    Hello, I hope someone can help me out with this problem I am struggling with.

    I am attempting to use a multi select as an editor for a column within my grid. This column itself is actually an object which I use a template to display the text content within the grid:

    "accountReps": {
                "primary": [{
                    "userId": 1234,
                    "name": "Person name"
                "secondary": []


    These properties are also both set as editable in the schema model

    "accountReps.primary": {
        "type": "object",
        "editable": true,
        "nullable": false,
        "validation": {
            "required": false
    "accountReps.secondary": {
        "type": "object",
        "editable": true,
        "nullable": false,
        "validation": {
            "required": false


    When its comes to the editor I can display the editor and populate the initial values fine, but when persisting back to the grid the data is not to be mapping to my object correctly. The code I am using for the editor is:


    $('<select name="' + options.field + '"/>')
            placeholder: "Select",
            autoBind: false,
            dataTextField: "Name",
            dataValueField: "Id",
            valuePrimitive: true,
            dataSource: ds,
            change: function(e) {
            select: function(e) {
            dataBound: function () {
                var fieldValues = options.model.get(options.field).map(function (item) {
                    return item.userId.toString();


    I believe its just setting the selected ids as the value for my column. I'm hoping for an event I can use to set the value correctly or a way to map the object.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Hello John,

    Thank you for the provided information.

    Based on it I can assume that after the editor is closed the selected values are not correctly shown in the Grid?

    If this is correct, I can suggest using a function for the template and check the actual value which is received. Then the modification can be made in the template function in order to show the values.

    Also, I can suggest checking our example of the Grid with MultiSelect editor which demonstrates the required steps to achieve the desired result:

    If the issue still occurs, please provide a runnable example or the used template and I will gladly assist further.
