     For some unknown reason I can't seem to get my EditTemplates to work if I have them in a folder named "EditorTemplates" in the same folder as my view containing the Kendo UI Grid (MVC) but if I put the same file in Shared/EditorTemplates it works. If I look at this example the Edit Template is setup as indicated above but is working (I guess). 



    What do I need to do to get it to work from an EditorTemplates folder in same folder as my main view?

    Have now tried to run the demo on my computer and it seem to work with the Editor template in an "EditorTemplates" folder in the same folder as the view. But I have been unable to get my project to work even though I can't find any relevant difference in code, setup etc. I'm guessing this is probably some kind of configuration issue but can't figure out what it could be?


    Again, when I move my Editor template to "Shared/EditorTemplates" it works fine, so the files themselves and their contents should be fine.

    Hello Patrik Johansson,


    Indeed as explained in the Create Custom Editor for a Bound Property article the editor template should be placed in the ~/Views/Shared/EditorTemplates folder in order to work properly. 


    The https://github.com/telerik/ui-for-aspnet-mvc-examples/tree/master/grid/custom-popup-editor/KendoUIMVC5/Views/Home project shows how to define a custom pop-up editor (when the grid edit mode is set to "popup"), not editor template for bound property.

    Thanks for responding. I see, it's a bit confusing that they use the exact same folder name "EditorTemplates" and are both referred to as "Editor templates". Also, I find this solution of putting "property editors" under shared a bit lacking, especially if you build a big site with lots of customer property editors. That said, I can also see the benefit of it for reusing the same property editors in many different places. I think the best would be to allow both options and then let the user decide which EditorTemplates folder they prefer.
