Hi there,  I tried using the following example to create a simple grid with auto CRUD.  It looks good but when I click the "update" button the edited fields just reset and nothing else happens.

I've had to programmatically add the datasource as my app is rocking a legacy connection string encription routine.

Here's my ASP page:
<%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeBehind="Edit_GovernanceContacts.aspx.vb"
    Inherits="APSubmission.Edit_GovernanceContacts" %>
<%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="uc1" TagName="Menu" Src="Menu.ascx" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<head id="Head1" runat="server">
    <title>Submission System</title>
<body style="background-color: #f2ffff">
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server">
        <uc1:Menu ID="Menu1" runat="server"></uc1:Menu>
    <div style="padding: 10px 0 0 10px">
        Edit Governance Contacts
        <telerik:RadGrid ID="gridContacts" runat="server" AllowAutomaticDeletes="True" EnableAJAX="True"
            AllowAutomaticInserts="True" AllowAutomaticUpdates="True" Skin="WebBlue">
            <MasterTableView AutoGenerateColumns="False" DataKeyNames="recID" CommandItemDisplay="TopAndBottom">
                    <EditColumn UniqueName="EditCommandColumn"></EditColumn>
                    <telerik:GridEditCommandColumn UniqueName="EditCommandColumn" ButtonType="imagebutton" />
                    <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="recID"
                        FilterControlAltText="Filter columnID column" HeaderText="ID"
                    <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="submissionSetID"
                        FilterControlAltText="Filter columnSubmissionSet column"
                        HeaderText="Submission Set ID" UniqueName="submissionSetID">
                    <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="contactName"
                        FilterControlAltText="Filter columnContactName column"
                        HeaderText="Contact Name" UniqueName="contactName">
                    <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="addDate" DataType="System.DateTime"
                        FilterControlAltText="Filter columnAddDate column" HeaderText="Add Date"
                        ReadOnly="True" UniqueName="addDate">
                    <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="addWho"
                        FilterControlAltText="Filter columnAddWho column" HeaderText="Add Who"
                        ReadOnly="True" UniqueName="addWho">
                    <telerik:GridButtonColumn UniqueName="ButtonColumn" Text="Delete" CommandName="Delete"

And the code behind to create the datasource:
Protected Sub gridContacts_NeedDataSource(sender As Object, e As Telerik.Web.UI.GridNeedDataSourceEventArgs) Handles gridContacts.NeedDataSource       
        Dim myDataSource As New SqlDataSource
        myDataSource.ConnectionString = _functions.GetConnectionString()
        myDataSource.DeleteCommand = "delete GovernanceContact where recID = @recID"
        myDataSource.InsertCommand = "insert GovernanceContact (submissionSetID, contactName, addDate, addWho) values @submissionSetID, @contactName, @addDate, @addWho)"
        myDataSource.SelectCommand = "select * from GovernanceContact where submissionSetID = @submissionSetID"
        myDataSource.UpdateCommand = "update GovernanceContact set contactName = @contactName where recID = @recID"
        myDataSource.DeleteParameters.Add("recID", DbType.Int32)
        myDataSource.InsertParameters.Add("submissionSetID", DbType.Int32, _editSubmissionSetID)
        myDataSource.InsertParameters.Add("contactName", DbType.String)
        myDataSource.InsertParameters.Add("addDate", DbType.DateTime)
        myDataSource.InsertParameters.Add("addWho", DbType.String)
        myDataSource.SelectParameters.Add("submissionSetID", DbType.Int32, _editSubmissionSetID)
        myDataSource.UpdateParameters.Add("contactName", DbType.String)
        myDataSource.UpdateParameters.Add("recID", DbType.Int32)
        gridContacts.DataSource = myDataSource
        gridContacts.MasterTableView.DataSource = myDataSource
    End Sub

I'm obviously doing something wrong, but I just don't know what it is.

Thanks for any help you can provide,

Hello Kenyon,

When using automaric CRUD operations you need to bind RadGrid to a declarative data source using the DataSourceID property. Also in order for the automatic operations to work properly the insert, update and delete parameters should be configured for the data source.

An example of how this could be achieved is shown in this article. There is also an online demo illustrating this functionality here.
