I tried configuring select 2 like this WITHOUT jqgrid and it works fine:
Then I tried configuring a column as select2 in the editform of jqgrid using datainit and dataevent.
It works, but it does not send back the additional data, just id and text
Why does it work outside of jqgrid and it does not work inside jqgrid?
I need to send the additional data back there too.
