I'm using a kendo UI grid for MVC and I've managed to create a dropdown for a field in the grid using an editor template.  The only problem is that the drop-down does not default to the value that is currently in the field. Can someone explain how to do this or point me to a demo? Thanks.

Hello Scott,

 

Thank you for writing to us.

Can you open your Model C# class and check whether the corresponding field has the UIHint data attribute defined? E.g.:
        [UIHint("ClientCategory")]
        public CategoryViewModel Category 
Also, can you open the page on Chrome and check the F12 browser inspector console for any script errors interfering?


You can find a full working live demo here:

And several runnable grid-dropdownlist integration samples here:

Feel free to check these resources and let me know if they help you.
