I have been looking at the example of the RadGrid editing with a UserControl. I am not sure how to bind the values to the UserControl fields. Is this done automatically some how? How are the values passed across to to do the initial bind when the row is selected in the grid?

I notice that there is some code like this but I don't understand how it is getting used to do the binding:

public object DataItem 
        { 
            get 
            { 
                return this._dataItem; 
            } 
            set 
            { 
                this._dataItem = value
            } 
        }

Hi darenkov,

using Eval() and Bind() expression on the ascx markup, you can specify that a control value binds to a specific data field from the binding container's data source. From the code-behind, you can use DataBinder.Eval()
