I am new to the Telerik controls, and I am having a difficult time achieving what I would think would be a fairly simple task.
I have a radgrid with it's edit form type set to "template". I would like to add a simple "file attachment" feature to the form, so that someone can attach a file when editing the record, and be able so see/open the attachments when viewing the record. Nothing fancy, just basic file attachment functionality. I was hoping there would be a basic "file attachment" type of control where I can just drop it on the form and tell it "here is my field to store the file, and here is the ID field (or some field) from the RadGrid datasource to use as a key" and it just works, but unless I am overlooking something I don't see it. Even as I am writing this post I notice this message board has a simple "Attach files" option at the bottom that I assume works like I what I want.
I have tried in vain to search through the forums and look at all the demo's, but I think I am only confusing myself. I have looked at the demos for the RadAsynchUpload control which seems close to what I need, but the demos don't seem to be set up with a radgrid edit template in use. They also seem to involve a fair amount of customised coding, which I was hoping to avoid. I also looked into the attachment grid column type, but I couldn;t get that to work either.
Can anyone provide me a clear/simple demo (VB.net) that shows how to achieve what I need? I would prefer to store the files (they will be small files, and only one file per record) in the SQL database, but could store them in a folder if that makes it easier.
