Thank you SO much for you help, my inline grid functionality has grown considerably since this post due to you advice. This is the first inline Grid I've done, so it allowed me to explore the dataSource.schema attribute in more depth, which has been helpful. In the past I've been using custom windows to capture data, but now that my understanding has grown, I may be able to use the built in popup in the future (very exciting!).
This work has lead me to a couple questions I was hoping you could answer, I've updated the demo for this, http://dojo.telerik.com/OPEXO/4
1) If you look at line 44, inside the editor Im initializing a kendoNumericTextBox, how would I dynamially set the max attribute here to the next number in the 'Escalation Level' sequence, in this case 4?
2) I also need to dynamically set the default values for both 'escalationLevel' and 'escaltionAfterDuration', details on lines 101 and 120 respectively.
Once again, thanks for the help, much appreciated,
