Perspective Table Drop Down List Edit

I’ve got a perspective table and I’m able to embed a dropdown that populates properly, and I’ve set the render option for the column to view. The underlying data for that column is an integer for the ID of the option that has been selected.

The issue comes in when you double click the row to edit the data in the row and then click the drop down list, the underlying data is being edited not the drop down list.

How do I get the edit to be the dropdown list and not the actual data?
