Telerik RadGrid Custom Edit Form With Date Picker

I have a custom edit form in a Telerik RadGrid where I'm trying to get the dates to bind to the RadDatePicker controls. The problem is, when I bind the date to the control, it will not allow the form to show on insert because there is no date to bind on a new insert.  I have tried binding in the code behind and also in the main page using "Container is GridEditFormInsertItem" but I keep getting "Object reference not set to an instance of an object".

Any help would be appreciated.
<telerik:RadDatePicker ID="itemLastPurchaseRadDatePicker" runat="server" Width="150px"
        Culture="en-US" DateFormat="M/d/yyyy" DisplayDateFormat="M/d/yyyy" ShowPopupOnFocus="true"
        SelectedDate='<%# ((Container is GridEditFormInsertItem) ? false : Bind ("ItemVendorLastPriceDate"))  %>'>
</telerik:RadDatePicker>

Open in new window

I tried this in the code behind as a separate try to no avail.

 Private Sub RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As Telerik.Web.UI.GridItemEventArgs) Handles RadGrid1.ItemDataBound

        If (TypeOf e.Item Is GridEditFormItem AndAlso e.Item.IsInEditMode) Then
            Dim editFormItem As GridEditFormItem = CType(e.Item, GridEditFormItem)
            Dim parentItem As GridDataItem = editFormItem.ParentItem
            Dim dateVendorLastPurchaseDate As RadDatePicker = CType(editFormItem.FindControl("itemLastPurchaseRadDatePicker"), RadDatePicker)
            Dim lastPurchaseDate As String = parentItem("ItemVendorLastPriceDate").Text
            If lastPurchaseDate <> "" Or lastPurchaseDate IsNot Nothing Then
                dateVendorLastPurchaseDate.SelectedDate = lastPurchaseDate
            End If
End Sub

Hi,

I would first ask you to use the try catch block surrounding the code

or

use the breakpoints  to find which line of code is actually throwing up the error.

Once we find which line is actually causing the problem we will take it from there coz from what I see your code should work fine.

So on my ItemDataBound event for the insert, what when I use a Try/Catch is:

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at DesktopModules_Inventory_inventoryMain.RadGrid1_ItemDataBound(Object sender, GridItemEventArgs e)

I got it! I just added "And RadGrid1.MasterTableView.IsItemInserted = False" to my If statement on the ItemDataBound and it all worked like a charm! Thanks for the feedback and thanks to the moderators for helping me reclassify this!
