    Hi, I have a situation like this (see the attach image), and I have some dilemma.

    I have in my page several radgrids, populated with the Advanced Databinding. I use OnNeedDataSource correctly for taking data from my database.

    In my scenario the user can press on the "Add row" button and, through a EditForm, create a new row for the grid. The user can see this row, but this row is not saved immediatly on the database. I want to save this new row (and other changes and informations in the page) only after pressing the Save button.

    But I have encountered many problems to do this. For example I have some difficulties with managing rebinds and postback... So, I'm here to ask you if exist some "Best practice" to do this kind of stuff.

    Thank you for your attention.

    Hello Francesco,

    Although that there is no built-in option for achieving such requirement, you can refer to the following example:
    <telerik:RadCodeBlock ID="RadCodeBlock1" runat="server">
        <script type="text/javascript">
            function saveAll() {
                var grid1 = $find("<%=RadGrid1.ClientID%>");
                var grid2 = $find("<%=RadGrid2.ClientID%>");
                var batchManager1 = grid1.get_batchEditingManager();
                var batchManager2 = grid2.get_batchEditingManager();
                var hasChanges = batchManager1.hasChanges(grid1.get_masterTableView()) || batchManager2.hasChanges(grid2.get_masterTableView());
                if (hasChanges) {
                    batchManager1.saveTableChanges([grid1.get_masterTableView(), grid2.get_masterTableView()]);
                } else {
                    var ajaxPanel = $find("<%=RadAjaxPanel1.ClientID%>");
    <telerik:RadAjaxPanel runat="server" ID="RadAjaxPanel1" OnAjaxRequest="RadAjaxPanel1_AjaxRequest">
        <telerik:RadButton runat="server" ID="RadButton1" AutoPostBack="false" Text="Save all" OnClientClicked="saveAll"></telerik:RadButton>
        <telerik:RadTextBox runat="server" ID="RadTextBox1"></telerik:RadTextBox>
        <telerik:RadGrid runat="server" ID="RadGrid1" Width="200px" OnNeedDataSource="RadGrid1_NeedDataSource" OnBatchEditCommand="RadGrid1_BatchEditCommand">
            <MasterTableView EditMode="Batch">
        <telerik:RadGrid runat="server" ID="RadGrid2" Width="200px" OnNeedDataSource="RadGrid1_NeedDataSource" OnBatchEditCommand="RadGrid2_BatchEditCommand">
            <MasterTableView EditMode="Batch">

    And the code-behind:
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    protected void RadGrid1_NeedDataSource(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.GridNeedDataSourceEventArgs e)
        DataTable table = new DataTable();
        table.Columns.Add("ID", typeof(int));
        for (int i = 0; i < 3; i++)
        (sender as RadGrid).DataSource = table;
    protected void RadAjaxPanel1_AjaxRequest(object sender, AjaxRequestEventArgs e)
        //save the other controls data
    protected void RadGrid1_BatchEditCommand(object sender, GridBatchEditingEventArgs e)
    protected void RadGrid2_BatchEditCommand(object sender, GridBatchEditingEventArgs e)

    Hope this helps.
