The standard functionality offered by the Telerik MVC Grid forces you to have to use the same ViewModel class that you use for the list of items in the grid.  However, in reality there is often the requirement to use a separate Model because the grid shows a scaled down, summarised view of your data.  Is there a way, when using InForm editing, to specify a the more detailed ViewModel for editing?

This will be extremely helpful if we can customise the standard behaviour in this way.

Hello Ozzy Knox,

 This is not supported. The grid can edit only the model specified during databinding. However I am not sure why you need this. Can't you just create columns for the desired properties?
