    Hi all,

    I am using a webusercontrol for my insert / edit of my radgrid. The insert seems to work fine, except the window doesn't close. After the save, if I click the close X then everything is fine - but it should do that automatically. The other problem is that my edit doesn't work - doesn't pull information in. I'm sure that's because I'm not doing anything to bind it.

    So - first question - my .ascx file is using a FormView control and does all of the binding like a normal page would. Is that correct? I really couldn't find a simple example of how to do this.

    If 'yes' and I have done that part right - then how do I get my edit to tie to my grid?

    Thanks so much. I've included code here:

    1. Grid:
    <telerik:RadGrid runat="server" ID="gvPatientSearch" DataSourceID="dsPatients" AllowAutomaticInserts="true">
            <ClientEvents OnPopUpShowing="PopUpShowing" /> 
        <MasterTableView DataKeyNames="patientID" CommandItemDisplay="Top" Width="100%" EditMode="PopUp">
                CaptionFormatString="Edit Patient Record for {0}"
                InsertCaption="New Patient"
            <CommandItemSettings ShowAddNewRecordButton="true" AddNewRecordText="Add New Patient" />
                <telerik:GridEditCommandColumn />

    2. My user control looks like this:

    <%@ Control Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="patientControl.ascx.vb" Inherits="App_Assets_Controls_patientControl" %>
        <div align="center">
            <asp:FormView runat="server" ID="fvPatients" DataKeyNames="patientID" DataSourceID="dsPatients" DefaultMode="Insert">
                    <table class="searchTable" style="border: 1px solid #2a5690; background-color: #f7f5f0;" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="1" width="99%">
                        <td align="right">Last Name:</td>
                            <telerik:RadTextBox runat="server" ID="txtLastName" Text='<%# Bind("lastName") %>' MaxLength="50" />
                            <asp:RequiredFieldValidator ID="RequiredFieldValidator2" runat="server" ControlToValidate="txtLastName" CssClass="errorMessage">«</asp:RequiredFieldValidator>
                        <td align="right">First Name:</td>

    Hello David,

     When you use custom user control for the update / insert functionality you should manually handle the update / insert command for the grid and perform there the operation with the database. In this case the AllowAutomaticInserts property should have its default value false. So you should set it to false in order for the window to close automatically. More information on the automatic operations can be found in this help topic.

    For the second question you can have a look at this demo showing editing in grid with custom user control. Also this help topic shows how to connect the user control and the grid.

    Hope this helps.
