jQuery Grid ForeignKey Column Binding

Loading Demo...

Also available for:



The Kendo UI for jQuery Grid supports foreignKey columns. ForeignKey columns are helpful when you need to bind the column to an ID field while displaying a text value instead. When the Grid is editable, the foreignKey column will automatically render a DropDownList component as an editor.

This demo showcases how to bind the foreignKey column to a remote service. The remote service must return an array of objects with two fields—value and text. These fields hold the value that will be set to the underlying dataItem and the value that will be displayed in the cell respectively.

This Grid example is part of a unique collection of hundreds of jQuery demos, with which you can see all Kendo UI for jQuery components and their features in action. View the source code of the demos from the library or directly adapt, and edit them and their theme appearance in Kendo UI for jQuery Dojo or ThemeBuilder.
