I am fairly new to using the kendo UI and have a question on if an option is viable before I try to do too many items.  I've looked to see if anyone else has tried something similar but have not ran across any posts.

What I am attempting to do is have a grid (GRID A) which has two columns.  ID, Description.   The trick to this is, when editing / adding rows to this grid, on the edit form I need to be able to have a second grid (GRID B) shown that the user can search/filter for a specific record, then selecting that will populate the ID for the row in GRID A.  (Grid A's ID field is a reference to a second table represented by GRID B which will have initially around 2000-3000 rows... a taaaaaaaad large for a dropdown)

The Description field would be a regular edit field.

If the above is not possible, the alternative I was thinking of was to have the two fields on the edit form w/ a button next to ID that would open a modal dialog w/ the second grid in it.

Has anyone ever attempted such a beast?

Thank you for any information.
