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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Is any option to use RadGrid in disconnected mode. So when user lost connection with internet(intranet), he can continue to work with grid - add new record, edit records. In html 5 appear such technologies like HTML5 Storage,Web Sql. Is it any way to interact with them?
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.
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
Using EnableTimeIndependentFiltering with a DatePicker works very well but I would like to see a EnableDateIndependentFiltering property. Can date independent filtering be added to the time picker control in the RadGrid? As it is now you can add a time picker filter column but it does not filter properly since it looks at both the date and time portions of a datetime field.
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.
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.
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.
The title says it all. Right now there's only a check all option. In the out of the box Grid CheckList filter the only way to clear all items for a checklist filter once filter items have been selected is to: 1) Uncheck each one individually 2) Click "Check All" to check all, then click "Check All" again to uncheck all. It would be great to just have a clear all/clear selection button in the filter list.
