    I have a grid that uses a datatable as the mode. Here's the code for the grid:

                    .Name( "Grid")
                    .Columns( columns =>
                        foreach ( DataColumn col in Model.Columns)
                            var c = columns.Bound(col.ColumnName);
                            // handle special cases here, e.g. putting things in footer of grid
                        columns.Command(command => { command.Edit(); command.Destroy(); }).Width(250);
                    .ToolBar(toolbar => toolbar.Create())
                    .Editable(editable => editable.Mode(GridEditMode.PopUp).TemplateName("UsersEditAdd").Window(w => w.Title("Add or Edit User")))
                    .Pageable(pager => pager
                    .Scrollable(s => s.Height(500)) //////////////////////// hard coded height
                    .DataSource( dataSource => dataSource
                        .Model( model =>
                            // two lines below are in demo code. I get an index out of bounds from the next line
                            //var id = Model.PrimaryKey[0].ColumnName;
                            model.Id("AgentID"); // this is required
                            foreach ( DataColumn col in Model.Columns)
                                var field = model.Field( col.ColumnName, col.DataType);
                        .Read( read => read.Action("Read","Home"))
                        .PageSize(40) /////////////////////////////////////// hard coded items per page
                        .Create(update => update.Action("EditingPopup_Create", "UsersGrid"))
                        .Update(update => update.Action("EditingPopup_Update", "UsersGrid"))
                        .Destroy(update => update.Action("EditingPopup_Destroy", "UsersGrid"))
                    .Resizable(resize => resize.Columns(true))
                    .Reorderable(reorder => reorder.Columns(true))
                    .HtmlAttributes(new { style = "height: 550px" })  /// does control the height


    The grid loads with data and an Edit button. When I click the Edit button, a screen pops up based on the columns and data in the grid row. But I want the edit button to bring up the view named UsersEditAdd. I created UsersEditAdd.cshtml in the same directory as the view with the grid.

    I was looking at a similar posting, and it seems that I shold be seeing the view I created. But, no.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Also, I'm currently using an evaluation version.

    Hi Andrew,

    In order to use a custom popup editor you need to add a partial View to the ~/Views/<GridViewName>/EditorTemplates. If the partial view is in the same directory as the view with the Grid the custom editor will not be found. Try to change the location of the custom editor and let me know how it works for you

    With that said, you can find the example below helpful. It illustrates how to define a custom popup editor for the Grid component.
