C# - Truncate Text In RadGrid Column?

Jan 19 10 at 15:21

using Telerik RadGrid* in a LINQ context, with ASP.NET/C#, how to truncate text to a maximum length when displaying in columns? By maximum, I mean if original string's length is shorter than the specified maximum length, no errors will raise.I have seen many examples of this on the net, but it seems that the Container.DataItem used to achieve this is different when using LINQ. Sometimes we see DataItem as a method, sometimes not. Examples are usually using a DataSet.Here's an example found (source) :

<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Description">
<%# ValidateString(Container.DataItem("Description")) %>



C# - RadGrid Column Editable On Insert But Set To Readonly On Update?

Nov 6 10 at 1:56

I have a RadGrid which has a column like:

<telerik:GridTemplateColumn HeaderText="Car" >
<asp:Label ID="MakeLabel" runat="Server" Text='<%# Eval("Make") %> />
<asp:TextBox ID="MakeTextBox" runat="Server" Text='<%# Bind("Make") %> />
</telerik:GridTemplateColumn >

and I'm wanting to set it up so that this column will allow input when inserting new values but won't when updating values.

C# - Extra Column Appearing When Paging In Telerik RadGrid?

Oct 5 10 at 13:19

I'm getting a blank column when switching to another page using the default pager in the telerik radgrid. As data for each row, it shows the type of data i am using for the rows (SearchRecord)

Anyone have any clues as to why this may be happening? It doesn't show up on initial population of the grid, but only when I do paging. My columns are built dynamically but i confirmed that when my columns are built, they are the correct number.

Column In DataView Not Rendering When Databound To DataGrid (or RadGrid)?

Sep 7 10 at 6:51

Using ASP.NET Web Forms.I am databinding a DataView to a DataGrid with AutoGenerateColumns set to trueThe final column of the DataView is not rendering.Using the debugger I can see that the column definitely exists in the data grid's datasource. The column is of type decimal and some of the rows in the column have data in them.The column has a column name.The other columns are rendering fine.What's going on?Some more infoFunnily enough, I can set AutoGenerateColumns to false, then just add the columns manually:

foreach(DataColumn column in dataView.Table.Columns)
datagrid.Columns.Add(new BoundColumn {
HeaderText = column.ColumnName });
datagrid.DataSource = dataView;

This works fine. Why can't .NET do this with AutoGenerateColumns?

Best Practice To Manage Telerik RadGrid Grid And Column Widths?

May 25 10 at 10:12

I wanted to ask what is the best practice to manage width of the radGrid.

For my application most users are running 1280 x 1024 so I would be happy to set my overall grid width to 1100. However, depending on the form in use, I sometimes have horizantal scroll bars. To solve this, I have been playing with the width of the grid, and also I have played with setting the itemstyle-width for one or two columns. Sometimes I accidentally get it right, and sometimes it is not quite right.

What is the best way to manage this? Do I set the grid, and then all columns, or just the grid, or just the columns? I guess there is a best practice, so just wondering how you handle it,

Using Telerik RadGrid - How To Set The Date Format For Autogenerated Column In Edit Mode

May 23 10 at 11:54

Using VS2008, and Telerik radGrid version 2010.1.519.35

I have a about 50 DNN modules using telerik radgrid and I need to display my dates in dd/mm/yy format. It is possible to do this easily in view mode, but when I switch to edit mode, it is more of a struggle. I can write a snippit of code to reformat the displayed date values to dd/mm/yy, but for inserts the user must enter mm/dd/yy.

IOW, I need to change the culture of the form to en-GB culture.

In my DotnetNuke App, I have made a change to the web.config, but it still assumes en-US format.

I am not sure whether I need to set this at web.config level, page level or at the column within the control.

Web Forms :: Attempting To Truncate Fields In A GridView?

Jan 25, 2010 06:17 PM

I have been trying to figure this out and can't... I have seen this code used before but for some reason it will not work in this situation. I have a GridView and I want to truncate cells where the field length is greater than 18 characters and then show the entire contents in a tool tip. The tool tip works fine but I can't get the field contents to truncate. When I run in debugger the tc.text always shows as . but when the page renders there is content in these cells, content over 18 characters. The code never errors out it just never sees the contents as anything but "" and therefore never truncates the field contents.

DataSource Controls :: How To Truncate A String In A Database Table

Jun 14, 2010 12:11 AM

I get an error when I try to update a row in an SQL database table with a string of fewer characters than were previously stored. I attempted to correct this problem by using the "PadRight" function in my C# webpage event handler to fill in the remaining characters with spaces, but I don't seem to be able to make that work. So, what do I do when I want to store fewer characters in a table row that has more characters previously stored in it?

ADO.NET :: SQL Column Values To Display In Text Boxes

Aug 13, 2010 02:53 PM

I am hoping this is not a silly question but I have been struggling to find an answer. I have created a web application to insert data into SQL database using T_SQL and stored procedures as I needed to update several tables at the same time. The design of a particular page is using text boxes and dropdown list's and not the default gridviews or details view as I wanted the page structure set out in a particular way. Anyways I now want to create an update page which I will get redirected to from a search page.My question is how do I assign the column values to text boxes or Dropdown lists from my Select statement. I was thinking of having a event in the page load method. Sort of like this 'Select InvoiceID, Invoicetype, Notes FROM TblInvoice Where Invoicenumber = @Invoicenumber " the parameter value @Invoicenumber will be assigned via the search page so I will also need to pull that in on the page load event. So my page would look something like this if say the:-

Textbox1 = InvoiceID(Value)
DropDownnlist1 = Invoicetype(Value)
Textbox2 = Notes(Value)

how to write this in a code behind page. I would then click a button to update the values if I changed them and write my update statement for the button click event which I know how to do .

Fill Text Box With Column Value GridView Selection C#?

Sep 22, 2009 08:54 PM

I have a search box that will populate a data grid with LIKE values. For example we have product codes abc1q, abc1g, abc1c, and I am typing in abc to get a list of all. What I would like to do is be able to use that text box to search, but then be able to select a value from the GridView results and take the value of the ProductCode column and replace the abc used to search with the chosen product code.

In short if I type in abc, hit search and select abc1g from the DataGrid, I want abc1g to replace abc in the text box.

C# - Add A RadGrid To A NestedViewTemplate?

Nov 17 10 at 14:10

I am currently using Visual Studio 2008 to develop a hierarchical grid that displays records, its got 3 levels. The code looks roughly like this.

<telerik:RadMultiPage runat="server" ID="RadMultiPage1" SelectedIndex="0" RenderSelectedPageOnly="false">
<telerik:RadPageView ID="RadPageView1" runat="server">
<telerik:RadGrid ID="radGrd1">


I have ommited all the code and just provided the skeleton.

The problem i am having is that when i add the Radgrid, the intellisense does not seem to pick it up and visual studio does not add it to the designer class either.

I have tried viewing it in design view and forcing it to sync and even manually added it to the designer class myself. These solutions have not solved my problem as although the intellisense does pick up the control after adding it manually, the control itself is set to null during run time.

So basically is it possible to add a rad grid in the first place and if so what am i doing wrong.

Forms Data Controls :: Gridview Contain An Image And Text In The Same Column?

I have a 1-column gridview (and it must remain 1-column) which contains only text. My requirement is to prefix each row with an image followed by the text. The image may or may not be indented a bit, like an expanded child node in a tree.

I know a gridview renders as a table and I know I could put an image at the beginning of each row in a table (using a repeater, for example). But this is an existing app with a couple gridviews which need to be enhanced and I don't have the time to swap out the gridviews for repeaters.
