Hi, I have a grid with 9 columns, 3 of them with .visible(false). I need that those 3 columns, shows up in the edit dialog (dialog mode, not dialog template mode).

Thanks for your help.

Kind regards,

Juan J.

Hi Juan, 

Greetings from Syncfusion. 

Based on your query we found that you want to add/edit the invisible columns in Grid without using the dialog template edit in Grid. we can achieve your requirement using the actionBegin event of Grid. 

Refer the below code example. 


    )ViewBag.data).Columns(col => 
    col.Field("OrderID").HeaderText("Order ID").IsPrimaryKey(true).Width("120").TextAlign(Syncfusion.EJ2.Grids.TextAlign.Right).Add(); 
    col.Field("CustomerID").HeaderText("Customer Name").Width("150").Add(); 
    col.Field("EmployeeID").HeaderText("Employee ID").Visible(false).Width("90").Add(); 
    }).AllowPaging().PageSettings(page => page.PageCount(2)).EditSettings(edit => { edit.AllowAdding(true).AllowEditing(true).AllowDeleting(true).Mode(Syncfusion.EJ2.Grids.EditMode.Dialog); }).Toolbar(new List<string>() { "Add", "Edit", "Delete", "Update", "Cancel" }).Render()) 
<script id="dialogtemplate" type="text/template"> 
    <div id="dialogTemp"> 
<script type="text/javascript"> 
    function actionBegin(args) { 
        if (args.requestType === "beginEdit" || args.requestType === "add") { 
            this.columns[2].visible = true; // Enable the visibility for “EmployeeID” column 
        else if (args.requestType === "save") { 
            this.columns[2].visible = false; // Disable the visibility for “EmployeeID” column 

Refer the help documentation.
