    I am using the "Form template edit form" with EditMode="PopUp" to edit rows in my grid (it uses my ascx for a custom "edit" popup). Normally the user clicks the "Update" button to save the data (with a CommandName of Update). But when the user clicks the "OK" button on the main page, I want to save the values in the current edit popup (if there is one open). How do I invoke the "Update" for the open popup when someone hits just a button on the main page?

    Hi Jay,

    You can access controls in edit form in the click event of the button and then perform the Update operation.

    protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) 
            foreach (GridEditFormItem editform in RadGrid1.MasterTableView.GetItems(GridItemType.EditFormItem)) 
                if (editform.IsInEditMode) 
                   //access controls here
                    TextBox txtbx = (TextBox)editform.FindControl("TextBox1"); 
                  //Perform Update operation
