Hi,

I am using the RadGrid. I need to select a row (not only the text of the row) and call a method (server-side). I don't know how to do it.

I konw how to call a method (client-side) : 

protected void RadGridFlashLines_ItemCreated(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e){
if (e.Item.DataItem != null){
if (e.Item is GridDataItem){

e.Item.Attributes[

"href"] = "#";

e.Item.Attributes[

"onclick"] = String.Format("return ShowEditForm('{0}','{1}');", ((Flash)e.Item.DataItem).Fla_Id, e.Item.ItemIndex);
}} }

I would like instead, to call, for example, a method name DisplayElementSelected() (server-side). Is it possible with the RadGrid component ?

Thank you in advance,

Hi Suzi,

This requirement is easily implemented in RadGrid, but it requires a totally different approach. If you need to always call a server-side method on row select, here are the steps you need to take:

1. Allow row select:

RadGrid1.ClientSettings.Selecting.AllowRowSelect = true;

2. Enable postback on row click:

RadGrid1.ClientSettings.EnablePostBackOnRowClick = true;

Attach to the server-side ItemCommand event of your RadGrid and check for the "RowClick" command name. Your custom method call goes there:

void RadGrid1_ItemCommand(object source, GridCommandEventArgs e) 
    if (e.CommandName == "RowClick"
    { 
        //your custom method call here 
    }
