I am trying to choose a different template for a popup editor depending on whether a new entry is inserted or an already existing one is modified. I am aware that I probably have to subscribe to the "beforeEdit" event of the grid and act depending on whether e.model.isNew() returns true or false.
However, I was not able to set a different template based on this decision yet. Could you please outline what the cleanest way for doing this would be?
So far my code looks similar to this:
c.Command(cmd => cmd.Edit()).Width(120);
c.Command(cmd => cmd.Destroy()).Width(120);
.Read(o => o.Url("CodeManagement?handler=Read").Data("forgeryToken"))
c.TemplateName("Promotion"); // using a static template right now, we want to change that
Moreover, in the Edit-template, I have to constrain a DatePicker based on some model properties. However, the Model field is not set which leads to a NullReferenceException. Is there any way to set the Model field of the template to the entry that is currently being edited/created?
