Hi all,

I am wanting to use a checkbox inside a telerik mvc grid.

Using the code below, the checkbox is always rendered read only; i don't know why!


.Columns(columns =>

    columns.Bound(m => m.IsRequired)
        .ClientTemplate("<input type='checkbox' name='IsRequired' value='<#= IsRequired #>' />")
        .HtmlAttributes(new {style="text-align:center"})
.DataBinding(dataBinding => dataBinding.Ajax().Select("IsRequired","Grid"))




Any thoughts?

Hello Adam,

The cause for the behavior you are experiencing is the fact that our grid component will use the MVC framework built-in template infrastructure to visualize column's data. Thus, as you may know, the default display template for boolean type will render a disabled checkbox.

Therefore, the easiest way to achieve the functionality in question will be to set column's both ClientTemplate and Template properties, taking control over the way data is displayed. 

More information on MVC's display and edit template can be found here. For information on how they are integrated in our grid component follow this link.

All the best,
the Telerik team
