    I'm trying to use a grid column template to add a third-party widget to the cells of that column. So far, my best idea has been to template the column like so:

    columns: [{
    field: 'SKUId',
    width: 150,
    title: 'SKU',
    template: '<div id="skulookup_#= promotionskuId #" onreadystatechange="PromotionalSKUs.setupSKULookup(this)" />'

    The PromotionalSKUs.setupSKULookup method creates the widget like so:

    function setupSKULookup(element) {
        if (element.readyState == "complete")

    However. This method never gets called. Is there some way for me to call a method to initialize my widget when the template is converted to HTML and added to the DOM?

    Hello Stephen,

    In order to achieve similar to the described functionality, you may use Grid's dataBound event to find all of the elements over which the new widget should be instantiated. For example:
