Spreadsheet: Render cell using custom html
It would be great if you could put images to cells using html. E.g.: <img src="..."> would result in an image in the cell.

Hello, William,

Could you please state your question in a new support ticket/forum thread as a more appropriate place to discuss the matter? There you can also share further details on the issue you are experiencing (preferably in a Dojo example) and steps on how to reproduce it. We will then be able to provide more information on the matter.

Thank you for the understanding!

Hey everyone!

With R3 2020 we introduced the ability for a range of cells to allow for their value to be evaluated as HTML, letting a cell or range of cells use HTML to display content. Please refer to this specific Spreadsheet API reference to see a sample of how to configure cells to accept HTML and to play around with the behavior.

Yes please enable custom html. I would like to have a cell that has an element instantiated with Kendo ContextMenu that will provide additional functionality. Thank you.

I agree with allowing templates like Kendo Grid.  That would take care of some of the other suggestions (Include Images, Include buttons, Include checkboxes).

Yes, and cell or column template should be provided like kendo grid. Template for inserting button in all the cells or image are general scenarios we required.

Yes! With most other HTML grids, you can supply an HTML template for a cell... Lets add this to the Spreadsheet control...

spreadsheet cell renders each cell as text node. It should have an option to render it as html node based on some configuration.
