    I have found a couple solutions online if you want to use a detail view under a row in the grid control, but that is not exactly what I am looking for. I have a ASP.NET Core 2 solution and I want to be able to display "tags" that can be links in the column itself without having to do a detail drill-in. Nothing I have done to this point has worked. 

    The ArtcleViewModel has a List property of Tags. Is this impossible or am I missing something? Any help to create links per tag is appreciated without the use of a drill in detail view that the user would need to click to see.

                .Columns(columns =>
                    columns.Bound(c => c.Title).Title("Title");
                    columns.Bound(c => c.User.DisplayName).Title("Author");
                    columns.Bound(c => c)
                        .ClientTemplate("#= data.Tags[0].Name #")

    Hi, Matt,

    To iterate over a collection in the Kendo UI Grid column client template, it would be most convenient to declare a JavaScript function, for example:

    columns.Bound(c => c)
     .ClientTemplate("#= tagsTemplate(data) #")
    function tagsTemplate(item) {
      var template = "<ul>";
      for(var i=0; i< item.Tags.length; i++){    
         var tag = item.Tags[i];  
         template += kendo.format("<li>{0}</li>", tag.Name);
       template += "</ul>";
       return template;

    Here is a runnable example showing this approach in action:

    Let me know if you need further help.

    Kind Regards,

    Hello, Chris,

    I am glad to hear that you found my post helpful. Currently, only the poster can mark it as an answer but the idea to enable SO style of grading posts has been around for a long time and it would be fantastic when we get to its implementation.

    Kind Regards,
