    Is there way to hook the Edit button in the row to navigate to another template?  I would like to navigate to another template that has a hierarchical grid that would display relevant data.  In this case the initial grid shows a listing of tests. 

    When the user clicks the "edit" button in the grid I want to navigate to another page representing the questions and answers for the selected test in a hierarchical grid.  So how could the second page's Grid pass the testId from the action (URL) to the Read() function specified in the grid?

    Hi Reid,

    The desired functionality to navigate from the Kendo UI Grid to another page can be achieved with the help of a custom command button.

    Both of the links below demonstrate а grid with custom command buttons which when clicked obtain the relevant dataItem:

    API Reference:

    Once you have the dataItem, you may use standard JavaScript technique to redirect to the desired URL, e.g:

    window.location = "url/" +;

    Once on the second page, to pass an additional parameter to the Kendo UI Grid with hierarchy, you may configure its data source with the help of the transport read data option:
