Hi Guys! 

First of all, sorry for my English.

I have a little problem with the inline edit feature.

In my dataSource I have these columns:

            columns =
                    { id: 1, field: 'name', title: 'Name'                    },
                    { id: 2, field: 'extra_info', title: 'Extra Info'              },
                    { id: 3, field: 'localnames[0]', title: 'Localname 1', template: "#=name#" },
                    { id: 4, field: "localnames[1]", title: 'Localname 2', template: "#=name#"  },
                    { command: [{ name: "edit", text: "Edit" },{ name: "destroy", text: "Remove" }] }

In my list, i have an array "localnames", and when I was rendering the grid, in the column "Localname 1" and "Localname 2" the text was showing [Object]. To solve this I used "template: "#=name#"" to render the name of the object localname[0].

But now, while I'm using the inline-edit, when I click on the edit button, the grid show me [Object] to edit. How can I solve this?
Anyone had this problem before?

Thanks for your help and sorry for my English.

Hello David,

This happens because the column's field option points to an object. Specifying the exact property of the objects should resolve the issue. For example: 
{ id: 3, field: 'localnames[0].name', title: 'Localname 1'},

I would also recommend specifying a default value for the localnames field, otherwise new items will produce errors. For example: 
schema: {
  model: {
    fields: {
      localnames: {defaultValue: [{name: ""}, {name: ""}]}
