Hi -

I'm using VS 2008 and it's entity framework.  Is it possible to use the in-line editing (Grid / Automatic Operations) with entity framework?, like in the example:

I have been playing around with it and can't get anything to work but for poulating the grid and editing the field.  I have an edit and delete button and the CommandItemDisplay is set to "Top".  I need some assitance in order to get the insert working and the textbox in the correct spot.  I'm not sure if I need behind code or if my html page is not setup correctly. 

Here is my code block:

<%@ Page Title="" Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/Pages/Master.Master" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="RadGridInLineTest2.aspx.cs" Inherits="TelerikTest.Pages.RadGridInLineTest2" %> 
<%@ MasterType VirtualPath="~/Pages/Master.Master" %>   
<%@ Register Assembly="System.Web.Entity, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089"

  <asp:Panel ID="Panel2" runat="server"

                  DefaultContainerName="AllDataModels" EntitySetName="lkup_ApplyOffset" EnableDelete="true" 
                  EnableInsert="true" EnableUpdate="true">  
                <asp:CustomValidator ID="customValidator" runat="server" ErrorMessage="CustomValidator" 
                  style="z-index:1; position:absolute; top:52px; left:500px; height: 61px; width: 283px;"></asp:CustomValidator> 
  <telerik:RadCodeBlock ID="RadCodeBlock1" runat="server">  
      <script type="text/javascript">  
      function RowDblClick(sender, eventArgs)  

My goal is to be able to modify the Lookup_Value column within the grid itself (add/edit/delete) like the demo example.  I've attached a screen shot of the grid in editing mode.  The editing is done on another line than the record is shown in the grid and it is not what I would consider "In-Line". 

So, what I'd like help with is:
1. Get the Add New Record to work
2. Get the Deleting to work
3. Get the in-line to be in the correct spot, ...on the same row as the record.

Some assistance would be a big help.

Hi Wendy,

In order to change RadGrid's edit form type from EditForm to InPlace you should use MasterTableView's EditMode property.

Also I have noticed that you are using an incorrect ajaxsification scheme. As you may know you cannot mix RadAjaxManager, RadAjaxPanels and UpdatePanels on a single page. Therefore you should choose to use only one type of those controls.

Kind regards,
the Telerik team
