    I have a column that is returning to my UI in HTML format like <a href="">google</a>. I am using a row template to populate my grid but when my column outputs, it outputs the HTML like plain text. How do I get it to render like HTML?

    <script id="rowTemplate" type="text/x-kendo-tmpl">

        columns: [
                    { field: "Phone", title: "Phone" },
                    { field: "DetailUrl", title: "Detail" }
        rowTemplate: kendo.template($("#rowTemplate").html())

    Hi Boone,

    The ${foo} syntax is encoding the HTML, try using #=foo# instead.
    You can find detailed examples of the available expressions in the template's demos.

    I hope this will help you to solve the problem.

    Hi Alexander,

    this solution worked for me.

    For the first time I used also the ${fieldName } syntax and it doesn't worked.
    In the detail row template I changed the syntax to #= fieldName # and its working.

    Thank you for your post, it helped me.

    Hi Jasmin,

    I am glad to hear that you have managed to resolve your issue.

    Kendo UI Templates use hash templates and there are three ways to render a template:

    1. Render values as HTML: #= #.
    2. Use HTML encoding to display values: #: #.
    3. Execute arbitrary JavaScript code: # if (true) { # ... non-script content here ... # } #.

    More details on the Kendo UI Templates:

    Let me know if you have additional questions.
