Hello,

Can you give me a complete example for dropdownlist in the editortemplates?

For now I have to change all my dropdownlist in every views like this and I Wonder if it's possible to define a generic way in EditorTemplates?

@(Html.Kendo().DropDownList()
    .Name("NoRisque") // Name of the widget should be the same as the name of the property
    .DataValueField("Value") // The value of the dropdown is taken from the EmployeeID property
    .DataTextField("Text") // The text of the items is taken from the EmployeeName property
    .BindTo((SelectList)ViewBag.NoSource) // A list of all employees which is populated in the controller
)

Hi Louis,

You can use the DropDownFor overload:

Before:
@(Html.Kendo().DropDownList()
    .Name("NoRisque")

After:
@(Html.Kendo().DropDownListFor(model => model)


Then the name of the widget will be induced from the model of the editor template.

Thank you Atanas,

In fact I complete your answer because I use ViewBag in my controller :

ViewBag.NoSource = new SelectList(db.Sources, "NoSource", "DescriptionSource_fr");

to populate the dropdownbox
@model object
 
@(
Html.Kendo().DropDownListFor(model => model)
   .BindTo((SelectList)ViewData[ViewData.TemplateInfo.GetFullHtmlFieldName("")])
)
