    I found a sample that features a grid working with API calls to edit a collection type object. It also shows that the three drop-downs on the grid are cascade-locked with each other. However, the sample was seriously dated and had an issue that the cell were displaying values instead of name even though the editor templates were defined properly. I have upgraded the sample to the very latest Kendo MVC and the behavior is still there and i'm not able to track it to the source. I'm following this example to create a solution to handle similar situation that I've been asking around for quite sometime now:

    Kindly inform me why the dropdowns are not taking the DisplayText

    P.S.: I didn't use NuGet to add commercial Kendo so I have deleted the CSS and JS related to Kendo. You'll have to paste in manually from you own licence.

    Hello Shafi,

    I have added the latest Kendo UI scripts and styles to the provided project and run it but the text of the dropdown is properly shown on my side. You can watch the short video test and then tell me if I am missing something -

    After making a selection in any of the dropdowns, the text disappears and is replaced by values. Also, clicking any dropdown reverts the values to first in index.
