    Is there a way to edit grid rows in a separate view. I need to accomplish this because the modal has too much information so it needs to be displayed in a separate view.

    grid.bind("edit", function (e) {
                    window.location = '@Url.Action("AddEditCoalition","Form",new{coalitionId=Model.CoalitionId})' + '&formId=' + e.model.Id;
    The only problem is the modal shows up is there anyway to do this without the modal showing at all and it goes stratight to the seperate view?

    Hello Chrys,

    A more appropriate way to navigate to a separate view will be to use a custom command and to handle its click event in which to navigate to the other page:

        .Columns(columns => {   
            columns.Command(command => command.Custom("Edit").Click("showEditForm"));
        .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function showEditForm(e) {
            var dataItem = this.dataItem($(e.currentTarget).closest("tr"));
            window.location.href = '@Url.Action("AddEditCoalition","Form",new{coalitionId=Model.CoalitionId})' + '&formId=' + dataItem.Id;
