Please note that I do not have a TemplateColumn in my grid to adding a blank ItemTemplate will not work.  I read the forums until I am tired of doing it.  If I refresh the grid after clearing the IE8 error popup, the record is deleted.  I get the prompt, and the record gets deleted, but I simply must know how to get rid of this stupid message.

I'm guessing it's something with databinding, but I have no idea what.


Please help if possible.  I appreciate the help in advance.

Datasource...

 

 

 

<asp:LinqDataSource ID="ldsDeviceToDeviceInfo" runat="server"

 

 

 

ContextTypeName="AssetManagementDataContext" EnableDelete="True"

 

 

 

EnableInsert="True" EnableUpdate="True" EntityTypeName=""

 

 

 

OrderBy="DeviceName, ConnType" TableName="Connections">

 

 

 

</asp:LinqDataSource>

I have this in my RadAjaxManager (among other things not related to this grid):

 

 

 

<telerik:AjaxSetting AjaxControlID="grdDevToDev">

 

 

 

<UpdatedControls>

 

 

 

<telerik:AjaxUpdatedControl ControlID="grdDevToDev" LoadingPanelID="RadAjaxLoadingPanel1" />

 

 

 

</UpdatedControls>

 

 

 

</telerik:AjaxSetting>

Hi

It looks like you have scenario similar to what telerik show here:

http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/grid/examples/dataediting/programaticlinqupdates/defaultcs.aspx

Difference i see is that they don't rebind their grid on command. May be you can try this.

Thanks,
Johny

I also have a problem when deleting from my RadGrid control. I set the Data Source of the RadGrid to a basic EntityDataSource object. AutoGenerateDeleteColunm is True and AllowAutomaticDeletes is True. Everything works fine when the user clicks on the "delete" link. But as soon as I convert one the fields in the grid to a template colunm, the "delete" produces the following error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. There is no custom event code on this page.

Here is the code:

Hello Pat,

I tried to replicate the issue locally by using the following live example but to no avail. I attached the modified sample to this tread, so could you please give it a try and let me know about the result. I would appreciate if you could replicate the issue in my sample or provide a small runnable one in order to investigate it further.

Regards,
