Hi Rossland,
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.
We can reproduce the mentioned issue in our sample with the attached code example. In your code example the curly brackets were not properly closed in the commands column. 
 Find the code example: 
{
      type: "open",
      buttonOptions: {
             text: "Open",
             width: "100",
             click: "onOpenClick"
    },

Find the modified code example: 
 
{
      type: "open",
       buttonOptions: {
            text: "Open",
            width: "100",
            click: "onOpenClick"
         }
  },
 
Regards,
Prasanna Kumar N.S.V

Thank you. I got it to work now. Is there a way to render one of the command buttons as a dropdown button? Alternative i could show a pop-up on click, but i can't find a popup widget in JS Essential. Basically what a need is a multiple choice on a commnd button.

Hi Rossland, 

Query : “Is there a way to render one of the command buttons as a dropdown button?” 

It is not possible to render one of the command buttons as a dropdown button. To achieve your requirement we suggest you to use columnTemplate feature of ejGrid. In columnTemplate HTML templates can be specified in the template property of the particular column as a string (HTML element) or ID of the template’s HTML element. 

Find the code example and sample:  


<body> 
    
    <div id="Grid"></div> 
    <ul id="U1"> 
        <li><span>User</span></li> 
        <li><span>Guest</span></li> 
        <li><span>Admin</span></li> 
    </ul> 
             
 <script type="text/javascript"> 
    $(function () { 
        $("#Grid").ejGrid({ 
            // the datasource "window.gridData" is referred from jsondata.min.js 
            dataSource: window.gridData, 
            allowPaging: true, 
            templateRefresh : function (args) {              
                $($(args.cell).children()[0]).ejSplitButton({ click: "btnClick2", targetID: "U1" , width: "80px", height: "30px"}); 
                $($(args.cell).children()[1]).ejButton({ click: "btnClick1" }); 
            }, 
            columns: [ 
                     ---------------------------------- 
                     { headerText: "Actions", template: '<button id="button13">Open</button><button id="button14">Power</button>', width: 150 } 
            ] 
        }); 
    }); 
 </script> 


Refer to the Help document for the columnTemplate.
