Please add a setting for the Grid in batch edit mode to enable prompting to save changes. The prompt should occur when navigating away from the page, when paging, when filtering, when refreshing, or any other action that would cause loss of changes without a save. For details on how I implemented this manually, please see ticket 933229.
Time independent filtering (EqualTo problem) is currently not supported with client-side binding in RadGrid, using a WCF with odata binding. When i use the filter in a date column, the filter does not return records, it is because is passing date AND TIME to the OData service. I have open a support ticket #932463, but Daniel says it is a new feature and not a bug. So i request it.
The setting FilterType="CheckList" does not affect detail rows in the RadGrid. Only "Classic" filtering is implemented for detail rows. I (and definitely users) expect the same filtering functionality on both main and detail rows.
It would be nice if automatic insert/update functions could require unique data. I would love to use these features, but always have to write the insert and update routines manually to check that duplicates are not used.
When doing batch edits on a grid if you delete a row, the row is no longer visible in the grid but it is not actually deleted until users click the 'Save' button. This has led to some confusion for our users who delete the rows then navigate off the page w/o pressing save. They think they successfully deleted the rows but when they return to the grid the rows are still present. We have added logic when navigating away from the page that checks and prompts users if there are unsaved batch edit changes, but in case of deleted rows, when they look at the grid, there is no indication about the deleted rows so they are unaware that the rows were not actually deleted. We like the idea of not deleting the rows until the user presses the save button, but maybe the delete action should not remove the row from the grid and instead simply strike it out, or put a 'marked for deletion' flag or do something visual to keep the row on the grid but make it obvious that it has been marked for deletion. This way users will not be confused and will know that they must click the Save for the change to take effect.
User friendly Grid filtering... I developed a custom feature where I display the filter expression used in a grid. This is very helpful so that users do not have to guess or remember what exactly they filtered on. And it provides a single click to clear all the filters at once. Before, all they saw was that certain columns are being filtered by, but they don't see what the filters actually are (EqualTo, Not EqualTo, StartsWith,,,etc) and they had to clear one filter at a time to get rid of all filtering. There is not much to it but it's subject to break if Telerik makes changes to the their filtering mechanism (which did happen). It would be nice if this feature can be standard so it will be part of Q.A after any changes to the Grid. Attached is a working sample page to see this in action. See comments in code.
Hello, RadGrid that has a master and detail tables and is rebinded to another data-source. Please automatically change all information and details of the RadGrid, including details-view. Currently, only the master table is rebinded, not the details. Please see an example of the problem in the my forum question: http://www.telerik.com/forums/radgrid-detailtable-doesn-t-rebind!

I think It would be great the AUTOCOMPLETEBOX (integrated with FilterExpression) insted of the TEXTBOX for filtering in riadgrid. It's too tedious adding a custom filter template , persisting and restoring filter values after postbacks, build the filterexpression manually etc. I'm aware the checkList can provide similar functionality but it't not so clear, intuitive, ergonomic and easy to use for current user. Regards, Ángel.
It should be client's decision to style his grid, we can not change the dimentions, since it will bre breaking change for the rest of the customers
Hi, I have been using the editform for rad grid data editing. you can style most elements easily, but you cannot easily change the headers/field labels. this would be a very useful property to be added
Hello, Our project requirement is that information in RadGrid will be exported to PDF in RTL language. Please add this feature - it’s very important for our project!! Thanks, Daniel. .Net Programmer as ISR Corp
Hello, When the user exports RadGrid data, an answer is sent back by the server to the client with the exported file (through response-redirect). Our project requirement is the server will create the export file, without sending such Response-Redirect. Therefore, it would be nice to have the option to cancel the Response-Redirect.
