One of my project page contains Kendo hierarchy grid. The inner grid contain 3 combo boxes

When I select an item form 3rd combo box. A new grid row will insert below the existing row.

The problem is after adding the new row the selected values of the first 3 combo boxes are resetting..

Inner Grid Code

            .Columns(columns =>
                columns.Bound(o => o.Area).ClientTemplate("<input id='areaCombo_#= UserId #' >").Width("25%");
                columns.Bound(o => o.Application).ClientTemplate("<input id='applicationCombo_#= UserId #'>").Width("25%");
                columns.Bound(o => o.UserLevel).ClientTemplate("<input id='userLevelCombo_#= UserId #'>").Width("25%");
            .Events(events => events.DataBound("dataBound"))
            .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
                        .Read(read => read.Action("BindHierarchy", "Security"))

function dataBound() {


        var dataSourceArea = new{
            transport: {
                read: {
                    url: "GetAreaListForComboBox"

        $.each($("[id^=userLevelCombo_]"), function () {
            element = this;
                dataSource: dataSourceUserLevel,
                dataTextField: "Value",
                dataValueField: "Key",
                filter: "contains",
                placeholder: "---Select---",
                change: function (e) {


    function CreateNewGridRow() {
        var grid = $("#SubGridSecuritySection").data("kendoGrid");
        if (grid) {
            var dataSource = grid.dataSource;
            var total =;
            dataSource.insert(total, {});

How to fix this issue..?
