Here's the scenario:  I have a complex work request form.  On this form the user needs to identify how to break out the postage.  The postage may use various mailing methods (first class, second class....) and mail carriers (USPS, UPS....).  So for each postage information, I need to capture the number of pieces, the cost per piece, the mailing method, mail carrier and the total cost.  This information is not to be saved until the user saves the rest of the request form.  Normally I would use javascript and a table to display the data and to be able to add and remove rows until the user hits the "save" button to actually save the information. Then I would go back to server side and update the database.

How do I accomplish this using Telerik controls without using a web service to go back to the database each time I add/update/remove a row? There is no need to go back to the server until the user clicks the "save" button.

thanks on any help you can give me on this.

Hi,

Basically, if you want to temporary same any data on the client, without going to the server, you san use hidden fields or cookies. Though we do not have a control which saves the user input on the client, if this is what you are looking for,  which you can use so you will have to do it manually.
However, can you elaborate on the form you provide to the user, what controls it uses? Are all the fields visible all the time, or you are using some sort of wizard? Any additional information on your goal, current implementation and showstoppers you can provide, might help in suggesting the best solution for you.

You can use USPS's liteblue portal for this.
