We are using a user control for editing in our RadGrid. Whenever the edit link is clicked, it appears the grid goes back to the datasource and pulls all of the items and then filters to list to the edit item.
For us recreating that entire list can sometimes be a costly, multiple hits to the DB for security privilege checking, validations as to whether an item can be deleted, etc. This is especially painful when its simply going to be filtered down to one item. Is there any event, etc. where I could step in and just provide the single item that is needed? The datakey is set on the grid so I could look up just the single (entity in this case) that is needed.
