Customizing editor behavior

The look and behavior of grid editors can be changed programmatically. This can be done either in CellBeginEdit or in CellEditorInitialized events.

  • CellBeginEdit: Fired when the editor is created.

  • CellEditorInitialized: Fired when the editor is created and initialized with a predefined set of properties.

The following sample demonstrates how to change the default ForeColor of GridSpinEditor:

void radGridView1_CellBeginEdit(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.UI.GridViewCellCancelEventArgs e)
    GridSpinEditor editor = this.radGridView1.ActiveEditor as GridSpinEditor;
    if (editor != null)
        ((RadSpinEditorElement)editor.EditorElement).ForeColor = Color.Red;

Private Sub RadGridView1_CellBeginEdit(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Telerik.WinControls.UI.GridViewCellCancelEventArgs) Handles RadGridView1.CellBeginEdit
    Dim editor As GridSpinEditor = TryCast(Me.RadGridView1.ActiveEditor, GridSpinEditor)
    If editor IsNot Nothing Then
        CType(editor.EditorElement, RadSpinEditorElement).ForeColor = Color.Red
    End If
End Sub
