I'm trying to get the dataSource dataItem for a grid value after I have brought up a custom popup screen.  I've created a button on the custom popup, and I'm passing the UID to the click event and I can get the row of the grid, however I'm trying to get the datasource dataItem and have had no luck.  I've create the following dojo:   http://dojo.telerik.com/@pnd@qad.com/oYIXU/2

I've also attached a screenshot of the developer tools which shows my dataItem is undefined, what I need is the dataItem so that I can pass that on to another call.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hello Paul,

Thank you for the provided runnable example.

The reason the data item was not retrieved properly was the UID was passed as a string with spaces before and after the actual UID. I have modified the dojo accordingly, and also included another approach of retrieving the data item - via the Grid dataItem() method. Both dataSource.getByUid() and dataItem() return the same item, and you can choose one in accordance with your preference:

I hope this helps.

Works great!  I love the forums.....

 

Quick question - how could I pass the data not as a string?  Is it possible to pass the entire data object from the template button click?  I could not figure out how to do it without it blowing up, that's why I did the stringing of the value and passed that to get it in the next function.

Hi Paul,

The most straightforward approach would be to store the respective data item in a variable, accessible in the template, and use it as a parameter to the button click handler:

http://dojo.telerik.com/ivIREM/2

There is no trivial way to pass the whole data item in the template, using the current approach.
