    Hello All,

    I set up a parent/child grid much like the Hierarchy demo.  In my case I wanted to make both grids editable (inline).  But I kept getting an invalid template error on my child grid as soon as I added the .Editable() section to it.  After some investigation and commenting/uncommenting things on the child grid and my model I discovered that the error was related to my Required validator message on the model.  My validation message was "The field '{0}' is required."  It seems like the single quotes in the validation message aren't being escaped properly when the template is created or something like that because when I changed the validation message to "The field {0} is required." everything works fine.  So I'm able to get around the issue, but I thought I'd let you know in case this is something that can be fixed in the core code.  Thanks!

    Hello Brian,

    Thank you for the feedback. I tried to reproduce the issue but to no avail. Probably this case is already troubleshooted, what version do you use?

    Here is the setup I tried :

            .Columns(columns =>
                columns.Bound(e => e.FirstName).Width(110);
                columns.Bound(e => e.LastName).Width(110);
                columns.Bound(e => e.Country).Width(110);
                columns.Bound(e => e.City).Width(110);
                columns.Bound(e => e.Title);
            .HtmlAttributes(new { style = "height:430px;" })
            .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
                .Read(read => read.Action("HierarchyBinding_Employees", "Grid"))           
            .Events(events => events.DataBound("dataBound"))
    <script id="template" type="text/kendo-tmpl">
                .Columns(columns =>
                    columns.Bound(o => o.OrderID).Width(70);
                    columns.Bound(o => o.ShipCountry).Width(110);
                    columns.Bound(o => o.ShipAddress);
                    columns.Bound(o => o.ShipName).Width(200);
                    columns.Command(cmd => cmd.Edit());
                .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
                    .Read(read => read.Action("HierarchyBinding_Orders", "Grid", new { employeeID = "#=EmployeeID#" }))
                    .Update(read => read.Action("NotImplemented", "Grid", new { employeeID = "#=EmployeeID#" }))
        function dataBound() {

    Where OrderViewModel has the following definition:

    public class OrderViewModel
            [Required(ErrorMessage = "The field '{0}' is required.Test")]
            public string ShipAddress
