I'm trying to write a declaration of a details grid as a ClientTemplate using an MVC wrapper with a ToClientTemplate() call. Within this grid I'm need to write another client template for a column with a conditional data binding expression.

I'm getting invalid template error:

looks like the problem is the conditional expression in the if statement:

    if(FirstName == \u0027John\u0027)

the single quote is encoded. What do I have to do to prevent that? Is there a way to escape single quote?

Here is sample code:

@(
    Html.Kendo().Grid<Person>().Name("parentGrid")
    .Columns(col =>
    {
        col.Bound(per => per.FirstName);
        col.Bound(per => per.LastName);
        col.Bound(per => per.ModifiedDate);
    })
    .DataSource(ds => ds.Ajax().Read("GetPeople", "DetailGrid"))
    .ClientDetailTemplateId("tmpl")
)
 
<script id="tmpl" type="text/x-kendo-template">
@(
    Html.Kendo().Grid<EmailAddress>().Name("detail_#=BusinessEntityID#")
     .Columns(col =>
     {
         col.Bound(e => e.EmailAddress1)
         .ClientTemplate("# if(FirstName == 'John') { # <span>Johns are great!</span> # } else { # <span>\\#=EmailAddress1\\#</span> # } #");
     })
     .ToClientTemplate()
)
</script>

Forgot to mention that I want the conditional template binding expression to be evaluated in the context for parent data item. FirstName is a property of a person, not an email address.

Also there should be a data source declaration in the detail grid:

.DataSource(ds => ds.Ajax().Read("GetEmails", "DetailGrid", new { id = "#=BusinessEntityID#" }))

Hello Nikita,

For complex templates we highly recommend using a JavaScript function where you could pass the value that will be evaluated and return the html in the function directly:
.ClientTemplate("#=myCondtion(fieldName)#")
...
 
function myCondtion(value){
  if(...){
    return value;
  }
  else{
    return value + "test";
  }
}

Please give this a try and let me now if the issue is resolved.

As for the templates syntax, you could refer to the following help topic:
