Description

How can I add a link in grid template that will redirect to another page in my application and select a row from another grid?

Suggested Solution

To add a link to the grid, you can use the rowTemplate and pass the dataItem id as part of the url. Then, on the other page, use the grid databound event to parse the url parameters and the grid select() method.

  • The anchor element will create a URL with a dynamic query id parameter:
    <a href="https://runner.telerik.io/fullscreen/oDUzU?id=#:data.EmployeeID#"/>                
        <img src="../content/web/Employees/#:data.EmployeeID#.jpg" alt="#: data.EmployeeID #" />
    </a>
  • On the other page, parse it and select the row
    dataBound: function() {
          var id = getUrlParameter('id');

          if(id && id > 0 && id < 10){
            var record = this.dataSource.get(id),
                uid = record.uid,
                row = this.tbody.find("tr[data-uid='" + uid + "']");
            this.select(row);
          }
    }

    function getUrlParameter(sParam) {
        var sPageURL = decodeURIComponent(window.location.search.substring(1)),
            sURLVariables = sPageURL.split('&'),
            sParameterName,
            i;

        for (i = 0; i < sURLVariables.length; i++) {
          sParameterName = sURLVariables[i].split('=');

          if (sParameterName[0] === sParam) {
            return sParameterName[1] === undefined ? true : sParameterName[1];
          }
        }
    }
