Hi,

I am trying to implement a Grid with inline editing capability. Everything works fine except for the Create functionality. I am using a string for the Model Id.

.Model(model =>
{
    model.Id<string>(p => p.SalesRep.Id);
}

Here is what happens.. 
1) Click on Add New Record
2) Add a record in the client
3) Update any information
4) Clicking Update fires the Update action instead of create.

This is the example I am following: http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-mvc/grid/editing-inline

I am not sure why the update action is being fired instead of create.

Could this be because of the Model Id is  a string. 

Below is a code snippet of the kendo grid. 
@(Html.Kendo().Grid<SalesRepViewModel>()
                                   .Name("SalesRepsGrid")
                                   .Columns(columns =>
                                   {
                                       columns.Bound(p => p.SalesRep).ClientTemplate("#=data.SalesRep.Name#");
                                       columns.Bound(p => p.SplitPercentage).Width(100);
                                       columns.Command(command => { command.Edit(); command.Destroy(); }).Width(172);
                                   })
                                   .ToolBar(toolbar => toolbar.Create())
                                   .Editable(editable => editable.Mode(GridEditMode.InLine))
                                   .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
                                      .Ajax()
                                      .Events(events => events.Error("error_handler"))
                                      .Model(model =>
                                      {
                                          model.Id<string>(p => p.SalesRep.Id);
                                          model.Field(p => p.SalesRep.Id).Editable(false);
                                          model.Field(p => p.SplitPercentage).Editable(true);
                                          model.Field(p => p.SalesRep).DefaultValue(
                                                         ViewData["defaultSalesRep"] as NamedReferenceBindingModel<string>);
                                           
                                      })
                                      .Read(read => read.Action("SalesReps_Read", "PurchaseAgreement"))
                                      .Create(update => update.Action("SalesReps_Create", "PurchaseAgreement", new {                 purchaseAgreementId = Model.Id }))
                                      .Update(update => update.Action("SalesReps_Update", "PurchaseAgreement", new { purchaseAgreementId = Model.Id }))
                                      .Destroy(destroy => destroy.Action("SalesReps_Destroy", "PurchaseAgreement", new { purchaseAgreementId = Model.Id }))
                                     )
                              )

Most of the code above is same telerik grid inline editing example except for the model.

Any thoughts?

Looks like model Id cannot be a property with a property.

.Model(model =>{    model.Id<string>(p => p.SalesRep.Id);}

If I change my model to have an Id, it will work.

.Model(model =>{    model.Id<string>(p => p.Id);}

Hi Uday,

Basically the setting the model ID to nested property is not supported as the DataSource checks if current record is new by comparing the current value against the default value for current field. That why I would strongly suggest to flatter your model using ViewModel.

Vladimir,

It makes total sense to me now. I ended up flattening my view model and it worked.

Thanks for your time.
