ASP.NET MVC Grid Inline Editing

Loading Demo...

Also available for:



The Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC Data Grid supports an inline editing mode. As a result, users are able to edit the content of th eData Grid cells by simply clicking the Edit row button, then modify the data inside the cell, and, finally, save or discard the changes by using the Update or Cancel buttons.

This demo shows how to implement the inline editing feature of the Data Grid by using the create, update, and destroy data operations of the component.

To enable its inline editing capabilities:

  1. Set .Editable(editable => editable.Mode(GridEditMode.InLine)).
  2. To allow the insertion of new Data Grid records, you need to add the New Record button in the toolbar of the component—.ToolBar(toolbar => toolbar.Create()).
  3. To enable the Edit and Delete commands on each row, insert a new column by setting columns.Command(command => { command.Edit(); command.Destroy();});.
  4. Define the Create, Read, Update, and Destroy action methods to the DataSource declaration. These methods are responsible for the manipulation of the data items.
  5. Specify a unique field in the Model as the DataSource.Model.Id.

For more information about the editing capabilities, refer to the official Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC Data Grid product documentation on the available inline editing approaches.
