Hello..

I have a custom template edit form. The problem I have is that the edit form has a field that is required only when inserting a record. When editing a record it is optional.

I have a required field validator that I want to enable or disable depending if the form is shown in insert or edit mode.

To accomplish it, I need to know if there is an event I can implement where I can enable or disable the validator. I tried using EditCommand or ItemCommand (with "InitInsert" verification) but in both cases the edit form isn't accesible.

Any help will be greatly appreciated

Thanks
Jaime

Hi Jaime,

Try  accessing the edit form in the ItemDataBound event as shown below:

CS
 protected void RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, Telerik.Web.UI.GridItemEventArgs e) 
        { 
            if (e.Item is GridEditableItem && e.Item.IsInEditMode) 
            { 
                GridEditableItem editedIem = (GridEditableItem)e.Item; 
                RequiredFieldValidator validator=(RequiredFieldValidator)editedIem.FindControl("Validator1"); 
 
            } 
        } 

Thanks,
Shinu

Hello Shinu,

Thanks for the help. I have to add editItem.ParentItem != null comparison, since I needed to know if the form is in Edit or Insert mode, and I realized that for Insert mode, editItem.ParentItem == null.

Cheers
Jaime
