Hello, I'm trying to add a Split Button to a standard asp.net DataGrid. I'd like to be able to handle the ItemCommand event to response to clicks on the button or associated menu item. Is this possible? Can I somehow make the menu click change the CommandName of the associated button?

Hi Andrew,

Yes it is possible, however, you should take in mind the fact that args.IsSplitButtonClick() method is available only for OnClientClicked event which is not cancelable. Therefore I can suggest that you utilize two RadButtons as follows:
  - The first RadButton will be split button and will have its AutoPostBack property set to false. It will be the UI button.
  - The second RadButton will be the hidden in a span and will perform the actual postback.

For example:
ASPX:
<form id="form1" runat="server">
        <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server"></telerik:RadScriptManager>
        <script type="text/javascript">
            var postBackTriggerButtonID;
            var splitButtonID;
            function OnClientClicked(sender, args) {
                splitButtonID = sender.get_id();
                postBackTriggerButtonID = splitButtonID.substring(0, splitButtonID.length - 1) + "2";
                if (args.IsSplitButtonClick() || !$find(postBackTriggerButtonID).get_commandName()) {
                    var currentLocation = $telerik.getBounds(sender.get_element());
                    var contextMenu = $find("<%=RadContextMenu1.ClientID%>");
                    contextMenu.showAt(currentLocation.x, currentLocation.y + currentLocation.height);
                } else if (sender.get_text() == "AddToCart" || sender.get_text() == "RemoveFromCart") {
                    $find(postBackTriggerButtonID).set_commandName(sender.get_text());
                    $find(postBackTriggerButtonID).click();
                }
            }
 
            function OnClientItemClicked(sender, args) {
                //debugger;
                var itemText = args.get_item().get_text();
                var splitButton = $find(splitButtonID);
                if (itemText == "AddToCart") {
                    $find(postBackTriggerButtonID).set_commandName("AddToCart");
                    splitButton.set_text("AddToCart");
                }
                else if (itemText == "RemoveFromCart") {
                    $find(postBackTriggerButtonID).set_commandName("RemoveFromCart");
                    splitButton.set_text("RemoveFromCart");
                }
                $find(postBackTriggerButtonID).click();
            }
 
        </script>
        <telerik:RadContextMenu ID="RadContextMenu1" runat="server" OnClientItemClicked="OnClientItemClicked">
            <Items>
                <telerik:RadMenuItem Text="AddToCart">
                </telerik:RadMenuItem>
                <telerik:RadMenuItem Text="RemoveFromCart">
                </telerik:RadMenuItem>
            </Items>
        </telerik:RadContextMenu>
        <h3>DataGrid Example</h3>
 
        <table cellpadding="5">
            <tr valign="top">
                <td>
 
                    <b>Product List</b>
 
                    <asp:DataGrid ID="ItemsGrid"
                        BorderColor="black"
                        BorderWidth="1"
                        CellPadding="3"
                        AutoGenerateColumns="false"
                        OnItemCommand="Grid_CartCommand"
                        runat="server">
 
                        <HeaderStyle BackColor="#00aaaa"></HeaderStyle>
 
                        <Columns>
                            <asp:TemplateColumn>
                                <ItemTemplate>
                                    <telerik:RadButton ID="RadButton1" runat="server" Text="AddToCart" AutoPostBack="false" EnableSplitButton="true" OnClientClicked="OnClientClicked" />
                                    <span style="visibility: hidden;">
                                        <telerik:RadButton ID="RadButton2" runat="server" CommandName="AddToCart" />
                                    </span>
                                </ItemTemplate>
                            </asp:TemplateColumn>
                            <asp:BoundColumn
                                HeaderText="Item"
                                DataField="StringValue" />
 
                            <asp:BoundColumn
                                HeaderText="Price"
                                DataField="CurrencyValue"
                                DataFormatString="{0:c}">
 
                                <ItemStyle HorizontalAlign="right"></ItemStyle>
 
                            </asp:BoundColumn>
 
                        </Columns>
 
                    </asp:DataGrid>
 
                </td>
                <td>
 
                    <b>Shopping Cart</b>
 
                    <asp:DataGrid ID="ShoppingCart"
                        runat="server"
                        BorderColor="black"
                        BorderWidth="1"
                        GridLines="Both"
                        ShowFooter="false"
                        CellPadding="3"
                        CellSpacing="0">
 
                        <HeaderStyle BackColor="#00aaaa"></HeaderStyle>
 
                    </asp:DataGrid>
 
                </td>
            </tr>
 
        </table>
 
    </form>
