    I have a custom popup editor that's used as the editor in a parent grid and in the nested grid of another parent grid:

    Grid 1 -> Shared Custom Popup
    Grid 2 >Tabstrip > Nested Grid -> Shared Custom Popup

    In the popup editor, I have a field "created_date" that I need to display as a string instead of an editor box. I know that for popup editors of a parent grid, I  need to use this syntax:

    ${kendo.toString(created_date, "MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm tt")}

    And for popup editors of a nested grid, I need to use this syntax:

    #= kendo.toString((created_date), "MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm tt") #

    The syntax for popup editors of a parent grid won't work for the popup editors of a nested grid and vice versa.

    How would I display a string for a field in a popup editor that's shared between a parent grid and the nested grid of another parent grid?

    Hi Emily,

    You can try to use a common JavaScript function that will return the proper template based on the grid that calls it.

    If, however, you are still having issues on the matter it would be better to create a basic dojo example with this scenario and then send it back to us, so that we can examine it locally.
