Using RadComboBox with AutoComplete as a custom editor in RadGrid
HOW-TO Use RadComboBox with enabled AutoComplete as a custom editor in RadGrid
In some situations the developer may need to load combobox items "on demand" in a dropdown grid column editor. This is useful when presenting large number of items in that dropdown list.
You can use one of the following approaches:
- The built-in GridDropDownColumn which now supports RadComboBox. The combo is populated using the WebService.
GridTemplateColumn with RadComboBox added to the EditItemTemplate section. The combo is populated in the ItemsRequested event handler.
Both methods are used in the attached combobox-in-grid-autocomplete.zip project.
