Hi,

One of my RadGrid column has a lot of data.  In order to allow user to edit it better, I want to open a RadWindow and let user to edit the data there.  I have created a custom GridViewDataColumn, where I can open up a new radWindow in
CreateCellEditElement override.  And I am able to bind the cell content with the radWindow.  However,

RowEditEnded event is fired right after radWindow is shown.

Is there any way that I can keep the curren cell / row in the edit mode until the popup window is closed?  If this is impossible, any suggestion on how to implement something like this?

Thanks in advance,

Jeffery

Hello Jeffery,

I believe the edit ended event is raised because the newly opened window steals the focus from RadGridView. This triggers the commit edit logic.

So a possible  solution would be to use something ( e.g. a custom user control ) which does not show as modal  and keeps the focus inside the cell.

You may also try the RadGridView.ActionOnLostFocus = None - this may prevent the RadGridView to try committing when the popup is shown.

All the best,

I went with ActionOnLostFocus = None approach.  It works very well for us.  Thanks a lot.
