About RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX
When working with DataGrids, fast loading of large data while having advanced Excel-like
operations has always been a challenge. Having solid experience in web technologies,
we designed our AJAX powered ASP.NET Grid to eliminate this tradeoff. Codeless databinding,
rich client-side operations, and a myriad of features topped with unbeatable performance
is what defines the Telerik RadGrid for ASP.NET AJAX.
RadGrid and 70+ other controls are part of
RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX, a comprehensive toolset taking care of the
common functionality of your application, while leaving you with more time to work
on the business logic of the app.
About This Demo
This example demonstrates some of the most popular capabilities of RadGrid working
together in a rent-a-car scenario. The car details are displayed with the help of
the NestedViewTemplate. The booking form resides within a RadWindow control's ContentTemplate
and contains two ASP.NET Panels that are switched dynamically at runtime. The columns
in this RadGrid use three different filter setups:
- - built-in filter controls
- - filter template with RadComboBox bound to LinqDataSource control
- - filter template with RadComboBox containing static (declarative) items
The multi-column headers are also demonstrated here. All the columns are grouped
within parent groups which help the visitors easily distinguish the information
The Save Settings button uses the GridSettingsPersister helper to save
the settings for the current user. In this example, the aforementioned settings
are compressed with GZIp, encoded with Base64, and finally saved into a browser
The databinding is performed within the NeedDataSource event thus taking advantage
of the advanced data-binding capabilities offered by RadGrid.
