Hi

I'm using a grid to list and edit some data items. One field is a boolean that I want to edit using checkboxes.

Following the examples I've configured the column to use a checkbox as follows:

 columns.Bound(o => o.Visible).ClientTemplate("<input type='checkbox' disabled='disabled' name='Visible' <#=Visible? checked='checked' : '' #> />");

My problem is that when it goes into edit mode the checkbox is replaced with a dropdown box with the values "Not Set", "True" & "False", and even if the value is already true it appears as "Not Set".

Can anyone suggest a way to fix this?

Thanks

Mark

Hi Mark Shortt,

 This is the default editor template rendered by ASP.NET MVC for nullable boolean fields. If you want only a checkbox you should make your property a regular boolean (not nullable). On a side note the ClientTemplate is only used in read only mode. If you want to customize the editor of your property you should create an editor template.
