I have a Telerik RAD Grid which i am bindng on client side. i have another button(Button 2) which when clicked will do a postback and get the values of the grid and call the database to perform some activity, but in the Button 2 Click event, values of the grid are lost and also the grid after Button 2 click has empty data. See below sample code.

        <script type="text/javascript">
    function test() {
                var EmployeeInfo = { "Emp_Number": "12349999" }
                var arr = [];
                grid = $find("<%=rdEmployeeInfo.ClientID %>");
                tableView = grid.get_masterTableView();
        <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
           <asp:button ID="Button1" runat="server" OnClientClick="test(); return false;" />
            <asp:button ID="Button2" runat="server" onclick="Button2_Click" />

Hi Pawan,

When you have a button click,due to its postback the data's will be lost.Here you have bind the grid on client side,then trying to access it on server side on another button click.This will cause the postback and data will be lost.One suggestion is to do both, binding and other functions on the server side completely or do it completely in clientside.Mixing up is causing such issues.
Please let know if any concern.
