Conditional for Grid Columns and Buttons
It would be great to have the ability to have to conditionally set behavior for columns and buttons.

On a Grid with this:
.Columns(columns =>
  columns.Bound(b => b.IsEditable).Hidden(true);
  columns.Bound(b => b.Id);
  columns.Bound(b => b.Description).Width(200);

Today if I want to hide a button depending on a cell value I need to do it on databound event.
It would be great to have the option to set something like:
command.Edit().Display(p => p.IsEditable); 

For a column, it would be nice to have something like:
columns.Bound(b => b.Description).Width(200).Editable(p => p.IsEditable);

I've just started work with KendoGrids for like 3 days ago and after getting DB/filtering up and running,  landed on this very problem and shocked this is not an out of the box feature.

Buttons is one aspect, Check boxes, links, etc etc, anything that the data must drive.

Really a big f**ing sheet without this functionality! If I was your boss, I would not pay you any coin salary

A workaround, however "kludgey", is discussed here:

Keep in mind that simply binding to the DataBound event of the grid to hide the command button(s) is not enough - they will reappear if an edit is cancelled.  You'll have to implement the hack described by Vladimir Iliev in the forum thread.
