    Is any way to access kendo controls in EditorTemplate?

    If I have

    @Html.Kendo().DropDownList().Name("Name1").HtmlAttributes(new { style = "width:100%;" })

    int EditorTemplate

    In Edit event of grid or inside EditorTemplate attempt to access kendo controls returns undefined value like

    $("#Name1").data("kendoDropDownList") is undefined.


    It undefined in edit event, it undefined anywhere I believe due to control is not being initialized yet.

    Hi Dima,

    Note that when defining an editor template the Name of the widget should correspond to the name of the field in the DataSource. 

    Alternatively you can use the [WidgetName]For format and remove the Name() property. In this case it will be set automatically.

    If you would like more information on editor templates you would find the article below interesting.
