I have a grid with a edit to a dialog template. 
On that dialog template i want some dropdown fields getting data from database.
I want to show the data from DB and the possibility to choose another value from the dropdownlist.  
I found some examples but This is about ej1 Instructions,How can i upgrade it to ej2?

I've a grid defined as follow:

<ejs-grid id="Grid" allowPaging="true" allowSorting="true" allowExcelExport="true" toolbarClick="toolbarClick" toolbar="@(new List<string>() {"Add", "Edit", "Delete", "Search", "ExcelExport"})" actionBegin="actionBegin" actionComplete="actionComplete">
    <e-data-manager url="/api/CountryListApi/CountryList" adaptor="WebApiAdaptor" crossdomain="true"></e-data-manager>
    <e-grid-editSettings allowAdding="true" allowDeleting="true" showDeleteConfirmDialog="true" allowEditing="true" mode="Dialog" template='#dialogtemplate' newRowPosition="Bottom"></e-grid-editSettings>
        <e-grid-column field="Country" headerText="Country" width="120" editType="dropdownedit"></e-grid-column>
        <e-grid-column field="City" headerText="City" width="120" allowSorting="false"></e-grid-column>

<script id='dialogtemplate' type="text/x-template">
        <div id="tab0" class='tab'>
            <div class="form-row">
                <div class="form-group col-md-12">
                    <div class="e-float-input e-control-wrapper">
                        <input id="Country" required name="Country" type="text" value="${if(isAdd)} '' ${else} ${Country} ${/if}" />
                        <span class="e-float-line"></span>
                        <label class="e-float-text e-label-top" for="Country">Country</label>

  function actionBegin(args) {

        var dataManagerCountry =
        url: "/api/CountryList",
        adaptor: new ej.UrlAdaptor()

        if (args.requestType === 'add' ||args.requestType === 'beginEdit') {
                dataSource: dataManagerCountry,
                fields: { text: "City", value: "Country" },

        public IActionResult CountryDropDownList()
             var list =
             from rg in _unitOfWork.GetRepository<Country>().Get()
             join rgr in _unitOfWork.GetRepository<City>().Get() on rg.Country equals rgr.Country
             select new CountryViewModel
                 Country = rgr.Country,
                 City = rgr.Country.ToString() + " " + rgr.City

            return list;
