I have an application in MVC in which i am using telerik grid to display the record.I am using the entity model for it. In case of edit and add operation i want to use the popup mode but i am not able to perform any customization:Hiding any column in edit mode,make some column uneditable, showing the proper validation message and maintain the edit mode ,adding any custom field apart from the database table.

In the demo a class model is used but i donot want to perform the binding through a class model but the entity framework model.

Please provide me the way to perform customization in edit/add operation using popup in telerik grid.

I am interested in a similar approach.

Below is my Grid...

                            .Columns(COL =>
                                COL.Bound(UM => UM.UserName).Width(200).Title("User Name");
                                COL.Bound(UM => UM.Email).Width(200).Title("Email");
                                COL.Bound(UM => UM.CreateDate).Width(80).Title("Creation Date").Format("{0:dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm}").ReadOnly();
                                COL.Bound(UM => UM.LastLoginDate).Width(80).Title("Last Login Date").Format("{0:dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm}").ReadOnly();
                                COL.Bound(UM => UM.UserId).Hidden(true).ClientTemplate(Html.ActionLink("Edit", "EditUser", "UserController", new { lgUserId = "<#= UserId #>" }).ToHtmlString()).Title("Edit");
                            .DataKeys(DK => DK.Add(UM => UM.UserId))
                            .DataBinding(DB => DB.Ajax().Select("_SelectUsers", "Configuration")
                                                        .Update("_UpdateUsers", "Configuration"))
                            .Pageable(PAGE => PAGE.PageSize(Common.Constants.Literals.GridPageSize).Position(Common.Constants.Literals.GridPagerPosition))
                            .Sortable(SORT => SORT.OrderBy(OB => OB.Add(UM => UM.UserName)).SortMode(GridSortMode.SingleColumn))

  1. I would like my ClientTemplate ActionLink to open a PopUp  via the View controller of EditUser.
  2. This Popup would be a Telerik Window defined in the MasterPage markup.
  3. I would like to populate the Telerik Popup using the Grid Data Model.

Do you have any examples that would help in this undertaking?

Kind Regards

Hello hkdave95,

In order to achieve your goal, you need to bind the grid with ajax editing and then to add custom buttons in a column template. Next you need to hook up to client event which will redirect to your Action method (for instance, with JQuery post). Last in success callback you need to get the HTML, rendered from the partial view, and place it into the window content.

For your convenience I have attached a sample test project, which implement the suggested approach.
