[Grid] Add an option to show the editor row at the end of the grid.

Reproduction

We got the feedback that in some scenarios it might be more intuitive to open the editor row below the last row since the user expects to "append" new rows at the end.

Hi Mark,

Thank you for submitting this feature request. However, I will close it in favour of an older one that we are already tracking so that the vote is not spread between identical or very similar items:

https://feedback.telerik.com/kendo-angular-ui/1360584-kendo-ui-grid-inline-insert-new-row-at-a-specific-position-on-the-grid

Meanwhile the only relatively straightforward workaround I can suggest is to use a custom implementation, based on external form editing, as demonstrated in the following section of our documentation:

http://www.telerik.com/kendo-angular-ui/components/grid/editing/external-editing/

... and apply some custom logic when saving the data that will ensure it is placed in the desired spot in the returned collection the Grid is bound to, e.g.:

... or a similar approach but with inline editing:

Please mind that the example is designed only to show a sample approach for adding the new item edit form at the bottom of the Grid, and is not fully functional as further considerations and the respective custom logic implementation should be added based on the desired behavior when the "Cancel" button is pressed or where the newly added item should appear in the Grid.
