Mr Andrey Voronov
Asked On August 2, 2019 11:57 AM UTC

I am using VS 16.3.0 Preview 1.0

I would like to display "Select" button for each row in Grid

<EjsGrid DataSource="..." AllowPaging="true">
    <GridColumns>
        <GridColumn Field="ID"></GridColumn>
        <GridColumn HeaderText="Select" Width="10%">
            <Template>
                <EjsButton @onclick="...">Select</EjsButton>
            </Template>
        </GridColumn>
    </GridColumns>
</EjsGrid>

Q1. VS does not highlight <Template> tag and Grid is not displayed.
Q2. How do I pass selected ID value (column 1) to button onclick event ?

The ModelType property must be provided with named model before using template columns.

Select button now is rendered in templated column, but I am still unable to access ID value in button event handler

<EjsGrid ModelType="@DbPatientData.Empty" DataSource="@dataprovider.GeneralOffice.PatientSearchResult" AllowPaging="true">
<GridPageSettings PageSize="25"></GridPageSettings>
<GridColumns>
               ....

<GridColumn HeaderText="Select" Width="10%">
<Template>
@{
var patient = (context as DbPatientData);
}
<EjsButton ID="@($"select{patient.C_RowID}")" @onclick="@SelectPatient">Select</EjsButton>
</Template>
</GridColumn>

</GridColumns>
</EjsGrid>

@code
{
private void SelectPatient()
{
               // HOW DO I ACCESS context here ?
}
}

I figured it out: need use lambda expression:

<GridColumn HeaderText="Select" Width="10%">
<Template>
@{
var patient = (context as DbPatientData);
}
<EjsButton @onclick="@(e => SelectPatient(patient.Id))">Select</EjsButton>
</Template>
</GridColumn>


@code
{
private void SelectPatient(long id)
{
}
}

Hi Mr Andrey, 
 
Greetings from Syncfusion. 
 
Query: Unable to use <Template> tag inside <GridColumn>. 
 
We have validated your query and checked the reported problem by creating sample based on your requirement. It works fine at our end. To use templates, the grid must be bound with named model. This can be done by specifying the model type using the ModelType property of the grid component.  
 
                                             https://ej2.syncfusion.com/blazor/documentation/grid/columns/#column-template  

Here, we have rendered a template(as button) in one of the grid columns. Please find the below code example and sample for your reference. 

[code example] 
... 
<EjsGrid @ref="@grid" DataSource="@gridData" TValue="OrdersDetails" ModelType="@model" AllowPaging="true" AllowSelection="true">     
    <GridColumns> 
                  . . . . . .  
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(OrdersDetails.CustomerID) HeaderText="Customer Name" Width="150"> 
            <Template> 
                @{ 
                var order = (context as OrdersDetails); 
                <div class="image"> 
                    <EjsButton @ref="button" @onclick="@OnClick" CssClass="e-flat">Select</EjsButton> 
                </div> 
                } 
            </Template> 
        </GridColumn> 
        ... 
   </GridColumns> 
</EjsGrid> 
 
@code{ 
    EjsGrid<OrdersDetails> grid { get; set;} 
    public List<OrdersDetails> gridData { get; set; } 
    public OrdersDetails model = new OrdersDetails(); 
    ...   
 
} 
 
Query: VS does not highlight <Template> tag and Grid is not displayed. 
 
Visual Studio does not highlight the Template tag because it is same name as HTML element. But it will works as a template column of Grid.  
 
Query: How do I pass selected ID value (column 1) to button onclick event ? 
 
You can also get the ID of the selected record by using GetSelectedRecords method of the grid. Please find the below code example and sample for your reference. 
 
[code example] 
... 
<EjsGrid @ref="@grid" DataSource="@gridData" TValue="OrdersDetails" ModelType="@model" AllowPaging="true" AllowSelection="true"> 
    <GridColumns> 
                 . . . .  
        <GridColumn Field=@nameof(OrdersDetails.CustomerID) HeaderText="Customer Name" Width="150"> 
           <Template> 
                @{ 
                var order = (context as OrdersDetails); 
                <div class="image"> 
                    <EjsButton @ref="button" @onclick="@OnClick" CssClass="e-flat">Select</EjsButton> 
                </div> 
                } 
            </Template> 
        </GridColumn> 
        ... 
   </GridColumns> 
</EjsGrid> 
 
@code{ 
    EjsGrid<OrdersDetails> grid { get; set;} 
    ... 
    private async void OnClick(UIMouseEventArgs args) 
    { 
        var data = await this.grid.GetSelectedRecords();  //you can get the selected records details 
        Console.WriteLine(data[0].OrderID);                
    } 
} 
 
 
 
Note: We have created the above sample with latest NuGet version(17.2.0.40-beta) and latest source(17.2.40). 
 
If you are still facing any difficulties, could you please share the below details. It will be helpful to provide a better solution. 
 
  • Share full grid code snippets.
  • Share Essential Studio JS 2 package version details.
  • Reproduce the reported problem in the provided sample if possible.
 
Regards, 
Rahul

Rahul,

I have downloaded your template and can confirm that it works just fine. However when I try to implement this in our app I am getting this error message in the console:

blazor.server.js:15 [2019-08-05T14:50:16.099Z] Error: System.ArgumentException: Property set method not found.
   at System.Reflection.RuntimePropertyInfo.SetValue(Object obj, Object value, BindingFlags invokeAttr, Binder binder, Object[] index, CultureInfo culture)

Attached are screenshots of my implementation and classes.

Any guidance or help is very much appreciated!

Using the latest version of Blazor and Syncfusion Blazor Components (17.2.40)


Thanks

Hi ITninja, 
 
Query: I try to implement this in our app I am getting this error message in the console: Error: System.ArgumentException: Property set method not found. 
 
We have validated your query and we suspect that you have defined model class properties with read only properties(ie: without set method). Due to this the above error is occurred. We have already considered “read only properties throw exception while using inside the column template” as a bug. The fix for the issue will be included in our upcoming NuGet release which is expected to be rolled out on August 19, 2019.  
 
You can now track the current status of your request, review the proposed resolution timeline, and contact us for any further inquiries through this link   
  

Till then we appreciate your patience.  
 
Regards, 
Rahul

Hi Rahul,

You are correct, we do have read-only properties in our POCO.

Look forward to a new release that fixes this :)

My POCO model does not has readonly properties.

<Template> grid column is not displayed anymore once I added TimeSpan {get; set;} filed to the model:

We have prepared the sample by using your requirement. But unfortunately, the reported issue was not reproduced at our end. So, we have attached the  code example and prepared sample in the below link for your reference. 

@using Syncfusion.EJ2.Blazor.Grids 
 
<EjsGrid DataSource="@GridData" ModelType="@Model AllowPaging="true"> 
    <GridColumns> 
        <GridColumn HeaderText="Timespan"> 
            <Template> 
                @{   
                    <span>@timespan</span> 
                } 
            </Template> 
        </GridColumn>        
          ...    
    </GridColumns> 
</EjsGrid> 
 
@code{ 
    public List<OrdersDetails> GridData { get; set; } 
 
    TimeSpan timespan { get; set; } = new TimeSpan(365, 21, 19, 45); 
 
    public OrdersDetails Model = new OrdersDetails(); 
}
