     Am using Javascript for rendering a Kendo Grid.  In Grid Edit pop up i have a script Template which is an MVC Kendo Template below,

    <script id="popup-editor" type="text/x-kendo-template">                 


    @(Html.Kendo().DatePickerFor(m => m.USReleaseDate).HtmlAttributes(new { @class = "form-control", placeholder = "US Release Date" }).Deferred())                </div>


     Following is my Kendo Editor pop up template code in javascript

    template: kendo.template($("#popup-editor").html())

    which is perfectly rendering values as expected.


    However the problem is, the controls inside the pop up is a plain Html control (<input>) instead of kendo date picker. As i read in the forum, i tried to initialize it below the template like this


    $(function () {         

    var usReleaseDate = $("#USReleaseDate");        

     if (usReleaseDate) {             

    $("#USReleaseDate").kendoDatePicker( {    

     "format": "MM/dd/yyyy",    

     "min": new Date(1900, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0),     

    "max": new Date(2099, 11, 31, 0, 0, 0, 0) });        



    but of no use.  How can i render kendo controls within a popup editor?

    I need it especially for Razor syntax, because when i use data-role attribute in the Template (using Html 5) the control is rendering, but it would be great if i get the same in razor syntax where model binding will occur by default

    Hello Stephan,

    I suspect that the widget is not initialized as it is set for deferred initialization. This will result in the need to manually output the initialization scripts, which the not seems to be not done in the template. Instead you should try to substitute the Deferred for ToClientTemplate and see if this makes any difference.

    Similar to the following:

    @(Html.Kendo().DatePickerFor(m => m.USReleaseDate).HtmlAttributes(new { @class = "form-control", placeholder = "US Release Date" }).ToClientTemplate())
