Grid Multi-Select


Recommended Posts

I need to be able to select one or more rows from the grid.  I would like to know how to do this in two different manners.

 1) By selecting multiple grid rows.


2) By place a check box in a column of each row.

 Can you point me to an example of how this can be programmed using GridFX?

Unfortunately, the first selection method is not currently possible with GridFX. We understand the usefulness of such a feature and will be considering it for inclusion in a future service pack.

On the other hand, your second request is indeed possible. All you need to do is add a Template column to the grid and edit the template to drop a checkbox.

Once the textbox is added to the field, you add a button or capture a postback in order to loop through the items and check which ones have ben checked. Something like this:

protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)


  foreach (GridItem item in Grid1.Items)


CheckBox CheckOneItem = (CheckBox)item.Cells[6].FindControl("ItemCheckBox");

if (CheckOneItem.Checked)


  TextBox2.Text += item.Cells[1].Text;




Does this make sense? What operation do you need to perform on the selected items?

Template columns are easy to add through the wizard.  You just go to "Edit Layout", then go "Add New"->"Blank Template".  That will create the template column and let you edit it.

For your specific example, you could just use this markup:

<Columns><GridFX:TemplateColumn><ItemTemplate><asp:CheckBox runat="server" ID="ItemCheckBox" /></ItemTemplate></GridFX:TemplateColumn>

Does that solve your problem?
