    I am trying to call a function from the clientTemplate. Here's sample code. I am trying to send the value of RoleName to a translator function. In my Translate() function the value I get is "#= RoleName #" , not the value. Is this possible?


    .Columns(columns =>
        columns.Bound(c => c.RoleName).ClientTemplate(@translator.Translate("#= RoleName #")).Title(translator.Translate("ROLE_NAME")).MinScreenWidth(768);

    Hello Jokull,

    The behavior you describe occurs because the binding expression #=RoleName# is being used here as a string parameter when they should be instead evaluated client-side. 

    I encourage you to take a look at this thread in the Kendo UI Forums, it discusses an scenario similar to yours and was answered by one of the product developers.

    I hope this helps.
