Sorry about this... Page posted accidentally.
I am trying to get a link ot appear in a Kendo grid via the code below

The link (generated via the column.template) will not display anything in the Case column.  If I do the columns.Bound(m=> m.LinkText).Title("Case"), however I do see the data displayed correctly.


I have tried something as basic as Html.ActionLink("TEST", "test"); but that doesn't display anything either.
I really need the line

 Html.ActionLink(m.LinkText, m.LinkAction, m.LinkController, new { instanceID = m.LinkInstanceID });

to work.  Any suggestions as to what I may be doing incorrectly?

Something to add to this:

I can get the link to appear if I do something like this:
columns.Template(m => Html.ActionLink(m.NotificationText, null));

but without the braces, I have no way of doing a switch statement, etc

Hi Michael,

You should output the ActionLink generated html instead of just calling the method, something similar to the following:

columns.Template(
    @<text>
        @{switch (item.LinkType)
            {
                case Titan.Entities.Enums.Notification.LinkTypes.Internal:
                    @Html.ActionLink("TEST", "test");                         
                    break;
                case Titan.Entities.Enums.Notification.LinkTypes.External:
                    break;
            }         
    } 
    </text>).Title("Case");

All the best,
Rosen
