    Simple scenario: I want the edit form to appear above the column headers and I also want to hide the command item "row". I am not looking for a solution involving modals or placing the form outside of the radgrid.

    Here's my code so far:

    protected void RadGrid1_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (!Page.IsPostBack)
            RadGrid1.MasterTableView.IsItemInserted = true;
        GridCommandItem commandItem = RadGrid1.MasterTableView.GetItems(GridItemType.CommandItem)[0] as GridCommandItem;
        commandItem.Visible = !RadGrid1.MasterTableView.IsItemInserted;
        if (!commandItem.Visible) // If edit form is open
            GridEditFormItem editFormItem = RadGrid1.MasterTableView.GetItems(GridItemType.EditFormItem)[0] as GridEditFormItem;
            commandItem.Parent.Controls.AddAt(0, editFormItem);

    But during asynch postbacks all goes to hell: the edit form disappears.

    Hello Merritt,

    Your requirement is not supported in RadGrid and cannot be achieved without taking the edit form out of RadGrid. Doing such changes in the control structure will break the ViewState and the code used to address the editing procedures.
