Dear developers

I would like to see an easy way to have straight forward navigation / edit / save operations in radgrid the way it works for MS Access grids. When working in MS Access grid the record automatically gets dirty on edit, has an easy cancel by ESC button, and auto-saves without any trouble when moving to the next record. The way it works in MS Access is until 2018 still hard to find in a web-control. I managed to use the batch edit and have a kind of auto save when moving to the next record. but it is a pain because the postback action results in loosing the focus on the field you navigated to. 

Why is it so hard to built what the MS boys (the old guys did great work) already built ages ago. Its about time that our web controls behave like old fashioned windows fat client controls.

Please don't lean behind, thinking that all is fine now. its not, a lot can be improved and made easier to handle and give user better user experience.

When I look at the current NEW / UPDATES for ASP.NET Ajax Controls it make me cry to see that its apparently put aside as FINISHED. Wake up, improve more or give a clear roadmap for future developments. Progress should not loose focus on the Telerik ASP.NET Ajax toolbox because that one is still a major tool for the coming 5-10 years I expect.

The ability to freeze columns on the left in a RadGrid is a great feature.  However freezing them from both the left AND right would be even better.

I have a scenario where the far left column in a date field (which is frozen and works great).  Then there are about 30 columns that scroll.  The final column is a "totals" column for that week, and it would be great if that was frozen on the right so I don't need to scroll all the way over to see that column...

Default values are provided for fields with non-string type in insert mode when RadGrid is bound using Model Binding. The reason behind it, is that the Insert item of the RadGrid is being bound similar to the edit Item and values are then provided by the framework.

Please create an option to remove the default values when inserting a new record.

Using Entity Framework Code First and model binding in a RadGrid, in insert row there is a default value for all non-string types that are not nullable.

For example "0" for Int or Decimal, "01/01/0001" for Date, etc...

So we have to make code to clear these values in textboxs or make SQL requests to give a default value to RadComboBoxs linked to a Foreign Key.

This does not happens using a FormView and model binding.
This does not happens using a RadGrid and EntityDataSource .

Please make an option to let all controls blank in insert mode without doing code !

Hello,

I have Radgrid with editable & non editable columns. I edit a row.

If I click an editable cell, it places the cursor within the editable cell. Its correct.

But if I click a readonly cell, it places the cursor in the first editable cell of the line. If the readonly cell is the last cell of the line and if I click the readonly cell, it places the cursor in the first editable cell. If the grid column width is very large, the grid is scrolled to show the first editable cell, and I loose the data which I am visualizing.

If I click in readonly cell, I want to open all the editable cells of the line, but the page should remain in same place. I don't want to place the cursor in any of the editable cells of the line. 

Example grid:
I have a simple Radgrid with batch mode and edit type row.
I have 3 columns id,name and age.
Id and name columns are editable columns. Age column is non editable column.
If I click on age column which is  non editable , the focus moves to id column, which is the first editable column.
If there many columns in my grid and if I click the last  non editable  column, the grid scrolls to first editable column, and I lose the focus of data which I am seeing.
If I click in  non editable column, I want the grid to remain in same place.

This feature can be added as an option by adding property of grid ForceFocusinEdit.
When ForceFocusinEdit= true, if we click in readonly column, focus moves to first editable column.
When ForceFocusinEdit = false, if we click in readonly column, focus is in clicked cell.

Please refer to Ticket ID: 1168296 for more informations.
Thank you

Create a FilterControlEmptyMessage property so users can set an empty message in the grid filter textbox, much like the EmptyMessag property of RadTextBoxes.

Ideally make it so this property can be accessed/modified client and server-side.

Please provide the ability to customize the way filtering works when RenderMode=Mobile.

Allows for template filtering, and ColumnHeader filtering similar to Lightweight rendering.

I have a RadGrid with around 150 columns and a few hundred rows. Currently, I'm looping over them and setting their widths with the resizeColumn function. Unfortunately, it's triggering a recalculation of the layout every time I call this function, so the total page load time can be in the minutes.

Oddly, much of the time was spent on the line:
e.style.width=e.offsetWidth-d+"px";

Chrome's developer tools helpfully pointed me at Forced Reflow. Apparently, when a width is set, initially no extra work is done. When another width is requested, the previous width may have changed it, so the whole layout gets recalculated.

The feature I'd like to request is a function to set column widths in bulk (accepting anything like an array or a dictionary would be fine) that doesn't trigger this recalculation mid-function.

At the moment, RTL support for excel like filtering is not implemented. It displays the following issues

    - menu position is wrong (tends to show up on the column to the left)
    - controls alignment inside the menu is wrong (ltr)

You can find attached a sample and screenshots with the current behavior

I think it would be a great addition to the grid control if there was an attribute that you could apply to the columns called "SortNullsLast" or something along those lines. This attribute would modify the grid's sorting functionality and only apply the ascending or descending sort to non-null values.

