I'm using the latest build 2010.3.1501 (tested with SP1 too).
I use RadGridView with DomainDataSource and looks like there a bug when inserting rows.
If I subscribe to AddingNewDataItem and return new entity,
In RowEditEnded event:
* e.EditOperationType is always "Edit" instead of "Insert"
* DomainDataSource.HasChanges is always "False" instead of "True"
* and, of course. DomainDataSource.SubmitChanges() does not submit anything.

Here's the source code to reproduce:

<UserControl
    x:Class="Accellos.DataServices.WUI.FileMaintenance.Controls.Test1.MyWorkspaceControl1"
    xmlns:mt="clr-namespace:Accellos.DataServices.MT.Client.DotNet;assembly=Accellos.DataServices.MT.Client.AccellosOneServiceAsync.SL"
    xmlns:riaControls="clr-namespace:System.Windows.Controls;assembly=System.Windows.Controls.DomainServices"
    xmlns:telerik="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Controls;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView"
    >
  
    <Grid>
        <riaControls:DomainDataSource QueryName="GetAccounts" AutoLoad="True" x:Name="dds" DataContext="{Binding}">
            <riaControls:DomainDataSource.DomainContext>
                <mt:AccountDomainContext/>
            </riaControls:DomainDataSource.DomainContext>
  
            <riaControls:DomainDataSource.SortDescriptors>
                <riaControls:SortDescriptor PropertyPath="Id" />
            </riaControls:DomainDataSource.SortDescriptors>
        </riaControls:DomainDataSource>
  
        <telerik:RadGridView x:Name="gridView1" AutoGenerateColumns="True" ItemsSource="{Binding Data, ElementName=dds}"/>
    </Grid>
</UserControl>

using System;
using Accellos.DataServices.MT.Client.DotNet;
using Accellos.DataServices.MT.Common.DTO;
using Accellos.Platform.Silverlight.Workspace;
using Telerik.Windows.Controls;
using Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView;
  
namespace Accellos.DataServices.WUI.FileMaintenance.Controls.Test1
{
    public partial class MyWorkspaceControl1
    {
        #region Constructor
        public MyWorkspaceControl1(IWorkspace workspace)
        {
            InitializeComponent();
  
            if (workspace == null)
                throw new ArgumentNullException("workspace");
  
            DataServicesApplication application = (DataServicesApplication)workspace.WorkspaceContainer.GetApplicationById(DataServicesApplication.ApplicationId);
            ((AccountDomainClient)dds.DomainContext.DomainClient).MiddleTierClient = application.CreateMiddleTierServiceClient();
  
            gridView1.AddingNewDataItem +=
                delegate(object sender, GridViewAddingNewEventArgs e)
                    {
                        e.NewObject = new Account();
                    };
  
            gridView1.RowEditEnded +=
                delegate(object o, GridViewRowEditEndedEventArgs e)
                {
                    if (e.EditAction != GridViewEditAction.Commit)
                    {
                        if (!dds.IsSubmittingChanges)
                            dds.RejectChanges();
  
                        return;
                    }
  
                    // Is "Edit" instead of "Insert" when inserting
                    GridViewEditOperationType operation = e.EditOperationType;
                    // Always "False" when inserting
                    bool hasChanges = dds.HasChanges;
  
                    // When inserting does not submit any changes
                    if (!dds.IsSubmittingChanges)
                        dds.SubmitChanges();
                };
        }
        #endregion
    }
}

If I comment AddingNewDataItem everything works as expected.

Does anyone knows if there any workaround ?

Hi Serhiy Volhushyn,


Indeed you are right about the behavior of RadGridView control. Due to the fact that IEditableCollectionView doesn't have an overload of the AddNew() method which accepts custom object RadGridView actually adds item to the collection and put this item into edit mode (which already is an edit operation). However you could workaround this by using RadGridView insert row UI (RadGridView.ShowInsertRow = true).
We are aware about the problem with RadGridView + DomainDataSource and adding new items (HasChanges is always false). There are two possible ways to solve it:

1. Use RadDomainDataSource instead of DomainDataSource - here you could find a little bit more information about CRUD operations with RadDomainDataSource.
2. You could just add the edited item to DomainDataSource collection:

Copy Code

// just attach the edited item to DomainDataSource

this.rdds.DataView.Add(e.EditedItem);


I'm attaching my sample application for a reference.


All the best,

Thank you for the hint.
When I use RadDomainDataSource it fixes dds.HasChanges problem and creates new record in database when dds.SubmitChanges()

But e.EditOperationType is still "Edit" instead of "Insert".

Hello Serhiy Volhushyn,

We are aware about this behavior, but there is no other way to add item different from the default one (created by parameterless constructor). RadGridView uses IEditableCollectionView interface to deal with editing (adding) operations.
Due to the fact that IEditableCollectionView doesn't have an overload of the AddNew() method which accepts custom object RadGridView actually adds item to the collection and put this item into edit mode (which already is an edit operation). However you could work around this by using RadGridView insert row UI (RadGridView.ShowInsertRow = true).

Thank you for the reply.
I cannot use insert row UI, but I found a workaround:

private GridViewEditOperationType _editOperationType = GridViewEditOperationType.Edit;
  
  
private void OnEntityGridViewBeginningEdit(object sender, GridViewBeginningEditRoutedEventArgs e)
{
    _editOperationType = GridViewEditOperationType.Edit;
}
  
private void OnEntityGridViewAddingNewDataItem(object sender, GridViewAddingNewEventArgs e)
{
    e.NewObject = CreateEmptyEntity();
  
    _editOperationType = GridViewEditOperationType.Insert;
}
