I have a grid which initially displays all data for my current remote query.  When a user clicks the 'Edit' button, the grid should be editable.  One of the columns will be a Kendo Dropdownlist displaying the possible selections.  I have attempted to recreate this below:

http://dojo.telerik.com/AJaKe

I could not fully create this scenario below as the dropdown is becoming locked upon clicking Edit.

My grid should have inline editing, a remote datasource, a Kendo Dropdownlist (upon clicking edit), have a remote datasource on the Kendo Dropdownlist and should have the ability to add a new row with the above requirements.

I need help modifying the above example to create the scenario I described.

Hi Ryan,

Thank you for the provided runnable example. In this case, the dataType of the DropDownList dataSource.transport.read option should be specified (for the online demos sample remote service, it is "jsonp").

When the data items of the DropDownList are complex objects, but the Grid column the widget is bound to, holds a primitive value (in this case - string), the valuePrimitive option of the DropDownList should be set to true.

Furthermore, if a column template, referencing the column name, is to be used, a default value for the respective field should be provided in the dataSource.schema.model configuration.

I have updated the dojo with the suggested adjustments:
