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) :
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.
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:
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 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.
I am having one column in each row of my radgrid in which i want to show an image. I am getting values from database saying 1,2 for that particular column and for each of these values i want to show different images for different values. For Example if i am getting 1 from database i want to show "roseImage" and for 2 i want to show "lotusimage",
I have a multiline text box on page which has style "overflow: hidden" to hide the scroll bar. I want to set the vertical hight of that text box at runtime according to the string coming from table column. Is there any way of doing it? I have tried to put the text in array but its not working....
Dim myParas As Object myParas = Split(TextBox2.Text, vbNewLine) ln = UBound(myParas) + 1 TextBox2.Height = 22 * ln
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.

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?
I am having a table in rdlc that displays the data from a dataset.

I gave the command column.ItemStyle.Wrap=true; But its not working. I have fixed the width of the column. How to wrap the text in the boundfield if a string more 15 characters.
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:-
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.
I have a column with a random length of text, basically it's an old crappy mfg system that stores data in a tilde delimited list. I need to output this column into each seperate column for a view. Column names don't matter, they can all be unnamed but so long as the data returns as seperate columns is what I'm after.
I have an aplication in asp.net MVC and using telerik grid for displaying the record. Now one of my field has some large text about 1000 character due to which the text is getting extended vertically and layout is not looking good.
Is there any way to show some specific number of character in the column and show the whole text in a tool tip on mouse hover or any other way to show the complete text for that column.
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.
