Object to the column.

I have this grid:

<ej-grid id="FlatGrid" allow-sorting="true" allow-paging="true" show-summary="true">
                <e-datamanager json="ViewBag.dataSource" offline="true" cross-domain="true"></e-datamanager>
                <e-toolbar-settings show-toolbar="true" toolbar-items=@(new List<string>() {"excelExport","wordExport","pdfExport" })>


                    <e-column field="Name" header-text="Name" width="75"></e-column>
                    <e-column field="Cities" header-text="Cities" width="75"></e-column>

The problem is that every object has Cities as another object with city names. How can I display all of them for current user in the column cell Cities ?

I am following the answer from here:


, but trying to implement it for Core MVC:

<script type="text/x-jsrender" id="InterestsTemplate">



            <ej-grid id="FlatGrid" datasource="ViewBag.DataSource">


                    <e-column field="Name" header-text="Name"></e-column>

                    <e-column header-text="Cities" Template=true TemplateID="CitiesTemplate"></e-column>



Data looks like  this:

[{"name":"Name 1","cities":[{"name":"City 1"},{"name":"City2"},{"name":"City3"}]}]
or 1 row from table can have alot of cities, which I want to put to its cell.

Hi Customer, 
We have checked your issue and bound the list of strings within a colum according to the KB. But we are unable to reproduce your reported problem at our end. Please refer to the code example:- 
<ej-grid id="FlatGrid" allow-paging="true" >  
    <e-datamanager url="/Home/DataSource" adaptor="UrlAdaptor"/>  
        <e-column field="ID" header-text=ID" is-primary-key="true"width="75"></e-column>  
        <e-column field="FirstName " header-text="First Name"></e-column>  
             <e-column field="LastName " header-text="Last Name"></e-column> 
        <e-column field="Address " header-text="Address" template="true" template-id="#template" ></e-column> 
     <script type="text/x-jsrender" id ="template"> 
         {{for Addresses}} 
            <span>{{>Address2}}</span><br /> 
         List<Person> Persons = new List<Person>(); 
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) 
        private void BindDataSource() 
            List<Address> adrs1 = new List<Address>(); 
            adrs1.Add(new Address() { Address1 = "No: 417", Address2 = "1st street", City = "Aurora", Country = "Arapahoe", Zip = "80010" }); 
            . . . 
            List<Address> adrs2 = new List<Address>(); 
            adrs2.Add(new Address() { Address1 = "No: 378", Address2 = "3rd cross street", City = "Austin", Country = "Travis", Zip = "78701" }); 
            .  .  . 
            List<Address> adrs3 = new List<Address>(); 
            adrs3.Add(new Address() { Address1 = "No: 195", Address2 = "7th golden street", City = "Sandy", Country = "Salt Lake", Zip = "84070" }); 
            Persons.Add(new Person() { ID = 1001, FirstName = "John", LastName = "Beckett", Addresses = adrs1 }); 
            Persons.Add(new Person() { ID = 1002, FirstName = "Ben", LastName = "Smith", Addresses = adrs2 }); 
            Persons.Add(new Person() { ID = 1003, FirstName = "Andrew", LastName = "Fuller", Addresses = adrs3 }); 
            this.Grid.DataSource = Persons; 
        public class Person 
            public Person() 
            public Person(int id, string firstName, string lastName, List<Address> address) 
                this.ID = id; 
                this.FirstName = firstName; 
                this.LastName = lastName; 
                this.Addresses = address; 
            public int ID { get; set; } 
            public string FirstName { get; set; } 
            public string LastName { get; set; } 
            public List<Address> Addresses { get; set; } 
        public class Address 
            public string Address1 { get; set; } 
            public string Address2 { get; set; } 
            public string City { get; set; } 
            public string Country { get; set; } 
            public string Zip { get; set; }
