Hi,

I'm currently trying out the Kendo UI and I have a question regarding grid editing. In webforms you have a edit mode called editform, meaning you get a form with editors just below the row like this:

http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-ajax/grid/examples/data-editing/edit-form-types/defaultcs.aspx 

Given that you can also include hidden columns in the editform this is IMO by far the best UX for grid editing. Popup will confuse the user slightly as they lose track of which row they are editing, and with inline editors you will only be able to edit visible columns.

So my question is this: Is it possible to somehow use editform for the Kendo grid? I know, anything is possible, but how can this be done? I'd love Telerik to add this feature as a standard edit mode, but if not can it be done through custom templates somehow?
