Hi,

I'm facing an issue with popup of a Kendo MVC grid.

The Popup renders a custom "EditData.cshtml" view which is under the following folder structure--> Views/My/EditorTemplates/EditData.cshtml

But if I move the EditorTemplates folder to another folder say "controls" (eg; Views/My/Controls/EditorTemplates/EditData.cshtml), the EditData.cshtml template view is not found by the pop-up and renders the default popup.

The "EditData.cshtml" is also found if I move the Editortemplates folder to the Shared folder (Shared/EditorTemplates/EditData.cshtml).

I want to place the EditorTemplates under the Controls folder in this structure --> Views/My/Controls/EditorTemplates/EditData.cshtml

Any help would be highly appreciated:

Below is the sample Grid :

   @(Html.Kendo().Grid<MyViewModel>()
        .Name("aliasGrid")      
        .Columns(columns =>
        {
        columns.Bound(c => c.AccountNumber).Title("Account No").Width(30);
        columns.Bound(c => c.Identifier).Title("Identifier").Width(40);
        columns.Bound(c => c.Name).Title("Alias Name");
        columns.Bound(c => c.Status.DisplayName).Title("Status/Reason");
        columns.Template(@<text></text>).ClientTemplate(@"<a class='k-grid-edit' ><u>Edit</u></a>").Title("Action");

        })       
        .Editable(x => x.Mode(GridEditMode.PopUp).TemplateName("EditData").Window(y=>y.Animation(false)))  //rendering a view from the EditorTemplates folder          
        .Groupable()
        .Sortable()
        .Filterable()
        .Pageable(pageable => pageable
        .Refresh(true)
        .PageSizes(true)
        .ButtonCount(5))       
        .Events(e => e.Edit("CheckAccess"))        
        .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
            .Ajax()           
            .Read(read => read.Action("GetData", "My").Data("GetMemberNo")) 
            .Update(update => update.Action("UpdateData", "My"))
            .PageSize(10)
            .Model(model => model.Id(p => p.ID))
            )            
        )

Seems like the Popup is going by the MVC folder naming conventions.. It's looking for Views/<ControllerName>/EditorTemplates/<ViewName>.cshtml

Is there a way to change this behaviour of kendo grid pop-up?

Hi Jithu,

When you specify custom editors they must be placed in the EditorTemplates folder. This is the convention used in MVC and it is also used with the Kendo components. 

For more information on the matter please refer to the following stackoverflow thread:
