextBox
}

Note: Please set the CausesValidation property of RadButton to "false". Check this help documentation for details.

Thanks,
Princy.
