Is it possible to add any third party dropdown (e.g - ng-select) control inside the grid?

Thanks for sharing the details. 

By default, we have provided editTemplate option to use custom component in Grid edit form. Please refer the below help documentation for more information. 

We also provided dropdown edit(with syncfusion dropdownlist) option for grid, please refer the below help documentation for more information about grid edit types.

Thanks for your support,

I am able to render controls inside grid using template but properties binding is not working.
Here is my sample code

   <e-column field='OrderDate' headerText='Section'  width=150>
            <ng-template #editTemplate let-data>
                <ng-select [items]="recipeDropDown" bindLabel="displayvalue" bindValue="savedvalue"
                    placeholder="Select Section">

Hi Akbar, 

Thanks for your update. 

As per the provided information, we have created a sample and render the ng-select component in Grid using editTemplate property  and there is a positioning problem in ng-select component. 

Please refer the attachment for more information the dropdown panel are not shown properly in grid edit form. 


Could you please share is there any specific reason for using ng-select ? if not then we suggest you to use the syncfusion dropDownList component instead of ng-select to resolve the problem. 

Please refer the below help documentation for more information about dropdown component and grid edit types.
