Hi - I am new to these controls and have so far been very impressed. I am trying to write a generic grid control to use for editing reference data in my database. I am developing in C# and using the v8.2.0.0 of the Telerik controls.

I drop a RadGridView onto my form and add a few columns but when I run the application I am unable to enter *edit* mode, even though the *new* row is showing up and the context menu is giving the option to *edit* existing rows.

If I double click on a row, or hit enter, or F2, nothing happens - it is as if the row/grid is locked.

Does anyone have an idea what I could be doing wrong here? I am sure it is something simple - but I have spent the last 2 hours searching the docs and trying countless combinations of property settings etc - with no luck!

Thanks in advance!
Ben

Hi Ben,

Check the properties of MasterGridVIewTemplate --> AllowEditRows = true

If above has been set and unable to edit on cells. Change the DatatTable / DataSet column.READONLY = false.

Hi Pradeep,

Firstly thanks for taking the time to offer your assistance! I checked those two properties and they were set as you specified so no luck unfortunately.

However I did manage to work out what is wrong - and as expected it was my fault and a simple fix. I was using a custom helper method for adding columns to my grid. However I was mistakenly using the GridViewDataColumn class for all my columns, instead of GridViewTextBoxColumn. The data column obviously has no editor and hence the reason it would not enter edit mode.

Apologies for such a stupid mistake! But thanks again for your help.

Regards,
Ben
