How do I do this? 

If I have a grid that the user entered edit or insert mode, I want to make sure that if they press the Enter key, I want to capture this action and fire the Update command so I can record the actions that I have in the backend and close the inline or form mode input screen.

I'm assuming that I need to add javascript to capture the keypress event and look for the Enter key. The Update and Cancel options must be some form of object I can refocus on, also via javascript? Then how do I fire my backend code to complete this action and close the form?

Do you have any examples that exist or could be shared?  I'd think this is a pretty common request, but didn't find any examples on this site or in the examples installed.

Thanks!

I have attached a sample page which demonstrates a basic implementation of the requested functionality.

This works for update operations, but not for insert. How can I make this work for insert using edit forms. Also it does not fire my validator controls in the edit form (template columns).

Thank you very much Nikolay, but this code does not fire my validator controls on insert or update. Is there a way I can use my existing validation controls on keyboard input as well. The validation works fine when the insert or update buttons are clicked. So maybe there is a way to simulate that click in javascript when the enter key is pressed

Hello Lee,

Generally all the commands triggered by RadGrid that cause postback will trigger the validators on form.
Can you show us how you have your validators set up?

Hello Shravan,

Make sure that you are using advanced data binding methods to bind the grid. Please elaborate your scenario if it doesn't help.

Hi Shinu, Sorry for coming back so late, I am autobinding the radgrid with a entitydatasource and doing insert update operation in add/edit mode. if I am editing any row and hitting enter, it is opening the first row in edit mode. please suggest me on this, I am not using the NeedSource.

Hi Shravan,

This is probably related to the Default button feature of your form. You can read more on this, along with a workaround here:
