    Hi All,

    I am new using Telerik controls
    in my page i am using Radgrid controls and edit the radgrid "InPlace" mode.
    I had one template column and three GridBoundcolumn.
    In code behind how can i get the column value using

    My aspx page is below

    <telerik:RadGrid ID ="rgSkills" runat ="server" DataSourceID ="sdsEmployee"  AutoGenerateColumns="False" EnableAjax="true" OnInsertCommand ="rgSkills_InsertCommand"

    OnUpdateCommand ="rgSkills_UpdateCommand" OnNeedDataSource ="rgSkills_NeedDataSource"

    EnableValidation ="True" GridLines="None">

    <MasterTableView  GridLines ="None" DataSourceID ="sdsEmployee" DataKeyNames ="emp_skill_set_id"

    EditMode="Inplace" AutoGenerateColumns ="False" CommandItemDisplay ="Top" runat ="server"

    allowcustompaging="False" allownaturalsort="False" AllowAutomaticUpdates ="false">


    <telerik:GridTemplateColumn  DataField="Skill Description" HeaderText="Skills" >


    <asp:LinkButton id="Skills" runat="server" text='<%# Eval("Skill Description") %>'

    CommandName ="Update" />



    <telerik:GridEditCommandColumn ButtonType="ImageButton" UniqueName ="EditCommandColumn"

    EditText ="Edit" />

    <telerik:GridBoundColumn   UniqueName="Skill Description" DataField="Skill Description"

    HeaderText="Skill Set Rating" ItemStyle-Font-Size ="Smaller" >

    Hi Senthil,

    You could get the column value of the GridBoundColumn in the UpdateCommand event handler with the following code snippet:

    Protected Sub RadGrid1_UpdateCommand(source As Object, e As GridCommandEventArgs)
        Dim item As GridDataItem = TryCast(e.Item, GridDataItem)
        Dim itemValue As String = item("ColumnUniqueName").Text
    End Sub

    For more information about accessing cells and rows you could check out this online documentation article:

    I hope this helps.

     GridEditableItem editedItem = e.Item as GridEditableItem;
    String strTemp = (editedItem["ColumnUniqueName"].Controls[1] as TextBox).Text;
    String strTemp = (editedItem["ColumnUniqueName"].Controls[0] as TextBox).Text;
    Thanks, Jayesh Goyani

    Hey Jayesh,

    works like a magic, except that I had to use Controls[0], since the collection has only one control.

    Thanks again.

    ItemCreated is fired before the item is data-bound. Therefore no data is available in the cells' text or input controls. Try the same in ItemDataBound event as explained in this documentation.

    Hello Sathish,

    I am sharing the answer from your support thread regarding the differences: 

    When upgrading the Telerik version, please follow the very detailed instructions in the following help article: Upgrade to a Newer Version of Telerik® UI for ASP.NET AJAX.

    Before starting an upgrade of your project, you may find it useful to review the following resources:
    • The Known Issues and Important Changes sticky thread. It lists changes that may affect your code and known regression issues (that are usually fixed in the subsequent release). Review the information for the releases you go through so you can evaluate whether you will be affected by anything.
    • The Telerik Upgrade API Analyzer can analyze your C# code to notify you of changes between your version and the new version you want to upgrade to. It offers information as of the Q1 2012 (2012.1.225) release.
    • UI for ASP.NET AJAX Release History—reviewing the release notes for all releases you go through will let you see what has changed, what fixes, features and controls have been implemented so you are better prepared to meet your project's challenges.

    Hi Sathish,

    Can you please provide more information on your setup and scenario? Can you provide a sample code to reproduce the problem?

    Please check for any JavaScript errors in the console and also disable the AJAX if the grid is ajaxified as suggested in this article

    Get more descriptive errors by disabling AJAX?
