I am afraid that the requested functionality is not supported by Kendo Grid out of the box. Currently the component does not provide ability to customize the inline (row) editing template. Customization of the edit template is possible only in popup mode
If you would like to see this feature added in one of the next Kendo UI versions, I suggest you to submit a request at Kendo UI Feedback portal
. In this way the other users will be able to comment and vote for this idea. If it turns out to be popular we will consider implementing it.
Thank you in advance.
