    I want to display a custom dropdownlist for an editable column. I see raw query examples that set an editor property that calls some function but I couldn't figure out how to make this work with mvc. What other options do I have available that are inline within the same page as the grid?

    Another example is for a lookup control. I want to display a readonly textbox with a ... button that will launch another modal lookup dialog.

    I need a solution that is inline with the page and doesn't involve me customizing my business objects with uihints or adding partial pages just for a column editor.

    To specify the name of the template from the view with the MVC Grid, you can use the column EditorTemplateName method e.g.

    columns.Bound(p => p.MyProperty).EditorTemplateName("MyTemplate");
    For the lookup, I can suggest to open a Window when the button is clicked. Regards,
