    I have a grid that uses SetOptions to load the users saved state.  I am using incell editing.  After using setOptions my events for Editable no longer get hit.  Is there something I have to set manually after this like with the command buttons?

    --Below I reassign the btnEdit event to the command button

    var options = JSON.parse(response.myOptions);
    options.columns[0].command[0].click = btnEdit;


    --My cell from grid

    columns.Bound(p => p.ClearedBy).Title(text: "Cleared by").Editable("ClearedByEditable").Lockable(true);


    --My Editable Event

    function ClearedByEditable(e) {

    Alert("I am here");

    return false;

    I got the solution from the link below.  The editable function had to be added back just like the click functions.

    Hi Richard,

    I am glad to hear that you have managed to resolve the case. And I would like to thank you for sharing the answer with the community. I will go ahead and share the exact lines from that forum post which are relevant to this case:

    "JSON.stringify() cannot serialize function references (e.g. event handlers), so if stringification is used for the retrieved Grid state, all configuration fields, which represent function references, will be lost. You have two options to avoid this limitation: use a custom implementation to serialize JavaScript functions, or add the function references back to the deserialized configuration object before passing it to the setOptions method."

    Kind regards,
