    Hi,

     

    I have two custom editors in my Grid.

    One is a simple dropdown for a "ForeignKeyColumn" - using UIHint("MyEditor") this works fine in Inline as well as in PopUp edit mode.

    An other column using a "MultiSelect" works in Inline but not in PopUp edit mode.

    In PopUp the whole Column is not displayed.
    It is something like the territories in Northwind, where on Record can belong to multiple Territories.
    I works fine in Inline - but (for other reasons) I would need PopUp.

    I just checked your sample.

    In simple words I would say:
    InLine automatically chooses the correct editor (even in a bit more complex cases)
    PopUp needs "manual support" since it is only able to choose the correct editor for very simple things (like ForeignKey-DropDown)

    Or to me more specific - with InLine mode I get "RAD" (RAPID...) with PopUp I have to fiddle with templates and such things.

    Are there any plans to enhance PopUp mode so that it is able (out of the box) to choose correct editor just by using "Datatype" attributes (or UIEditor hints) like Inline mode does?

    Hello ManniAT,

     

    Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. 

     

    I can forward your suggestion to your developer team for consideration, but at this point we do not have plans for such enhancement.
