Data Attributes in Row

This demo demonstrates the use of the data-toggle attribute to declaratively assign an action to a control displayed within a data item template. In this demo, each data row displays custom Edit and Delete buttons. The Edit button's data-toggle attribute is set to gridview-datarow-edit allowing the button to start editing the current row on click. Likewise, the Delete button's data-toggle attribute is set to gridview-datarow-delete allowing the button to delete the current row. Additionally, the Title Panel template contains a custom button whose data-toggle attribute is set to gridview-newrow allowing the button to create a new data row.

Sparkline Column

This demo demonstrates how to display the Bootstrap Sparkline within a grid cell in browse mode. In this demo, each data row displays a sparkline illustrating sales dynamics. Since the amount of data presented by a single sparkline is large and the DataItemTemplate can be rebuilt several times per request, it is recommended that you store the sparkline data in a cache variable after obtaining it from the data source. The BootstrapGridView.EnableRowsCache property should be set to False to prevent incorrect deserialization of a custom object used as a BootstrapSparkLine data source.
