    Hi People, I am using grids popup editor to edit the grid row. in that I am using custom editor (DropDown control) for some of field of Grid. Following is code for that Dropdown editor: 
    function prontoStratumDropDownEditor(container, options) {
                  $('<input required data-text-field="ABC" data-value-field="XYZ" name="' + options.field + '"/>')
                         dataSource: new{
                            transport: {
                                read: {
                                    url: "SomeURL",
                                    type: "get",
                                    datatype: "json",
                         filter: "startswith",
                         suggest: true,


    When I click on Edit Command of Grid, ideally dropdown should show me the name of already existing field For Eg: if grid row contain value "Animal" then when I click on Edit, by default DropDown should have "Animal" selected, but its not. I tried many things like getting rid of name property, remove required attribute etc but I do not know Why it is not showing me can anyone please help?

    Thank you for the provided code. Based on it I can assume that the issue occurs because the dataTextField and the dataValueField of the DropDown are not set:

    After setting them the scenario is working as expected:

    I hope this is helpful.
