    I am working with the good example of Editing custom editor under the MVC examples.
    It shows how to build a dropdownlist for use when editing a cell in a grid.
    I have to create a new post in the grid and I add the following to the file; Editing_Custom.cshtml:

    .Create(create => create.Action("EditingCustom_Create", "Grid"))
    .ToolBar(toolBar => { toolBar.Save(); toolBar.Create(); })

    And I already get an error here before I come to do the coding in the .cs-file.
    When debugging with firebug, I get an error from javascript that says: ReferenceError: EnrollTypes is not defined.
    EnrollTypes is the class that is used for making the dropdownlist.
    Could someone please give me a hint on what I have to do when creating a post in a grid with relational data?

    I saw in some forum that Foregin key will sove this problem, but in my case there is no key column which can be named as foreign key. I just want to have a dropdown in grid column and it should also appear when I click on Add New Item button.

    Hi Nandan,

    Most probably the insertion command in the toolbar fails because the default value(object) EnrollTypes is not defained.
    You could try to specify it like this:
                .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
                        .Model(model =>
                            model.Id(m => m.PersonID);
                            model.Field(c => c.BirthDate).DefaultValue(new DateTime(2012, 12, 30));

    I hope this helps.

    All the best,
