    some of the data in my foreign key column (loaded from database) contains a # character. How do I properly escape that?

    I am loading data just like the foreign key column example in the MVC example.

    Without doing anything the grid fails to load and display anything.

    I tried a single backspace "\#" (controller complains not proper escape sequence)

    I used a double "\\#" which loads the grid but displays Item \#1 vs. Item #1

    What is the proper way to escape this # character?

    Hello Adam,

    The easiest option is to use a custom template for the column so that the data is not added to the template. I attached a sample project that demonstrates this scenario.
