ASP.NET MVC Grid Popup Editing

Loading Demo...

Also available for:



Some scenarios require the Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC Data Grid not only to visualize data in a table structure, but also to support editing of its row content in a popup edit form.

This demo shows how to edit or insert new Data Grid items through a popup window by configuring the component in the following way:

  1. Activate the popup editing by setting .Editable(editable => editable.Mode(GridEditMode.PopUp)).
  2. To allow the insertion of new records, add the New Record button to the toolbar of the component—.ToolBar(toolbar => toolbar.Create()).
  3. To enable the Edit and Delete commands for each row, insert a new column—columns.Command(command => { command.Edit(); command.Destroy(); });.
  4. Declare the Create, Read, Update, and Destroy action methods in the DataSource. These methods are responsible for the manipulation of the data items manipulation.
  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 popup editing approaches.