Currently when you sort ascending, null values are sorted to the top of the grid. This new attribute would allow the non-null values to show up at the top in ascending order.

An example of why this would be useful is having a grid that tracks an optional requested completion date of a task. You would want to be able to sort the grid so that the earliest date shows first in the grid. Right now, any records that don't have this optional date would show first, which doesn't make sense.

I would like to suggest that the Buttons in the RadGrid allow databinding to the CommandName and CommandArgument fields.  And pretty much all the buttons or anything that triggers an ItemCommand event that allow a CommandName and CommandArgument have their properties to be databound and accessible in the code behind.

Thanks!!!

You would get something like

(([createddate] >= '01/08/2017,00:00:00') AND ([createddate] <= '14/08/2017,23:59:59'))

while you should get something like

(([createddate] >= '01/08/2017 00:00:00') AND ([createddate] <= '14/08/2017 23:59:59'))

so that the SQL syntax is valid.

RadGrid, does not send the FilterExpression to the SqlDataSource, however. It executes the SELECT statement and then filters the resulting data on its own. This works fine.

If you will be performing operations yourself, you could use a string operation before passing the filter expression. For example:

protected void RadGrid1_NeedDataSource(object sender, GridNeedDataSourceEventArgs e)
{
	if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(this.RadGrid1.MasterTableView.FilterExpression))
	{
		if (this.RadGrid1.MasterTableView.FilterExpression.Contains("createddate"))
		{
			this.RadGrid1.MasterTableView.FilterExpression = this.RadGrid1.MasterTableView.FilterExpression.Replace(",", " ");
		}
		DataView dv =GetData("select * from [myTable] where ", this.RadGrid1.MasterTableView.FilterExpression);
                //where you would need to have something like (([createddate] >= '01/08/2017 00:00:00') AND ([createddate] <= '14/08/2017 23:59:59'))
		this.RadGrid1.DataSource = dv;
	}
}

Note that implementing such a change may break existing code that relies on the current syntax that contains the comma.

Would be nice to have RadGrid offer the feature to have options to Merge Cells with same contents so the report/grid won't be so busy. Users typically expect this kind of look and feel. 

Example & code included:
    http://www.marss.co.ua/2010/01/how-to-merge-cells-with-equal-values-in.html

This ticket discussed it also: 1091013

Others in forums asked about this also in the past since about 2009, if we google on: telerik grid asp.net merge cell. .
http://www.telerik.com/forums/problems-with-merge-row-in-radgrid

http://www.telerik.com/forums/merge-cells-by-column

http://www.telerik.com/forums/merge-rows

Then I found this link among the results from google. Though, I wish there are RowMerge and ColumnMerge properties in RadGrid for us to turn it on/off. That will be wonderful.

http://www.telerik.com/support/kb/winforms/details/radgridview-merge-celss

This example is also from the following link from the same google search result, the first link.

Thanks.

radgrid exporttoexcel and all exports (word, pdf, csv, excel) should be able to export to file on server without the browser also sending the file to the client.

When using keyboard navigation, the ESC key currently does some things properly (like closing out of batch editing forms). However, it does not prevent the firing of certain update events (like BatchEditCellValueChanged). The ESC key should act like a "cancel" key, so no update events should fire when it is pressed.

The client-side KeyPress event is falling out of favor and the KeyDown even is being used more. Please implement an OnKeyDown event for the Grid, just like you currently have an OnKeyPress event

When in batch edit mode, using standard asp.net validation controls will display the validation error within the cell, and expand the cell contents horizontally and possibly vertically as well.  This is a very ugly (and clunky) way to show validation messages in a batch edit mode.  

It would be nice if instead, we could set an grid attribute that specifies a row backcolor when validation fails for a row.  In addition, show that rows validation messages automatically in a tooltip or radtooltip as the user hovers the mouse over the row when it signifies the exception backcolor.  These messages could be assigned to a columns markup as an attribute.   

Another nice to have is to show a  section on the grid (perhaps under the header) that could display to alert the user when validation had failed.

When I'm having an accessibility tool like JAWS read the numerical pager (see screenshot attached), it reads: "1 : Link", "2 : Link" etc. (and "Dot dot dot : Link" for any GridLinkButton with that text.)

I want it to read a custom message, like "Go to page {0:D}", for the numerical pager GridLinkButtons, either in the corresponding GridLinkButton's title or aria-label attribute. The custom text should preferably be retrieved from GlobalResources.

I also want to be able to provide a separate, customizable title/aria-label text for the [...] GridLinkButtons, too.

For details see support ticket #1068383.
