    RadControls version

    .NET version


    Visual Studio version


    programming language


    browser support

    all browsers supported by RadControls


    Focus is on first field, tab through to the checkbox (use space to toggle), tab again and hit the enter key.  Grid will be updated and focus is back on the first field for rapid data entry.  Viewstate is used so that multiple tabs and selecting another value for the dropdown is all independent.  The value of the dropdown is used as the viewstate name.  No need for several objectdatasources and radgrids.  Can select one or multiple to delete.  Can select one or multiple to update (except when selecting by draging mouse).

    I think this should be useful to many developers for their customers that require rapid data entry that is seamless using custom controls with Telerik's RadGrid.

    Hello jdaunora,

    Thank you for the sample application. The demo can surely be helpful for other people who would like to follow rapid data entry approach with RadGrid. The demo also demonstrates inserting new, updating and deleting records through controls outside the Grid.

    Just a remark -- you don't need to set Grid's DataSource in buttons click event since it is reset in NeedDataSource.

    Thank you for the involvement! 
    We appreciate your it and added 5000 Telerik points to your account for the post.
