Hello again,
how can i select a grid row,based on the value or the text of a dropdownlist?

first of all,i looked over the demo api on kendo site, and the code
    ViewBag.Title = "GridApi";

<div id="grid"></div>
        columns: [
    { field: "name" },
    { field: "age" }
        dataSource: [
    { name: "Jane Doe", age: 30 },
    { name: "John Doe", age: 33 },
    var grid = $("#grid").data("kendoGrid");
    var row = grid.tbody.find("tr:eq(0)"); OR variant 2: var rowIndex=1;row = grid.tbody.find(">tr:not(.k-grouping-row)").eq(rowIndex);
    var data = grid.dataItem(row);;
    console.log(; // displays "Jane Doe"

i attached a picture with the error in firebug.

Hi Daniel,

The current sample code is missing the selectable option of the Grid, which is present in the example from the API docs. Regarding the current scenario, could you please elaborate a bit more and specify what exactly is the desired behavior? As a general advice, I would suggest you to bind to the select or change event of the DropDown and use the information in the event handler to select the appropriate row in the Grid.

Please let me know if this was the information that you were looking for.
