Hi,

I am trying to make a GridBoundColumn in the radgrid not to be visible when in insert mode.

I was able to make the textbox for the column to behave not to be visible. But the label attached to it is still visible.

I did as below to make the textbox not to be visible in the itemdatabound event ,

if

(e.Item is GridEditFormInsertItem && e.Item.IsInEditMode)
{
GridEditFormInsertItem insertItem = (GridEditFormInsertItem)e.Item;

TextBox

txtDesc = (TextBox)insertItem["Description"].Controls[0];
txtDesc.Visible =
false;

}

How to make the label attached to it also not to be visible?
Please help. Urgent

Regards

Sujith

Hi Sujith,

I'd suggest you to use the ReadOnly property. Here is an example:

                        <telerik:GridBoundColumn  
                            DataField="MyDataField"  
                            UniqueName="MyDataField"  
                            HeaderText="MyDataField"  
                            ReadOnly="true"
                        </telerik:GridBoundColumn> 



The column will be displayed in browser mode but will not appear in the edit-form.

Hi Sujith,

Try the following code snippet to achieve the desired scenario.

CS:
  protected void RadGrid1_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e) 
    { 
        foreach (GridItem item in RadGrid1.MasterTableView.Items) 
        { 
 
            if ((item.OwnerTableView.IsItemInserted) && (!item.IsInEditMode)) 
            { 
                foreach (GridColumn col in RadGrid1.MasterTableView.RenderColumns) 
                { 
                    if ((col.UniqueName == "FirstName") && (col.ColumnType == "GridBoundColumn")) 
                    { 
                        GridBoundColumn bndCol = (GridBoundColumn)col; 
                        bndCol.ReadOnly = true
                    } 
                } 
            } 
            else if ((item.Edit) && (!item.OwnerTableView.IsItemInserted)) 
            { 
                if (item is GridEditableItem) 
                { 
                    GridEditableItem edititem = (GridEditableItem)item; 
                    foreach (GridColumn col in RadGrid1.MasterTableView.RenderColumns) 
                    { 
                        if ((col.UniqueName == "FirstName") && (col.ColumnType == "GridBoundColumn")) 
                        { 
                            GridBoundColumn bndCol = (GridBoundColumn)col; 
                            bndCol.ReadOnly = false
                        } 
 
                    } 
 
 
                } 
 
            } 
 
 
        } 
        RadGrid1.Rebind(); 
    } 


Regards
Princy.

Hi Sujith,

From what I understood hiding the headertext is not possible with auto-generated edit form type. I would suggest you to use WebUserControl custom edit form which allows you more flexible layout for the edit form.

 You can also go through the following forum discussion on this regard.
ItemCommand InitInsert Hide Columns

Thanks
