I am running into the same issues as noted on this post when using DisplayFor() on a custom editor template which is called from a Kendo Grid:
Display For Issue
However, we are using our own custom HtmlHelper extension methods which have been built on top of Kendo controls to apply business logic where necessary - one of which is to either render a Kendo DropDownList or a DisplayFor depending on certain business logic.
These controls are used throughout the application - both on normal forms and within Kendo Grid Popups.
The fix in the post above will allow the DisplayFor to display information when on a Kendo Grid Popup - but won't work when the control is used elsewhere. Are there any other approaches which would fix this issue so our generic dropdownlist can be used everywhere - otherwise we would need a different control for when this is used on a Kendo Grid Popup, which would not be desirable.
Failing that, is it possible to dispense altogether with the Kendo Grid popup and instead use a Twitter Bootstrap modal to add / edit grid records?
