    I'm currently evaluating some RAD controls from Telerik, just right now I'm experimenting with the RadGrid.

    So I have my grid control and enabled client-side binding for having Ajax support. I created an appropriate WCF webservice for fetching the data etc. Everything works really good, including paging etc. Now I wanted to have a button column for deleting some items. I registered the OnItemCommand event of the grid and implemented it accordingly on the server-side. My ASPx code looks like this:

    <telerik:RadGrid runat="server" ID="RadGrid1" AllowPaging="True" AllowSorting="True"
        AutoGenerateColumns="False" GridLines="None"
        <MasterTableView DataKeyNames="Id" ClientDataKeyNames="Id">
                <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="Firstname" HeaderText="Firstname" DataType="System.String">
                <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="Lastname" HeaderText="Lastname" DataType="System.String">
                <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="Age" HeaderText="Age" DataType="System.Int32">
                <telerik:GridButtonColumn CommandName="Delete" Text="Delete" UniqueName="DeleteColumn"
            <PagerStyle Mode="Slider" />
            <DataBinding SelectMethod="GetSampleData" Location="Webservice/GridData.svc" SortParameterType="String">

    However when clicking on the appropriate button on a grid row the event isn't fired, basically no postback to the server is being done. A solution I found is to add the "EnablePostBackOnRowClick=true" to the ClientSettings, but this would cause a postback on each click on a row, which is not really desired.

    Is there a better way to realizing this or does anybody have a hint what could be the problem??

    As you populate your RadGrid using client-side binding, my suggestion is that you delete the record by attaching a handler to grid's OnCommand client event and checking for the commandname whether it is delete or not. If the commandname is delete, then delete the row from RadGrid by calling the webservice method to delete as shown in this online demo.
