    I noticed this change here:

    We were previously using this property so that our insert item would show at all times.  In this case, our RadListView should have the InsertItemTemplate exposed at all times but after upgrading from the Q1 to Q2 release, the fix which disables this behavior in Q2 changes the way the ListView control performs.  What is the recommended way to always show the InsertItemTemplate?  We have several pages which are using several instances of the RadListView control, all of which we want the InsertItem available at all times.

    Hi Ben,

    The recommended approach is to always check if RadListView.InsertItem is null and then call ShowInsertItem(), for example in PreRender:

    protected void Page_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (RadListView1.InsertItem == null)

    This doesn't work for me - the InsertItemTemplate is never shown. What am I missing?

    <telerik:RadListView runat="server" ID="lvSuspend" ItemPlaceholderID="CustomersContainer"
        AllowMultiItemEdit="true" InsertItemPosition="LastItem"
            <asp:PlaceHolder ID="CustomersContainer" runat="server" />

    The answer is binding to null. There seems to be difference with the Telerik List View and the ASP one wrt Insert/Empty template.

    When binding to null/empty collection using DataBind():

    • Shows Layout Template
    • Show Insert Template
    • Doesn't show Empty Template

    • Shows Empty template only

    The Insert Item will only appear for the Telerik List View when binding to an empty collection with above Pre_Render code.
