How to change the dropdown data source while editing?

We can change the Dropdown data source while editing the Grid instead of default data source. This can be achieved by using actionComplete event in Grid. The following code example demonstrates how to change the dropdown data source while editing.

This gets me 90% of the way there but then you use "$("#GridEmployeeID")".  Where does GridEmployeeID come from?  Is this something that Syncfusion creates?  If so then how are we supposed to know what the drop-down-list will be named?

Hi William,

 "$("#GridEmployeeID")". is the id dropdown element which is the combination of Grid id and column field name.
