    We are in the midst of converting all our Infragistics WebGrids to Telerik RadGrid.

    Can anyone point me in the direction of a similar type example as what is outlined in the attachment?

    Single Column Grid that defaults to no rows showing, but has an ADD ROW button, and when clicked the row loads. The row has a drop down in it.


    Any direction is appreciated as we're under a tight deadline for this refactoring and have over 100 Grids to switch out to Telerik.

    Hello Brad,

    You can achieve the requested scenario by binding the grid to an empty data source initially and use the CommandItem to show that Add New Record button. The grid structure should have either a TempalteColumn with a RadComboBox control as an EditItemTemplate column or use DropDownColumn. This way when you add an item a DropDown editor will be rendered in the edit form.
    Regards deleting an item you first need to choose which edit mode will you use. More about the different edit modes could be found in our documentation. Generally you can specify a column with delete buttons which allows you to delete a certain item. In case you want to perform a multiple changes to the grid data and save them at once I would recommend you to use Batch editing.

    Please give this suggestions a try and let me know about the result.

    Do you want to have your say when we set our development plans? Do you want to know when a feature you care about is added or when a bug fixed? Explore the Telerik Feedback Portal and vote to affect the priority of the items
