    Does the Kendo Spreadsheet have the functionality to have a drop down list in a row like Excel?

    Hi Judd,

    Yes, the Kendo Spreadsheet offers such functionality. Here you will find the Custom cell editors demo, where a drop-down is configured for the values in the B1 cell. Note, that Cell editor is specified using the cell validation:
    cells: [
       { value: "Select item:", bold: true },
       { background: "#fef0cd",
         validation: {
             dataType: "list",
             showButton: true,
             comparerType: "list",
             from: '{ "Foo item 1", "Bar item 2", "Baz item 3" }',
             allowNulls: true,
             type: "reject"

    Keep in mind, that the Cell editor could be configured per cell, as in the above example, or per range of cells, using the Spreadsheet.Range.validation(method.
