    I am creating a grid, and the object each row is bound to contains a complex object that I want to be able to edit and update. The object has a property that is just a number, and I want to be able to see/edit/update that number in the grid. I can make the number visible easily enough using a template, but does the grid know how to allow edits/updates to the original data source?

    As an example, the object the row is bound to may look like:

    data = {
        ListPrice: {
            value: 8.99

    So, I want to show "8.99" in the grid, which I can do by defining my columns like so:

    columns: [
            field: 'ListPrice',
            title: 'List Price',
            template: '#= ListPrice.Value #'

    But, will I be able to edit this value in the grid? And how will the grid know to update the Value property when I do the edit?

    Hello Stephen,

    I am afraid that currently editing on nested properties is not supported.

    Will editing on nested properties be supported in the future? If so, any rough idea on timeline?
