When using RadGrid GridDropDownColumn that displays referenced data from a different table allow filter to be replaced with a dropdown of available values. For example if my database has a table called Groups with and Id field and Name field; and it also contains a Members table with a GroupId field which contains the Id from the Groups table when I configure the Members GroupId Field with GridDropDownColumn with ListTextField="Name" ListValueField="Id" DataField="GroupId" as the values for the dropdown I should be able to choose FilterType="DropDownControl" to get the functionality found here http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/grid/examples/functionality/filtering/filter-templates/defaultcs.aspx for City and Country columns.
We recently added row group functionality to our grids and we and our users are very happy with this. Only thing that bothers us is the drop functionality on the grouppanel. We have a wish to make the drop functionality of the grouppanel much more intuitive. Especially when the RadGrid is already grouped on multiple columns. The marker to indicate where the user will drop an existing grouping column is shown at the begin and the end of the group column connector between groups: The drop indicator on the group column connector should not be shown at the side of the connector where the dragged column is at to inform the user nothing will happen/change when you drop it here. All of these cases can be reproduced on the RadGrid Grouping demo on your site: http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/grid/examples/functionality/grouping/grouping/defaultcs.aspx Forum reference: http://www.telerik.com/forums/grouppanel-column-drop-and-reorder?actionMode=replyPost&postId=d7274118-f8a1-48e1-9ae3-f537fe8d78de
Please could you add an option to the NextPrevNumericAndAdvanced pager mode to allow the Page Size RadTextBox to be displayed as a RadComboBox like the NextPrevAndNumeric pager. This would help us to have a more consistant look and feel between the 2 pager modes.
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.
