I'd like to request for an expansion of the RadGrid header rotation. Currently the rgRotateHeader style that can be applied rotates +90deg. I find this an uncomfartable reading direction and I am sure my users will complain about it. While attempting to set some custom style corrections tot rotate -90deg with the help of Telerik support I found that the end result was not good enough to bring into production: wrapping direction was wrong and too many manual corrections had to be made to make the header fit. See attached screenshots where I made an attempt to rotate the header to override the rgRotateHeader style and the undesired wrapping results and the inconvenient required corrections in transform-origin. Maybe I could have made this work, but this is where I stopped my effort as it cost me too many time. I would very much like this a standard feature of the Radgrid. Also -45deg would be very nice to have!
Rather than simply using the drag and drop method to reorder rows within a rad grid, allow for the built in functionality where you can simply move rows up and down client side so that the user can sort the data by rows rather than columns. Feature request came after a customer had a grid of data that was sorted in a sorted order but they wanted the ability to not only select what rows they wanted which we coded using the checkbox column, but they then wanted to be able to sort the rows they had selected as the selected rows were being exported to a PDF or Excel so wanted them in a certain order.
You have very useful property - EnableTimeIndependentFiltering for GridDateTimeColumn. But I need to use ItemTemplate and EditItemTemplate and this future missing in GridTemplateColumn. I try to use FilterTemplate with RadDatePicker, but then I have only "equal to" option for filtering. I don't want this. So my suggestion to you is to develop EnableTimeIndependentFiltering for the cases when user have to use GridTemplateColumn with DataType=System.DateTime.
Currently it's not possible to overrule number of pages to be shown in page navigation, if EntityDataSource is used. There is the problem that always all rows from data source get queried, when GridGroupByExpression has been defined for RadGrid - and this is really a problem, if data source has hundreds of thousands of records (as in our case). The performance is really bad. To overcome this issue I would like to control myself, which data gets returned by adapting query in OnQueryCreated event of EntityDataSource, basically by "injecting" skip / take expression to entity query. I am responsible myself about sorting and grouping should be done on page level only (so there is no need to query always ALL data). In same event I want to set VirtualItemCount, which should control number of pages to be shown in page navigation (in combination with AllowCustomPaging). But unfortunately this setting is not taken into account by RadGrid for displaying pages in page navigation. Is it possible to overrule this behavior that VirtualitemCount is always taken into account when AllowCustomPaging has been enabled? I would like to control myself. Thanks, Roger
Kendo ui Grid is taking more than 10 secs to load Data.It contains approx 16000 records.I am using Ajax call to get data from Database.Please let me know how to reduce the load time.In ASP grid it is taking not more than 3 secs to load the data of 16000 records.
We are using RadGrid in SharePoint Visual Webpart with FilterType="CheckList". What we need is to be able to filter the checklist further with auto filter textbox. 1. When the filter icon is clicked, it fills with all available options (say 100 + records). 2. User enters few characters (say first 4) in the textbox and the list gets filtered with the all options starting with... (resulting in 8 records) 3. User then selects the required option for the final filter. Please find attached image for clarification.
The new RadGrid Filtering (Checkbox list) is great, but... 1) it will be great if, upon RadGrid Databinding, the filter gets a list of unique value for that column: that is, most of the time, how we populate the checklist. 2) Today, there's one Event "OnfilterCheckListItemsRequested" that is fired whenever a listbox needs to gets its list. Then you have to put in the event Handler the logic to find out which column called, and give back the specific column checkbox filtering list. IMO, each column should have a distinct EventHandler for this. And BTW, if in the same radgrid you mix the new filter and the old ones, the old ones get an empty box instead of the default filters with option "FilterType=checklist" Even if you choose filterType=Combined, there's a difference with the standard 'Filter way': instead of having directly the filters, you got to pass thru a single menu "filter options" to find the filter menu.
Add a new column type "AutoExpand", I have lots of grids where the number of columns changes dynamically but the width of each column is fixed, this means that the width of the grid data section changes and with only a few columns defined leave a big vertical space between the last data column and the grid right hand border. It would be great to be able to add a AutoExpand column as the last column in the grid to fill any remaining space between the end of the last data column and the grid righthand border. This will give you a consistant look regardless of how many columns are added.
This should improve performance in this situation when client side data-binding can be used.
It makes no sense that the GridButtonColumn does not have the Single Click feature just like the RadButton. Why would the web users not be double-clicking this button as opposed to a stand-alone button? It is not even consistent - the button in a RadGrid's GridButtonColumn should be a RadButton.
If I'm to believe the Telerik agent in this forum thread... http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/reply-thread.aspx?messageId=0&threadId=750553 then presenting users WITHTEXTTHATLOOKSLIKETHIS (as is done by default in Metro Skin Grid Filter Menu) is a "design" feature. I happen to believe that menu items ought to be readable by human users and not appear like they are the result of some sort of keyboard malfunction... at least by default. If some "designer" out there feels the need to present their users with ABSURDTEXTFORMATTING, then it is they that should be required to implement some sort of hack, not the rest of us. This was a horrible design decision made by someone at Telerik, and the fact that I am required to appeal to other developers who have better things to do with their time in order to get Telerik to see the absurdity of this design and fix it is most troubling.
I want to use tab key for filter. First i am entering filter text in first column then pressing tab. So i want after press tab the courser should go to next column and should allow typing. Check my demo first search with name column then press tab key the courser not going to next column and not allowing typing.
People keeps complaining that web grids are slower and more difficult to use than Excel. We definitely need a radgrid control with excel-like editing. Ideally we need the look-and-feel of the radspreadsheet, with the fixed columns of the radgrid, the events for updating a database, and maybe direct databinding to a database table. What they want to see is Excel. Like the MS-Access UI, when they move (with keyboard) from row to row, they expect the database to get updated accordigly.
It would be very useful if the GridDropDownColumn had some way of accessing the database value of the control when not in edit mode. It is very roundabout to have to add more controls or hidden fields just to access data that was already pulled from the database. Some kind of function that could get the value which corresponds to the shown text would be exceptionally useful.
When the grid has no paging and all the groups are collapsed its good to have a paging defined within grouping to display all the groups in the same page as well can browse through the items within the group with paging defined.
