    We have an requirement that allow a user to enter multiple records at a same time. As I have seen the demo, I feel the batch editing is good option for us.

    But we might have a issue that, we need to allow user to select a data from different controls such as Dropdown list, Datepicker and may be some other. In one of the demo sample, I have seen that Dropdown list is added to a column by specifying Foreign Key column mapping (If I am not wrong, that has been done by using Entity Framework).
    We are using Model class as source to bind the Grid and we are not using Entity Framework here. By binding Model class is it possible that, we can add these different controls to the columns and is there any examples or sample code?

    Hi Venkat,

    Please note that using the EntityFramework is not required for the custom editors in the Grid columns. For more information about how to specify custom editors you can check the following help article:

    Also for convenience I included small example of defining ForeignKeyColumn that is bind to data from repository that uses local data (no DataBase) which you can use as baseline.
