    I would like to show a clickable URL within a Kendo Grid that opens a bootstrap modal. Unfortunately, when the user clicks on this link, the browser navigates to a new page to show the results.

    The code below is supposed to open a partial view that would load the proper data for the specified LotId.

    Any help would be greatly welcomed.


          .Columns(columns =>
            columns.Bound(x => x.LotName).ClientTemplate(@Html.ActionLink("#=LotName#", "ShowLotModal", "Lot", new { id = "#=LotId#" }, null));


    // Etc...

    The Bootstrap modal should be opened with a JavaScript click handler, attached to the ActionLink. Currently, it appears that such a handler is not used. The Grid's dataBound event can be used to attach the event handler, unless you prefer an "onclick" attribute.

    Since the discussed development task is not directly related to Kendo UI, my recommendation is to achieve the desired behavior with an ActionLink outside the Grid, and then integrate the functionality with the Grid. Let me know if you have any problems with the last step.
