Hi
      I am using rad grid, which is having the functionality of updating and deleting. There are lot of table conneted with the grid.

Say example, i used Table1 to bind the grid initially. But i used some other table data information to view and bind the edit form.
A lot of table data to be used to bind the controls of EditForm. There i used to loop dataset to check the  condition and bind the data with relevant control. But some of the controls need to bind directly without condition checking..

Since the informations are related from different tables or procedures which would be the best way to bind the data with the control  for the edit form.


-Thanks

Hello John,

I think it depends on your conventions about how to extract the data from the source.

In case you store it in a DataSet, the best option would be to bind the relevant table to the grid initially and then fetch the data for the edit form from the dataset at a later stage of the page lifecycle (i.e. editing operation).

If you get the records for the non-editable grid only on initial load, you can perform a second query to the source when the edit form is about to be loaded and then populate it. This can be done inside the ItemDataBound server event of the grid when e.Item is GridEditableItem && e.Item.IsInEditMode condition is met.
