DropDownDataSource not available

Hi, I am trying to reproduce a smaple using the Grid, following these code:




       .Column(column =>


          column.Add(p => p.OrderID).HeaderText("Order ID");

          column.Add(p => p.EmployeeID).HeaderText("Employee ID");

          column.Add(p => p.CustomerID).HeaderText("Customer ID")

                .CellEditType(CellEditType.DropdownEdit)                           .DropDownDataSource

but when I write DropDownDataSource nothing happens, I mean no intelissence for this, Am i forgetting to reference a class on using section, what namespace is for this option.

Hope you can help me , thanks

Hi Joel,


Thank you for using Syncfusion products.


# We don’t need to add any specific dll to use DropDownDataSource Property. The following are the basic assemblies need to be referenced in your application in order to use Essential Grid for ASP.NET MVC.
















# If you are using Razor application , then assemblies should be added in  Views/Web.config file. Please refer to the following code snippets:



    . . .. . 
        <add namespace="Syncfusion.Mvc.Shared"/>
        <add namespace="Syncfusion.Mvc.Grid"/>
. . . .


# We have included the DropDownDataSource feature support for Grid [ASP.Net MVC] control in our Essential Studio Volume 1 release , 2013(Version -
