I'm trying to get some dropdownlists in some columns in a non-editable grid (row), the reason is these column may contain more data than just 1 entry per row and a dropdown would let the user be able to quickly view the extra entries for that column.
All the examples I've seen are for editable grids (rows).
Is this even possible?
Asking because everything I've tried to date just hasn't worked.

It is possible to use widgets in the template of the Kendo UI Grid.
We have a section in the documentation about it. Have a look at it and let us know in case further questions arise:
Thank you for the reply, was pulled to another project.
I followed the example that you linked to and I'm having the same issue that I was having with the dropdownlist.
I incorporated the menu example into my non-editable grid, the menu shows up in the grid but is not clickable.
I have prepared a runnable project for your reference which features a Kendo UI DropDownList in one column and a Kendo UI Menu in another and the grid is selectable. (I assume this is what you mean by clickable).
I have added a trial version of the Kendo.Mvc.dll in the lib folder as this is a public thread so you may replace that with the local copy that you have and it should work well after restoring the missing packages.
Let me know in case you have any issues with the project or additional questions.
I was able to get everything I required working based on the original link you provided, just had some adjustments to do.
Thanks for your responses and sorry about the extra work you had to do in creating the sample project.
Thank you for the feedback. It is great to know that in this case, the documentation had everything you needed.
I am pleased to hear all is working as desired now in the project that you are working on.
