Hello!

I'm playing around with RadGrid and spent already some days researching on how to customize autogenerated fields and have two questions:

How can I define a diferent  label color for a required field or even the text/checkbox etc?
I read a bit about using ColumEditor and tried from the example:

<telerik:GridCheckBoxColumnEditor ID="requiredCheckBox" runat="server" >
    <CheckBoxStyle BackColor="#edffc3" BorderColor="#ecbb0d" BorderStyle="Solid" ForeColor="#7fa822"  />
</telerik:GridCheckBoxColumnEditor>

It makes the color as it should but even when the records are listed and not only for the edit/insert/update mode. How can I change this... and further, isn't there a generic way to do this instead of having to format all individual fields?

Another thing I'm trying to accomplish is to create a basic page with a RadGrid and EntityDataSource on it and apply the table on page load so I can do something similar as a master page for generic tables with few fields so if I decide to change something on the grid I can have it applied to all of them?

Is there a way to accomplish this?

Thanks

Hello Ricardo,

There is not generic way to achieve the desired functionality. You could try manually changing the style of the messages labels.

Regarding your second question:
The best way to achieve the desired functionality is to use the MasterPage file and create the RadGrid into it. If you create a RadGrid into standard aspx page and use this page as a basic page to other aspx pages you may get some issues.
Additionally please check out the following links which explains how to create a base page for all pages:
