EditorProvider in row edit dialog

I'm trying to use a custom editor provider in a grid's row edit dialog. The editor should be a numeric input wrapped in a div. I want an anchor tag after the input that opens a dialog. 

My problems are:

  • The numeric input is created, but it is missing styling (borders) because the two wrapper divs (with classes 'ui-igedit-container' and 'ui-igeditor-input-container ui-corner-all') aren't created like they are for the other editors not using a custom editor provider.
  • The 'required' validation attributes ( ui-igvalidator-target) isn't being added to the input. I assume this means that the required setting isn't being applied.I was hoping the call the super create editor would take care of this.

Here's the code for the column setting:

new ColumnUpdatingSetting()
            ColumnKey = "OldProductId",
            EditorType = ColumnEditorType.Numeric,
            Required = true,
            NumericEditorOptions = new NumericEditorModel
                DataMode = NumericEditorDataMode.Int,
                GroupSeparator = "",
            EditorProvider = "new $.ig.previousIpEditor()"

And the editor provider:

window.$.ig.previousIpEditor = $.ig.previousIpEditor || $.ig.EditorProvider.extend({
    createEditor: createEditor,
    keydown: keydown,
    setSize: setSize,
    attachErrorEvents: (errorShowing, errorShown, errorHidden) => { },
    getValue: function () {
        return this.input.val();
    setValue: function (val) {
    destroy: () => this.editor.remove()

function createEditor(callbacks, key, editorOptions, tabIndex, format, element) {
    const div = $('<div></div>');

    const input = $('<input data-editor-for-oldproductid />');

    this._super(callbacks, key, editorOptions, tabIndex, format, input);

    this.input = input;

    const a = $('<a>Select</a>');
    a.on('click', createDialog);

    return element;

    After investigating this further, I have determined that the wrapper divs and the css classes are not applied because another element is appended to the input.

    What I could suggest is using the default numeric editor as editor provider and wrapping the editor and the ‘a’ tag inside a div by using a dialog template. This could be achieved as follows:

       <div style="float: left; width:50%; margin-left: 15px; margin-top: 15px;" id="templateContainer">

                <strong style="margin-left: 5px">${Name}</strong><br /><br />

                <table id="dialogTmpTable" style="width: 50%;">

                    . . .





                            <div data-editor-for-age></div>

                            <a onclick="clickA()">Select</a>







    . . .

    features: [


             columnSettings: [


                    columnKey: "Age",

                    editorType: "numeric",

                    required: true

             } ],

             editMode: "dialog",

             name: "Updating",

             rowEditDialogOptions: {

                  dialogTemplateSelector: "#dialogTemplate",


     } ],

    More information regarding configuring the row edit dialog could be found in the following topic of our documentation.

    Below I am attaching a sample, demonstrating the described behavior. Please test it on your side and let me know if you need any further information regarding this matter.
