    I'm trying to reproduce the custom editing sample with dropdownlist inside the gridcell.
    For some reason, the combo is not created...

    I'm attaching the project to this message.

    Do I miss any script for the project?

    Thank you in advance,

     Which custom editing example are you trying to reproduce? We currently don't see any dropdownlist or combobox code in your project. 

     I recommend checking the following resources:
     - The editor templates help topic - explains how to create a custom editor template for a model property
     - The Kendo UI for ASP.NET MVC sample application. There is a custom editing demo:

    Thank you so much for the reply!

    Pity there's no mentioning of client templates in the online sample:

    Besides, the functionality of grid (addition, editing...) doesn't work for me if the key column contains zero (0).

    Hi All,

    I am trying to bind Dropdown in one of the columns for the incell editor Kendo Grid.
    I am not sure where I am going wrong, probably some basic mistake. 

    I have a Main View Page with the Editable Grid, Another view page to populate the dropdown in cell.
    The cell in the main grid is not populating as a dropdown list, basically it is not firing the dropdown view page.
    I am not really sure where I am going wrong, probably I am doing some basic mistake.


      @using (Html.BeginForm("ReplaySelectedMessages", "Home"))
            <div id="gridContent">
        .HtmlAttributes(new { style = "font-family: verdana,arial,sans-serif; font-size: 11px;color: #333333;border-color: #999999;" })
        .Columns(columns =>
            columns.Bound(p => p.ClientAppName).ClientTemplate("# try {# #=ClientAppName# #} catch (e) {}#").EditorTemplateName("ComboBoxLookup").Width(200);
            //columns.ForeignKey(p => p.ClientAppName, (System.Collections.IEnumerable)ViewData["ClientsApplications"], "ClientAppId", "ClientAppName");
            columns.Bound(p => p.SupplierAppName).Width(200);
            columns.Bound(p => p.ListName).Width(200);
            columns.Bound(p => p.ClientValueName).Width(200);
            columns.Bound(p => p.SupplierValueName).Width(200);
            columns.Bound(p => p.Direction).Width(200);
            columns.Command(command =>  {
                .ToolBar(t => t.Create())
                .Editable(editable => editable.Mode(GridEditMode.InLine))
                .Filterable(e => e.Extra(false))
                .Pageable(page => page.PageSizes(new int[] { 10, 25, 50, 100 }).Enabled(true))
                .Scrollable(src => src.Height("auto"))
                .Resizable(resize => resize.Columns(true))
                    source => source
                        .Model(model =>
                        model.Id(e => e.MasterDataMappingId);
                        model.Field(e => e.MasterDataMappingId).Editable(false);
                        //model.Field(e => e.ClientAppName).Editable(true);
                        model.Field(p => p.ClientAppName).DefaultValue(
                    ViewData["defaultApplications"] as ViaPath.LookUpDataManagement.MvcApp.Models.MasterDataMappingModel);
                    .Create(create => create.Action("Create_MasterDataMapping", "Home"))
                    .Read(read => read.Action("Read_MasterDataMapping", "Home"))
                     .Update(update => update.Action("Update_MasterDataMapping", "Home"))
                     .Destroy(destroy => destroy.Action("Destroy_MasterDataMapping", "Home")))
                // .ClientDetailTemplateId("MasterDataListTemplate")
                // .ToClientTemplate()


    @model IEnumerable<ViaPath.LookUpDataManagement.MvcApp.Models.ApplicationsModel>    

    @using ViaPath.LookUpDataManagement.MvcApp

    @(Html.Kendo().DropDownListFor(m => m)


     public ActionResult MasterDataLookUp()
                List<MasterDataMappingModel> masterDataMappings = null;
                masterDataMappings = GetMasterDataMapping();

                ViewData["Applications"] = masterDataMappings.Select(p => new
                    ClientAppId = p.ClientAppId,
                    ClientAppName = p.ClientAppName


                ViewData["defaultApplications"] = masterDataMappings.Select(p => new
                    ClientAppId = p.ClientAppId,
                    ClientAppName = p.ClientAppName



                return View(masterDataMappings);

    Hi Dino,

    I would suggest to make sure the editor template is nested inside the "EditorTemplates" folder as mentioned in the following help article:

    If the editor template is correctly placed and still not loading - could you please open a new support ticket or forum post and provide runable example where the issue is reproduced? This would help us pinpoint the exact reason for current behavior.
