Hi guys,

I'm doing my first project on ASP.NET MVC using your grid and I need a bit of your help. I'm basing my development on the great examples you have online on Help and Demos sections.

I'm blocked and need an example with a grid with Datasource Adaptor = UrlAdaptor, EditMode=DialogTemplate with a cascade dropdownlist (selecting a value from Item0 ddl-filled when opening add/edit dialog-, fills Item1 dll using a call to the server based on Item0 selection) and also two dropdownlist more that are related to Main Item (Item2 and Item3).
I attached this images to explain a bit clear what I need:

Grid


Dialog Template


Also, would it be possible to have a tab container on Add/Edit Template Dialog where first tab has what image shows and another tab with other fields related to MainItem?

Thanks in advance, I'll be waiting for your answer.

Best regards,
 Chama.

Hi Gustavo,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.

Query1: need an example with a grid with Datasource Adaptor = UrlAdaptor, EditMode=DialogTemplate with a cascade dropdownlist

We have created a Grid sample with UrlAdaptor and DialogTemplate. We have used actionComplete event and changed event for cascading dropdown. ActionComplete event triggers every complete actions in grid. Please refer to the following code example, help documentation and sample.

GridFeatures.cshtml

@(Html.EJ().Grid<object>("FlatGrid")

                        .Datasource(ds => ds.URL(Url.Action("/DataSource")).UpdateURL(Url.Action("/DialogUpdate")).InsertURL(Url.Action("/DialogInsert")).RemoveURL(Url.Action("/DialogDelete")).Adaptor(AdaptorType.UrlAdaptor))

        .AllowScrolling()

         .AllowPaging()    /*Paging Enabled*/

                 .EditSettings(edit => { edit.AllowAdding().AllowDeleting().AllowEditing().EditMode(EditMode.DialogTemplate).DialogEditorTemplateID("#template"); })

              .ToolbarSettings(toolbar =>

                {

                 toolbar.ShowToolbar().ToolbarItems(items =>

                 {

                  items.AddTool(ToolBarItems.Add);

                  items.AddTool(ToolBarItems.Edit);

                  items.AddTool(ToolBarItems.Delete);

                  items.AddTool(ToolBarItems.Update);

                  items.AddTool(ToolBarItems.Cancel);

                });

              })

        .Columns(col =>

        {

            col.Field("OrderID").HeaderText("Order ID").IsPrimaryKey(true).TextAlign(TextAlign.Right).ValidationRules(v => v.AddRule("required", true).AddRule("number", true)).Width(90).Add();

            col.Field("CustomerID").HeaderText("Customer ID").Width(90).EditType(EditingType.Dropdown).Add();

            col.Field("ShipCity").HeaderText("Ship City").Width(90).EditType(EditingType.Dropdown).Add();

        }).ClientSideEvents(eve=>eve.ActionComplete("complete")))

We have achieved your requirement using actionComplete event. This event triggers every complete actions in grid. Please refer to the following code example and screenshot.

<script type="text/template" id="template">

    <b>Order Details</b>

        </ul>

        <div id="tab1" width="200px">

         @*Do your tab1 operations here*@

              <img src="../Content/ej/web/common-images/6.png"  />

        </div>

        <div id="tab2">

            @*Do your tab2 operations here*@

            <table cellspacing="10">

                <tr>

                               style="text-align: right; width: 116px; height: 28px" />

                    </td>

                 

                </tr>

                <tr>

                    <td style="text-align: right;">

                        Customer ID

Hi Jayaprakas,

Thanks for your help.

The code and sample you post really help me, but I'm  having problems when inserting and updating: the selection of the dropdowns is not been sent to the model.

I show you part of the code:

View:

  @(Html.EJ().Grid <Models.OrderTable> ("Grid")
        .Datasource(ds => ds.URL("GetDeviceData")
                            .InsertURL("PerformInsert")

            sort.SortedColumns(col => col.Field("Id").Add());
            sort.SortedColumns(col => col.Field("Nickname").Add());
            sort.SortedColumns(col => col.Field("Model.Value").Add());
        })
        .EditSettings(e => e.AllowEditing()
                            .AllowDeleting()
                            .AllowAdding()
                            .EditMode(EditMode.DialogTemplate)
                            .DialogEditorTemplateID("#template")
                                )
        .ToolbarSettings(tool => tool.ShowToolbar().ToolbarItems(item =>
        {
            item.AddTool(ToolBarItems.Add);
            item.AddTool(ToolBarItems.Edit);
            item.AddTool(ToolBarItems.Delete);
            item.AddTool(ToolBarItems.Update);
            item.AddTool(ToolBarItems.Cancel);

    }

and

    [Table("Devices")]
    public class Device : AuditableEntity<long>
    {
        [Required]
        [MaxLength(50)]
        [Display(Name = "Nickname")]

        public int ModelId { get; set; }

        [ForeignKey("ModelId")]
        public virtual Model Model { get; set; }
    }

The problem is that I'm not receiving the value on Model dropdown and SaveChanges fails.

What I'm doing wrong? Something that I'm missing to associate dropdown value with model field?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
 Gustavo.

Hi,

The issue was that dropdown has a different name that the model's field it should match (Dropdown name = Model, model's field= ModelId), my mistake.

You do a great job guys with Support Forum (code snippets, functional examples, etc), keep working this way!

Best regards,
 Gustavo.
