    I have a radgrid on my form and several text and combo boxes.
    My intent is to update related boxes as soon as radgrid selection changes.
    For that I use RadAjaxManager and set relations like
    <telerik:AjaxSetting AjaxControlID="rgMain">
                   <telerik:AjaxUpdatedControl ControlID="rtbEmployeeName" />
                   <telerik:AjaxUpdatedControl ControlID="cbEmployeeActive" />
                   <telerik:AjaxUpdatedControl ControlID="rtbHomePhone" />
                   <telerik:AjaxUpdatedControl ControlID="rtbMobilePhone" />
                   <telerik:AjaxUpdatedControl ControlID="rcbPosition" />

    After that I process SelectedIndexChanged event in code-behind and get updated controls on client side - everything is OK.

    However, when I use paging or sorting built-in into Radgrid it again triggers the update of the controls. I only would like them to update on selection change, not on page change or sort.
    Is there a way to filter which events of a master control should trigger ajax updates of related controls ?

    Thanks for your attention.

    Hi Anar,

    One possible approach in this case is toe use partial Ajaxification as shown in the following online demo.

    Another approach is to use asp UpdatePanel and set EventName for specific AsyncPostBackTrigger. For example:
    <asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server"
            <asp:Panel ID="Panel1" runat="server"
    //Controls you need to update here
            <asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger ControlID="RadGrid1" EventName="SelectedIndexChanged" />
    <asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel2" runat="server"
            <telerik:RadGrid ID="RadGrid1" runat="server"
            <asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger ControlID="RadGrid1" EventName="PageIndexChanged" />

    I hope this helps.

    All the best,
