Hi, 
I have a model like below:

public class SysUnit : BaseModel
    {
        public string Name { get; set; }
        public string Prefix { get; set; }
 
        public SysUnitGroup SysUnitGroup { get; set; }
 
    }
public enum SysUnitGroup
    {
        Money,
        Length,
        Weigh,
    }


When i used scaffold template of Telerik, it is not generating dropdown for Enum at insert and edit actions. 

I searched and try lots of things to bind enum in Grid Editview.. Is there any tutorial ?

Hi Umut,

Can you please provide more details about your difficulties with the client template and share some code that we can examine? 
Regarding your second question - you can use a dynamic type model to achieve a more generic approach. For example: 
@model dynamic
@using EnumerationEditing.Models
 
@(Html.Kendo().DropDownListFor(m => m)
        .DataTextField("Text")
        .DataValueField("Value")
        .BindTo(Extensions.EnumToSelectList(((Object)Model).GetType()))
)
