        Is it possible to create the custom popup editor dynamically?  I have a grid merging different objects would like like to change popup editor dynamically.  Usually, I used this form and it works fine:

    editable: {
        mode: "popup",
        template: kendo.template($("#allRequestEditGridTemplate").html()),

    However, I would like use something like this and it does not work.  I got correct template shown, but no update button....

    edit: function (e) {
       var editWindow ="kendoWindow");
        if(e.model.CategoryType == 1 /*Document*/)
        else if(e.model.CategoryType == 2 /*Piping*/)


    Thank you for your help

    Hello Steve,

    Indeed this approach can cause some unexpected behavior. At this point (when edit event is fired) the content of the window already contains the update and cancel button and they are removed once you set new content. 

    Maybe a possible solution in this case is to contain both of the templates and hide one of them in the edit event.
