    When I create a hyperlink in the nested grid, it is using the parent unique id over the child unique id.  This results in an incorrect URL.

    Below is the code for the template kendo grid.

    <script id="Load_PCSO" type="text/kendo-templ">
        <h3>Power Cost Savings</h3>
              .Columns(columns =>
                      columns.Bound(p => p.Id).Width("50px").ClientTemplate(Html.ActionLink("#=Id#", "PowerCostSavingEdit", "Account", new {siteId = "#=SiteId#", powerCostSavingId = "#=Id#"}, null).ToString());
                      columns.Bound(p => p.Id);
                      columns.Bound(p => p.Type).Width("150px");
                      columns.Bound(p => p.FollowUpDate).Width("100px").HtmlAttributes(new {style = "text-align: center"});
                      columns.Bound(p => p.Lead).Width("150px");
                      columns.Bound(p => p.Savings).Width("100px").HtmlAttributes(new {style = "text-align: right"});
                      columns.Bound(p => p.Status).Width("100px");
                      columns.Bound(p => p.DateOfStatus).Width("100px").HtmlAttributes(new {style = "text-align: center"});
              .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource.Ajax()
                                                  .Read(read => read.Action("PSCO_Load", "AccountReview", new { siteId = "#=SiteId#"}))
              .HtmlAttributes(new { style = "width: 800px;" })

    If you look at the attached image, you will noticed that the id in the hyperlink in the first column differs from the id in the second column.  I would like the hyperlink to use the id in the second column.

    Thank You,

    Hello Arthur,

    You should escape the nested template expressions, like this:
    columns.Bound(p => p.Id)
     .ClientTemplate(Html.ActionLink("\\#=Id\\#", "PowerCostSavingEdit", "Account",
      new {siteId = "#=SiteId#", powerCostSavingId = "\\#=Id\\#"}, null)

    This ways the `Id` field from nested grid will be evaluated instead of the parent.
