    Hello,

    I have two grids with EditMode="Batch".  Both grids subscribe to the OnBatchEditCommand event for saving data.  I am trying to save data from both of these grids, as well as data from other controls on the page with one button click. 

    I have tried suggestions from http://www.telerik.com/forums/save-radgrid-in-batcheditmode-from-external-button and http://www.telerik.com/forums/how-do-i-save-2-radgrids-by-only-1-outside-button but can't seem to achieve the desired functionality...  Is this possible?

    Thank you in advance.

    Amy

    Hi Amy,

    The suggestion provided in the forum thread below works perfectly on my end:
    http://www.telerik.com/forums/how-do-i-save-2-radgrids-by-only-1-outside-button

    Can you please share your page markup and related code behind that demonstrates the issue in this example? Thus we can revise them locally and advise you further.

    Hi Maria,

    Thank you for your response.  I just tested again and it seems that the example from the link you mentioned does in fact save the data from both grids.  However, the first grid does not refresh with the updates so it looks like the data wasn't saved.  If I refresh the page (by navigating to the same page in the browser address bar), then the grid shows the new data...
    I've included the relevant markup/code below. Any suggestions why the first grid is not displaying the new data?
    (Note that this code is being used in a user control in a SharePoint 2013 web part.)

     

    <telerik:RadCodeBlock ID="RadCodeBlock1" runat="server">
        <script type="text/javascript">
            function saveAllChanges() {
                var grid1 = $find("<%= gridGoals.ClientID %>");
                var masterTable1 = grid1.get_masterTableView();
                var grid2 = $find("<%= gridMentions.ClientID %>");
                var masterTable2 = grid2.get_masterTableView();
                var batchEditManager = grid2.get_batchEditingManager();
                var tables = [];
                tables.push(masterTable1);
                tables.push(masterTable2);
                batchEditManager.saveTableChanges(tables);
            }
        </script>
    </telerik:RadCodeBlock>

    Hi Maria,

    Were you able to reproduce my issue regarding the first grid not displaying the updated data?  Or, can you suggest a solution that would allow me to manually rebind the grid after saving using the method I posted above?

     

    Thanks,

    Amy

    Hello,

    The code you have provided looks absolutely correct to me and the issue can not be replicated in sample project that uses this approach.
    I would suggests you to remove the try catch blocks from the BatchEditCommand events and see if any error appear on the page. Also if you have ajax on the page, try to disable it and see how it goes.
    You can also try to manually call Rebind() for the first grid in its BatchEditCommand event and see if this helps.

    Hello Maria,

    I had already tried to manually call Rebind() using the code above, but it didn't help.

    The only way I am able to get both grids to rebind is to set the grid's EnableViewState property to false, and then rebind the grid on the Page_PreRender event as shown here - http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/aspnet-ajax/controls/grid/performance/rebind-grid-with-enableviewstate-=-false.  Not entirely sure why this is...

    Hello Amy,

    As the issue you are facing is rather strange and there is no obvious reason for it in the demonstrated code it will be best of you can open a regular support ticket and send us sample runnable version of your application that demonstrates the issue. Thus we will be able to revise it locally and advise you further.
