Hi,

We are using kendo grid in angularjs way and in one column we are showing numbers. There is a button outside the grid and we want that on click of the button, we should be able to edit the numbers, i.e. the column showing numbers, each cell in the column should now have a text box and the number in it. Can you please let me know how can I change the template of the column at run-time (on click of a button) to now have text box and the number that was bound, within the textbox?

Appreciate your quick reply.

Thanks,
Sagar

Hi, Ankush,

The provided answer was as follows:

------------------------------------

Editing of multiple items at once is not a supported one. Only a single item can be edited at a time and you could put it programmatically in edit mode via the editCell() method.

An alternative would be to have editors in the column templates as demonstrated in this how-to article:

https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/controls/data-management/grid/how-to/Editing/grid-editors-in-column-templates

Before deciding if this approach is suitable for your concrete scenario, consider the grid performance article here:

https://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/controls/data-management/grid/performance#excessive-use-of-editors-or-widgets-in-cells
