    I have simplified it to a ID field and a single XML field for testing. I tried RadUpload and AyncUpload in templates. Have tried gridattachmentcolumn. It will create records, allow me to select the file but it does not upload anything to the XML field/column in the table. So, I have started over and I will place the page here. Currently nothing in code behind.

    If you can please help me to do this I would appreciate it. I am novice and taking courses, but already working for a company while attending school.


    I already know that the SQLDatasource parameter type "Object" is wrong for XML. How to change that SqlDataSource insert and update parameter in code behind? Is that a good strategy? I have tried other types in the SQLDataSource control and have tried to figure out how to make parameters for the SQLDataSource control in code behind but no luck.

    Ultimately, I would like to upload the small SVG files to the sql server table and view them within the Radgrid. I seem to have some luck using HTML Object tag in the <ItemTemplate> but cannot test it because I have yet to be able to upload one of the SVG files to the table.

    I also had luck setting it up to upload images and view them in a different page. Just cannot figure out how to do this with svg files. 


    Please help. Since I am learning, a very thorough explanation and example would be appreciated. I have had no luck searching the examples, documentation etc... available here and on searching Google. I have tried a lot of stuff and now pulling my hair out!

    Hello Jerry,

    In order to implement the behavior you should consider using GridBinaryImageColumn. Check out the following article that describes the column in more details.

    Moreover, you can see the behavior in action in the following online example.
