Hi
I am using radgrid with the automatically generated popup edit form.
One of the fields displays the 'Last_Edit' date recorded in the database.
When the edit form 'UPDATE' link is clicked I want to save the current date instead of the
database value.
How can I best do this? 

Thanks for you help!

Clive

Hello Clive,

I suppose you are using a DateTimeColumn for displaying Last_Edit date. If that is the case, you can access the DatePicker in the UpdateCommand and then set its date as shown below:
cs:
protected void RadGrid1_UpdateCommand(object source, GridCommandEventArgs e) 
    { 
        if (e.Item is GridEditableItem && e.Item.IsInEditMode) 
        { 
            GridDataItem item = (GridDataItem)e.Item; 
            RadDatePicker datepicker = (RadDatePicker)item["Last_Edit"].Controls[0]; 
            datepicker.SelectedDate = System.DateTime.Today; 
            //update query 
        } 
    } 

Thanks
Princy.

Hi Clive,

Well, no matter what control you are using to enter a value for the "Last_Edit" field (e.g. a textbox), you can set its value to DateTime.Now() at runtime (as demonstrated by Shinu) and even make the control read-only, so that the value cannot be changed by the user.

Alternatively, you can use the RadGrid's ItemCommand event handler to add DateTime.Now() to the respective field after the user has submitted the edit form. However, this approach is different depending on your datasource and the way RadGrid is databound, so if you want to implement this, please provide more information.

All the best,
