    I have in my View the following:


    columns.Bound(o => o.line.ApprovalBy.UserDisplayName)
    columns.Bound(o => o.line.ItemNumber)


    Using JQuery,I am able to edit the Item Number line with the following:


    ('#grid').data('kendoGrid') = 155


    However, when I try to edit Approval By which is by default set to null with the following:


    ('#grid').data('kendoGrid') = {UserID: 50}


     It returns an "undefined" in the grid for some reason.

    When I try to edit an object that has been initialized previously, it would be able to work:


    columns.Bound(o => o.line.Vehicle.Color);

    ('#grid').data('kendoGrid') = "red";


    What am I missing?

    Hi Duncan,

    Current behavior is expected when trying to set nested fields of field which is null - in current case I would suggest to either set default value for the "line" field or manually set it's value before trying to set the child field value.
