I'm creating a custom Editor for TEXT AREA for my Kendo Grid. The grid will have in-line editing.

I was wondering if I could reuse the same editor for other columns as well ?

Code:

<%@ Control Language="C#" %> <textarea id="Description" name="Description" class="k-textbox"></textarea>

 

For example the above code can bind to column Description but what if I want to use it for another column such as Address ?

How to do it ?

Hello,

Indeed an editor can be reused for more than one column. I prepared a sample  http://dojo.telerik.com/ilOsE example that shows how to define a text area editor for the ProductName column using the columns.editor option. In the function handler there is nothing specific for the ProductName, so it can be used for any string column.

Hi,

Can you give an example using ASP.Net MVC ?

Hello,

Please refer to the code below: 

@(Html.Kendo().Grid<KendoGridAjaxEditing.Models.ProductViewModel>()
      .Name("grid")
      .Columns(columns =>
      {
          columns.Bound(product => product.ProductID).Width(100);
          columns.Bound(product => product.ProductName).EditorTemplateName("TextAreaTemplate");
          columns.Bound(product => product.UnitsInStock).Width(250);
          columns.Command(commands =>
          {
              commands.Edit(); // The "edit" command will edit and update data items
              commands.Destroy(); // The "destroy" command removes data items
          }).Title("Commands").Width(200);
      })
      .ToolBar(toolbar => toolbar.Create()) // The "create" command adds new data items
      .Editable(editable => editable.Mode(GridEditMode.InLine)) // Use inline editing mode
      .DataSource(dataSource =>
          dataSource.Ajax()
            .Model(model =>
            {
                model.Id(product => product.ProductID); // Specify the property which is the unique identifier of the model
                model.Field(product => product.ProductID).Editable(false); // Make the ProductID property not editable
            })
            .Create(create => create.Action("Products_Create", "Home")) // Action invoked when the user saves a new data item
            .Read(read => read.Action("Products_Read", "Home"))  // Action invoked when the grid needs data
            .Update(update => update.Action("Products_Update", "Home"))  // Action invoked when the user saves an updated data item
            .Destroy(destroy => destroy.Action("Products_Destroy", "Home")) // Action invoked when the user removes a data item
      )
      .Pageable()
        )

Editor template: 

@model object
 
@Html.TextAreaFor(model => model)

The template view should be placed in the  ~/Views/Shared/EditorTemplates folder. For more information please refer to Editor Templates article.

Hi I'm using a file upload editor.

Here's the code:

<%@ Control Language="C#" >
 
  <%: Html.Kendo().Upload()
            .Name("Image")
            .Multiple(false)
            .Validation(validation => validation.AllowedExtensions(new string[] { ".gif", ".jpg", ".png", ".jpeg", ".bmp" }))
            .HtmlAttributes(new { accept = "image/*" })          
  %>

 

How to implement it here?

Hello Nigel,

I am not sure that I completely understand what you are trying to achieve. Uploading a file with the Kendo UI Upload widget should update the model field with the file name or something else?

Hi Boyan,

I'm using in-line editing mode and I want to change a URL column in the grid to a file upload control when I click edit.

The file upload control should have the name and id of the model property.

I managed to do it for a specific column name but I wanted to use the editor for other grid where column name is different.

Hello,

The Kendo Upload for ASP.NET MVC does not have view helper For (as @(Html.Kendo().ComboBoxFor)  so individual editor template should be defined for specific column (with Name for the column).
