Grid custom template not rendering asp net core tag helpers

Hi there,

I'm trying to use a custom template for a grid column which contains ASP.NET Core tag helpers like this:

<e-grid-column field="Name" headerText="Name" template="#nameAnchor"/>

<script id="nameAnchor" type="text/template">
        <a asp-page="./Detail" asp-route-id="${Id}">${Name}</a>

The asp tags are not rendered to html when using type="text/template",  and the ${} tags are not rendered to html when using type="text/html".

Could you please assist?

Just to give some more context:

Rendered html when using type="text/template": <a asp-page="./Detail" asp-route-id="001">SomeName</a>
Rendered html when using type="text/html": <a rel='nofollow' href="/Detail?id=$%7BId%7D">SomeName</a>

Expected html: <a rel='nofollow' href="/Detail?id=001">SomeName</a>

Hi Customer, 

Thanks contacting Syncfusion support, 

We have checked your query and ASP.Net Core Anchor Tag Helper cannot use template literals like ${Id}. So we have achieved your requirement  by using html Anchor tag instead of asp Achor tag. Please refer the below code example and sample for more information. 


<ejs-grid id="Grid" dataSource=" ViewBag.DataSource" allowPaging="true">     
        <e-grid-column field="OrderID" width="110" isPrimaryKey=true></e-grid-column> 
        <e-grid-column field="CustomerID" headerText="CustomerID" width="110" template="#nameAnchor"></e-grid-column> 
    .   .    .    . 
<script id="nameAnchor" type="text/x-template"> 
        <a rel='nofollow' href="/Detail?id=${EmployeeID}" class='btn btn-primary'>${CustomerID}</a> 

Please get back to us, if you need further assistance.
