    Although the UI for ASP.NET MVC Grid ships with a set EditorTemplates out of the box, there does not appear to be an EditorTemplate for guids.

    There are EditorTemplates for integer, number, currency, etc but not for guid.

    Any reason why there is not any official Telerik EditorTemplate for guids?

    So what's Telerik's recommended best practice?  Create our own EditorTemplate?  Convert back/forth between guids and strings in our ViewModels?

    Hi Carl,

    We don't include an editor template for GUIDs out of the box because we don't know of any Kendo UI widget suitable for editing such kind of data. Html.EditorFor renders <input type="text"> for the GUID which you could use in your application. As far as we know the default ASP.NET MVC ModelBinder can seamlessly convert from string to Guid.
