Showing no data text inside Grid when there's no data
Ponder? its a basic usability Feature, Kendoui is supposed to be all about usability, surely this is Ponder? There should be a standard (easy/inbuilt) way to show that a grid data source has no records because that is the default opposite to a populated data grid. at the very least if data is empty then show "nothing" all mine does is leave the spinning ajax wheel running forever, so end users does not know, this means i have to write extra code just to implement this, so please consider this "feature"

function norecordscheck(e) {

var grid = $("#OrderGrid").data("kendoGrid");

var gridHasData = > 0;

if (!gridHasData ) { 
grid.content.find('div').each(function () { 
grid.content.append('<div class="grid-no-data"><h1>No Data to Display</h1></div>'); 
.Events(events => { events.Error("error_handler"); events.Change("norecordscheck"); })

Loi,  it doesn't appear your workaround works with Ajax binding, at least with regards to binding to the DataBound event of the grid.

While waiting for this feature to be implemented, here the workaround I wrote. Attach the following function to the grid's DataBound event.

function gridNoDataMsgDisplay(e){
        var grid = e.sender;
        var gridHasData = > 0;
        var hasPager = false; //hasPager = grid.pager != undefined; 
        if (!gridHasData && !hasPager) {
            var columnCount = $(grid.thead.get(0)).children("tr").first().children("th").length;
		        kendo.format("<tr class='custom-no-data-row'><td span='{0}'>No data to display.</td></tr>", columnCount)

Try this as a workaround. Unfortunately this targets a specific Grid. If you're using the MVC Extensions, the DataBound event sends more information and you can get a reference to the grid that called the even (hence have a generic even handler callback for all your grids). I can give you my original function that I use with my MVC extensions.

Currently, a grid must use pager to see this "No items to display" message when there's no data. The issue is if a grid does not need nor have pager enabled would not see this no data text indicator.

Please consider showing the "No items to display" message INSIDE the grid, and the ability to set the text of this 'no data' string. This feature is very helpful in grids that display search results.
