Does anyone have any examples of doing client-side databinding on a RadGrid where one of the columns is a custom AJAX control?

I've been using a GridTemplateColumn for my custom control, but am unsure how to bind the data to the control at the client level.

Thanks,
Jason

Hi Jason,

This depends on the control and whether it allows being bound, set up on the client side. In general, you should use the RowDataBound client event to access the control and set its properties with regard to the content of its parent row. This is so because when paging without a trip to the server, the control is not recreated, so you need to modify its properties manually.

Also, depending on your requirements, if the information that you want to display can be represented with HTML (and where needed javascript) only, you can consider using the ClientItemTemplate of the GridTemplateColumn which will be available in Q2 2012:
ClientItemTemplate
