Hello

Not sure if this is possible, but I would like to know if this is possible and if it is can I ge an example...

I have a user control that displays data that I read from the database. I want to use the Grid with custom paging to render the usercontrol within the cell of the grid. So basically I would have 1 column (cell) in the grid and infinite rows... Is this possible to render a usercontrol into a cell? Which method would I have to implement to assign the row values to my user control? Can I implement this along with Filtering and paging?

If I could get any example of this I would sincerely appreciate it.. It can be a real small example, but covering the usercontrol, filtering and custompaging...

Thank You,
Thomas Radomski

Hi Thomas,

You can use a template column. Here are some examples and help articles, related to your scenario:

RadGrid Column Types Demo
RadGrid Column Types Help Article

RadGrid Custom Paging Demo

RadGrid - Template Column Filtering Demo

By the way, it is not required to use custom paging in this scenario, this is up to you.

Hi Thomas,

One other suggestion will be to create the usercontrol in the code behind and adding it to a particular cell as shown below.

CS:
 protected void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, GridItemEventArgs e) 
    { 
 
        if (e.Item is GridDataItem) 
        { 
            UserControl usercontrol = UserControl(); 
            usercontrol.ID = "UserControl1"
            Label lbl = new Label(); 
            lbl.ID = "Label1"; ; 
            lbl.Text = "New Text"
            usercontrol.Controls.Add(lbl); 
 
            GridDataItem item = (GridDataItem)e.Item; 
            if (item["ProductName"].Text == "MyText") 
            { 
                item["ProductName"].Controls.Add(usercontrol); 
            } 
        } 
    }

Princy, I created a user control with some labels and buttons.. I tried to show this in my IndexID column, but when it runs I see just a blank column for all the rows.. Am I doing something wront..

protected
void radgrdCRE_ItemDataBound(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.GridItemEventArgs e)

{

if (e.Item is GridDataItem)

{

GridDataItem item = (GridDataItem)e.Item;

if (item != null)

{

WebUserControl1 usercontrol = new WebUserControl1();

usercontrol.ID =

"UserControl1";

// usercontrol.Label1.Text = "Text1";// item["IndexID"].Text;

// usercontrol.Label2.Text = "text2";// item["IndexText"].Text;

item[

"IndexID"].Controls.Add(usercontrol);

}

}

}
