Telerik MVC Grid: Put a button in a column


What im trying to do is have an edit button that instead of opening the line for editing, it forwards you to a page where you can edit. Is this possible? I tried something with the client template, but the grid render is ignoring it completely.

Yes, you can place a component into a grid column. Heres an example of how I bound the Id column with an Action link to the edit action passing in the Id.

I've removed the other columns from the template for clarity.

            .DataKeys(keys => { keys.Add(x => x.Id); })
            .Columns(columns =>
                columns.Bound(x => x.Id).Title("").Format(Html.ActionLink("edit", "Edit", new { id = "{0}" }).ToHtmlString()).Encoded(false).Width(60);
