How to get Radgrid dropdown list template column selected value  in InsertCommand?


I used below, doesn't work.  Also, how to make the text filter work for a dropdownlist column?

 

 

 

DropDownList dl;

 

 

dl = newItem[

 

"Language"].Controls[0] as DropDownList;

 

 

 

 

String SelectLanguageID = dl.SelectedValue;

 

 

 

----------------------------------------------------------------
<
telerik:GridTemplateColumn HeaderText="Language" UniqueName="Language" 

 

 

 

AutoPostBackOnFilter="true" CurrentFilterFunction="Contains"

 

 

 

ShowFilterIcon="false" FilterControlWidth="200px" >

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

<EditItemTemplate> 

 

 

 

<asp:DropDownList ID="ddlLanguage" runat="server"> 

 

 

 

</asp:DropDownList> 

 

 

 

</EditItemTemplate> 

 

 

 

<FooterTemplate> 

 

 

 

<asp:Label ID="lblLanguage" runat="server">

 

 

 

 

 

</asp:Label> 

 

 

 

</FooterTemplate> 

 

 

 

<ItemTemplate>

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

</ItemTemplate>

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

</telerik:GridTemplateColumn>


Thanks!

better?

I know how to do it in code behind - I do all my IO in code - but that isn't what the poster is asking

anyway - to do it in code behind
on an ItemCommand event
if e.CommandName is "PerformInsert"
cast e.Item as GridDataItem
cast e.item("unique name").Controls(0) as RadComboBox (I used a Rad Combo Box, not a drop down list)
the rad combo box selected value I passed into the insert method

hope that helps

Thanks.

It won't recognize the item in e.item["unique name"].Controls(0) as DropDownList

But I tried below, it works.

 

GridEditableItem editedItem = (GridEditableItem)e.Item;

 

 

 

DropDownList dl;

 

 

dl = (

DropDownList)editedItem.FindControl("ddlLanguage");


The filter for the dropdown column still doesn't work for me.

Hi JJ,

Try setting the DataField property of the column. You can refer to the below article for more information:

Hi Jayesh Goyani,

I converted the code to VB but it doesn´t work, can you tell me why?
In New (), it tells me "Type Expected"!

Dim data As dynamic = New () {
                New With { Key .ID = 1, Key .Name = "Name1" },
                New With { Key .ID = 2, Key .Name = "Name2" },
                New With { Key .ID = 3, Key .Name = "Name3" },
                New With { Key .ID = 4, Key .Name = "Name4" },
                New With { Key .ID = 5, Key .Name = "Name5" }}
DropDownList1.DataSource = data

Thank you,
João

Hi João,

You can use the following approach to create a dummy source:
DropDownList1.DataSource = Enumerable.Range(0, 5).[Select](Function(x) New With {.ID = x, .Name = "Name " & x})
DropDownList1.DataTextField = "Name"
DropDownList1.DataValueField = "ID"
DropDownList1.DataBind()

Hope this helps.

Eyup
