I have a basic Telerik Grid using Batch Edit Mode. This all works great but I have had feedback from User Testing that it is not initially obvious the grid is being used for Data Entry. 

Is there a way I can show the Cells that are editable, by always showing the Inputs / Select Dropdowns without the user having to focus onto the cell first?

I have attached a picture of how the grid looks currently, I would like the inputs / select dropdowns to be visible all the time.

Hello,

A possible approach for achieving such an appearance is demonstrated in the Knowledge Base article linked below:

https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/knowledge-base/grid-dropdownlist-column-template

Note, that as marked in the article - The implementation of this functionality can lead to slow Grid performance.

Let me know in case you have additional questions.
