    I am searching for the faster method to do an order input.
    As this is a very common request, I suppose that Telerik has already some idea on the best optimized solution.

    I need to enter a variable number of order items, each line being
    - a radCombobox to select a product, selecting the product should fill next fields with default alue
    - a Price non editable display box
    -  an editable quantity input box with a default value of 1
    -  a non editable bow with total=price*quantity

    A button sould allow adding a new order line, anoter suppressing a line (just as in RadUpload)

    Products/Prices come from a very large table which necessitate calling a web service to find the product with its name.

    Users should see the grand total of order refreshed after any change in quantity or product, they could change product and quantity without having to click a button: simply entering the new value.

    I am puzzled should I use RadInput controls with lot of javascript or RadGrid.

    With radinput I get very fast process, but difficulty is addig a new row (how to add a radCombobox clientside ?) and reading the order lines server side when order is finshed.
    With RadGrid, I need to click lot of button to go insert/edit mode and the various call back are slow because the full page lifecycle is slow.

    Thanks for help.
