    We have an MVC web app and have a kendo grid with batch editing.  One of the columns is a dropdownlist. (using columns.ForeignKey())

    It works perfectly in FireFox.  However, it doesn't work at all in Chrome, and you have to double click in Internet Explorer (shows a textbox on first click, then ddl after second click).

    To demonstrate the behavior, I created a new telerik MVC project with a grid.  I noticed that the template uses jQuery version 1.10.2.  Our project is using jQuery version 3.1.1.  So I tried switching our project to use 1.10.2 -- and the grid dropdownlist starting working fine in all browsers.

    1. Does kendo require you to use a specific (old) version of jQuery?

    2. Any suggestions?  I hate switching the jQuery version and regression testing the entire app...

    * I tried to reproduce in a simple application, but could not.  I'm not sure what it is about our grid that causes the issue - but I do know when I toggle between the 2 versions of jQuery, it works with 1.10.2, and not with 3.1.1.

    Hello Justin,

    In general, from version 2016.3.1118 (R3 2016 SP2) Kendo UI is officially supporting jQuery 3 and the application should work as expected without changing the versions:

    If the application is using a version of Kendo UI from 2016.3.1118 or upper, and the application is reproducing this error. We will need a runnable example, as the issue sound specific to a jQuery version and to a specific browser.

    Also, I can suggest checking our demo, to check if all of the requirements are met:

    I do understand that it may be hard to reproduce on an isolated example, but it is required in order to transfer it to the developers' team for investigation.

    Progress Telerik
