I was lucky enough to get a great deal on the RadControls for ASP.NET by Telerik recently.
I’d been looking at their RADEditor offering as a replacement for my Content Management System rich text editor. The editor looks awesome and supports lots of browser versions, whereas my editor only works in Internet Explorer (its quite old now(the editor not IE)).
Anyway, I leaped into the RADGrid and began to put it into a project but stumbled upon a problem where I couldn’t get an event to fire. This has been quite a pain in the butt! I finally worked out the problem a few days ago and wanted to share it here in case anyone has a similar issue.
The RADGrid is fantastic and very powerful. It is in fact, huge in terms of itâ€™s functionality and capabilities. After Iâ€™d got the grid loaded with data, I wanted to edit a row and save that data or add a new row. At this point I had a problem where I couldnâ€™t get the some of the grid editor events to fire. Specifically the Update and Cancel events of the edit form.

I had thought it was maybe a ViewState problem, which it turned out to be. Even though I had enabled viewstate in properties I found I had to explicitly enable viewstate in the asp.net tags of each form, usercontrol and control that was in the loaded control hierarchy.
It works like a charm and Iâ€™m very happy with the results. Iâ€™ve only just scratched the surface and Iâ€™m looking forward to developing more solutions with this control.
