first, thanks for trying to help, appreciated.
Your answer doesn't solve my problem, and sorry if my question might have confused you, I shouldn't have used the word 'selected' row. I really meant to have an edit button in an action/command column for every single record of the grid, and on-click, a popup appears and displays a form to edit the record (exactly like in the demo example link
However, the 'key' word here is MVVM
(Model-View-ViewModel, a different flavor of MVC approach), this is what will make the solution (in terms of coding / approach) completely different from the example I've linked. If you don't know yet about Kendo' new MVVM coding approach, I invite you to go and read about it on their website (MVVM Overview
), and there's even a demo section about it (MVVM Demo
), but sadly lacking an example of what I am currently asking in this thread...
I really think that this MVVM approach is very promising for the future of Kendo UI, and that's why I currently want to explore this avenue by building a web app using this approach, but not sure it is mature enough for me if I can't resolve this issue.
