    Hi, I'm in the middle of evaluating if I'm going to switch to Telerick (currently using DevExpress) and one of the control that is critical to my project is (what they call) the GridLookup. Essentially it's a combox which the user pulls down, showing a grid from which rows can be (multi)selected

    It needs to be available for MVC (not ajax) and needs to be able to bind to SignalR. I don't know if that matters but I'm using VS 2013, ASP.NET (MVC), C#.

    I've played around with the multi-select and a custom multi-columns combobox but they lack the grid's extra capabilities (such as grouping, filtering, sorting, etc..).

    Any chance I can get to the same result (or close) using Telerik's component(s)?


    Thank you :)

    Hi Jean-Philippe,

    Currently we do not have a GridLookup widget, although similar behavior could be achieved by customizing the Kendo UI MultiSelect. Basically, the headerTemplate can render the column titles, where click event handlers can modify the DataSource options, such as sorting, filtering and etc. I would also encourage you to vote for this similar suggestion on our feedback portal, or submit a new one.
