Hi all,

we are using the grid to display dynamic data returned from database with datasets. After having trouble to get the foreignkeys to display as combobox in edit-mode (relation is manually added via code), we have one minor problem left:

Where can we format the controls used in edit mode? Text-align of edit boxes, color of the datetime picker and mainly the grid displaying the foreign key relationship? Is there a way to style these controls? We are NOT using autoformat.

Thanks for your help :-)

Hi Martin,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion Products.

Yes, this is possible to disable the inline textboxes when the Grid is in edit mode. This can be achieved using RowDataBound event handler which will bound for each grid row. Please refer the simple code snippet below to achieve this for AddNew record row.

void GridGroupingControl1_RowDataBound(object sender, RowDataBoundEventArgs e)
//// Gets the Current Record Row Element Bound.
if (e.Element.Kind == DisplayElementKind.AddNewRecord)
for (int i = 0; i < e.Row.Cells.Count; i++)
/////// Check for column name.
//if (((Syncfusion.Web.UI.WebControls.Grid.Grouping.GridCell)(e.Row.Cells[i])).ColumnDescriptor.Name == "Name")
TextBox txtbox = null;
foreach (Control ctrl in e.Row.Cells[i].Controls)
if (ctrl is TextBox)
txtbox = ctrl as TextBox;
txtbox.Enabled = false;


Please try removing AutoFormat to none from the above sample and let me know if you have any concerns.

I checked it and it works, but one little problem stays open.

I use this code to format the dropdown:

Dim objDropDown As MultiColumnDropDownCombo = CType(objCell.Controls(0), MultiColumnDropDownCombo)

objDropDown.AutoFormat = "none"
objDropDown.ButtonCssClass = "SFDropDownButton"
objDropDown.ButtonHoverCssClass = "SFDropDownButton"
objDropDown.ContainerHoverCSSClass = "SFDropDownContainer"
objDropDown.ContainerTableCssClass = "SFDropDownContainer"
objDropDown.ControlRootCSSClass = "SFDropDownDefault"
objDropDown.PopupCssClass = "SFDropDownPopup"
objDropDown.TextBoxCssClass = "SFDropDownTextBox"
objDropDown.TextBoxHoverCssClass = "SFDropDownTextBox"
objDropDown.HeaderStyle.CssClass = "SFDropDownHeaderStyle"
objDropDown.ItemStyle.CssClass = "SFDropDownItemStyle"
objDropDown.HoverItemStyle.CssClass = "SFDropDownItemStyleHover"
objDropDown.ShowHeader = False
objDropDown.PopupHeight = 200
objDropDown.Columns(1).ItemStyle.CssClass = "SFDropDownItemStyle"
objDropDown.Columns(1).ItemStyle.Width = 200

Everything works, except the "HoverItemStyle". There is no property for it at the boundcolumn und the setting at dropdown level does not make any effect.
