    So I'm using 2016.1.412 Telerik controls.  MVC Grid UI.


    I've followed this (http://www.telerik.com/support/code-library/checkbox-column-and-incell-editing) in order to get one of my boolean? columns to only show a checkbox and allow single click changes.  It works if I very carefully click on the check box.  If I click (within the cell) but next to the check box I get the drop list with the values "true, false, not set".  How do I get rid of the drop list?


    1.columns.Bound(p => p.SendTo).Template(@<text></text>).ClientTemplate("<input type='checkbox' #= SendTo ? checked='checked':'' # class='sendtochkbx'/>")
    2.  .Title(GridColumns.SendToPorzio)
    3.  .Filterable(true)
    4.  .HtmlAttributes(new { style = "text-align: center;" })
    5.  .Sortable(false)
    6.  .Width(150)
    7.  .Locked(true)
    8.  .HeaderTemplate("Send To Porzio <input type='checkbox' id='masterCheckBox' onclick='checkAll(this)'/>   ");

    2.    '.sendtochkbx',
    3.    function () {
    4.        var checked = $(this).is(':checked');
    5.        var dataItem = grid.dataItem($(this).closest('tr'));  //grid is defined earlier in code block
    6.        dataItem.set('SendTo', checked);
    7.    });

    Hi Doug,

    When you use ClientTemplate you need to ensure that you escape the hash symbols. Check out the following article for additional information on using templates.

    Also, make sure that the SendTo field is defined as boolean in the Model. By default the boolean fields will have checkbox editors rendered.
