The following code will show the Insert for when my page loads...
if (!Page.IsPostBack)
{
     Grid.MasterTableView.IsItemInserted = true;
     Grid.Rebind();
}
But it does not fire the InitInsert command, which I use to initialize my insert form,with default valus and the like.  How can I get the form to display and fire the InitInsert Command, or is there a better way I should be tackling this issue.

Thanks,
Joe

Hello Joseph,

If you want to set some default values in TextBoxes when the grid is in insert mode, try the following code snippet in ItemDataBound event.

C#:
protected void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)
 
  if (e.Item is GridEditFormInsertItem && e.Item.OwnerTableView.IsItemInserted)
  // if EditMode is 'EditForms'
   {
     GridEditFormInsertItem insertItem = (GridEditFormInsertItem)e.Item;
     TextBox txt = (TextBox)insertItem["ColumnUniqueName"].Controls[0]; // access the TextBox using ColumnUniqueName
     txt.Text = "default text";// fill TextBox with some default data
   }
  if (e.Item.OwnerTableView.IsItemInserted && e.Item is GridDataInsertItem)
  // if EditMode is 'InPlace'
   {
     GridDataInsertItem insertItem = (GridDataInsertItem)e.Item;
     TextBox txt = (TextBox)insertItem["ColumnUniqueName"].Controls[0];
     txt.Text = "default text";
   }
 }

Thanks,
Princy.

I guess I was hoping there would be an "easier" way.  I currently have my grid setup to do automatic updates and inserts, which works perfectly using the InitInsert command to initialize my form.  I understand what you are proposing, and I do beleive it would solve my issue (and I will probably implement it), but I was hoping I could somehow leave my code as is, and somehow simply fire the InitInsert command on my grid on Page_Load. 

Is this just not possible?

Thanks,
Joe

Hi,


You can try an alternate method to display insertform and fire the ItemCommand when page loads for first time.

CS:
protected void RadGrid1_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    if (!IsPostBack)
    {
        GridCommandItem commandItem = (GridCommandItem)RadGrid1.MasterTableView.GetItems(GridItemType.CommandItem)[0];
        commandItem.FireCommandEvent("InitInsert", null);
    }
}
protected void RadGrid1_ItemCommand(object source, Telerik.Web.UI.GridCommandEventArgs e)
{
     // Check for the CommandName
}


Thanks,
Princy.
