    I would like ask how to improve  example below to display text from drop down list after save item?


    Drop down lists work as I need but after save I see id. How to change it to display text for example category name.

    Hello Mateusz,


    In the current example the columns of the grid are bound to a property from integer type. In other words the "LicenseId" is a number and it will be shown as number. My suggestion is to bound the columns to complex object ( you can use the pattern shown in the Grid / Editing custom editor with Category field). The model field "Category" is a complex object and using template it is shown the text when cell is in read only mode. Just in case you can set valuePrimitive to false for the cascading DropDownLists in order to update the grid model with a complex object instead of just the number.
