Telerik RadGrid Control (Step by step usage

Posted on 2010-01-08
Last Modified: 2012-05-08
Hi Experts,
I've just started on a project where they are using the Telerik's RadControls.  They look great but I am unsure even where to begin with the controls.  I'm specifically trying to learn the RadGrid.  What I need is a grid on top that users can pick from a list, the click on the line to edit in a form below, or click the trash can icon to delete the item.  Ideally I'd like to allow them to sort/filter at some point also but that can wait.  How the heck do I begin here?  I've used the regular grid control and it seems pretty straightforward, bind it and there you go.  The examples at the Telerik site are so packed with features mixed with the other controls that I cannot sort out what belongs to who.  Anyone know of some simple examples of using the RadGrid?  Preferably written, I have hearing issues and the videos are not the best for me.  Are there any books, articles, whitepapers, etc. that can walk me through using them?  I haven't been doing a lot of coding of late getting drafted more for easing clients concerns and doing business analysis.  So need to ease back into but naturally I'm being thrown in the deep end.

Thanks in advance

    hi All,
    sorry for not getting back to this earlier.  I did look at the demos but they seemed to fully built solutions rather then step by step lets build something samples.  I did intstall the monster solution provides but taking that apart is like playing with dynamite.  Take the wrong thing out and suddenly the control cannot render and your SOL.  Any other ideas?
