    We are trying to set a custom EditItemTemplate in batch editing. We have a div and we want to put it above the edited cell. This code is working perfect in IE but it doesn't work fine in Chrome:


    function batchEditOpened(sender, args) {
            var cell = args.get_cell();
            $cell = $(cell);
            var $batchContainer = $cell.find(".rgBatchContainer");
            $batchContainer.css("position", "absolute");

    Can you help us?


    Thanks in advance,

    Hello Alfonso,

    Can you please elaborate what exactly is the issue that you are facing in Chrome? I have tested the following example locally and the behavior is the same in IE and Chrome:
    <telerik:RadCodeBlock ID="RadCodeBlock1" runat="server">
        <script type="text/javascript">
            function batchEditOpened(sender, args) {
                var cell = args.get_cell();
                $cell = $(cell);
                var $batchContainer = $cell.find(".rgBatchContainer");
                $batchContainer.css("position", "absolute");
        <telerik:RadGrid runat="server" ID="RadGrid1" OnNeedDataSource="RadGrid1_NeedDataSource">
            <MasterTableView EditMode="Batch" AutoGenerateColumns="false">
                    <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="ID"></telerik:GridBoundColumn>
                    <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="FirstName"></telerik:GridBoundColumn>
                            <%#Eval("LastName") %>
                            <div style="width: 200px; height: 200px; background-color: lightgray;">
                                some content<br />
                                <telerik:RadTextBox runat="server"></telerik:RadTextBox><br />
                                some content
                <ClientEvents OnBatchEditOpened="batchEditOpened" />

    And the dummy data:
    protected void RadGrid1_NeedDataSource(object sender, GridNeedDataSourceEventArgs e)
        DataTable table = new DataTable();
        table.Columns.Add("ID", typeof(int));
        table.Columns.Add("FirstName", typeof(string));
        table.Columns.Add("LastName", typeof(string));
        table.Columns.Add("Age", typeof(int));
        table.Columns.Add("Date", typeof(DateTime));
        table.Columns.Add("BoolValue", typeof(Boolean));
        for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++)
            table.Rows.Add(i, "FirstName" + i, "LastName" + i, 20 + i, DateTime.Now.AddDays(i), i % 2 == 0);
        (sender as RadGrid).DataSource = table;

    Looking forward to your reply with the additional information.
