I see how to use CaptionFormatString and CaptionDataField to edit the caption on the popup edit form.

How do you set the caption when you are doing an insert using the popup edit form?

Thanks,

Paul

Hi Paul,

Unfortunately, you cannot include this when you are inserting a new item.

You're saying there's no way to get a handle on the popup caption to set it dynamically?  It's small, but surprising if it's not available.

Hello Steve,

Try out the following code to modify the CaptionFormatString for an Edit/Insert form dynamically.
cs:
 protected void RadGrid1_ItemCommand(object source, GridCommandEventArgs e) 
    { 
        if (e.CommandName == RadGrid.EditCommandName) 
         { 
             e.Item.OwnerTableView.EditFormSettings.CaptionDataField = "Name"
             e.Item.OwnerTableView.EditFormSettings.CaptionFormatString = "Edit Details for {0} Here"
         } 
        else if(e.CommandName==RadGrid.InitInsertCommandName) 
         { 
             //CaptionDataField cannot be set for an InsertForm since its a general form  
             e.Item.OwnerTableView.EditFormSettings.CaptionFormatString = "Insert Details Here"
         } 

Thanks
Princy.

For insert, that does absolutely nothing.  Setting the text on edit is not the problem.

Is there a reason why this has not been added?  As it does work, but only after calling the add a second time.
