Currently, Kendo Grid has a "column.values" option that accepts an array of key/value pairs.  These values are used to render human-readable text for fields that are foreign keys.  Depending on how the grid is used, this array of "available values" could be dynamic.  Currently, there is no way to update these arrays without calling "setOptions" manually with the new, correct column definitions.

To fix this, Kendo Grid should track changes to the "column.value" array (via some sort of observable or something - I'm not sure exactly how things work under the hood).  Alternatively, "column.values" could also accept a function.  This function would return the up-to-date values array (Kendo Grid would have to be smart enough to execute the function whenever necessary).

Note:  this is the same functionality that has been requested by http://kendoui-feedback.telerik.com/forums/127393-kendo-ui-feedback/suggestions/13355043-kendogrid-allow-updating-columns-values-array-nee

Please add the option for aggregates to be calculated dynamically by the datasource without requiring the grid to carry out a full refresh.

The current workaround from forums is:
save: function (e) {
  // Refresh aggregates when editing
  e.model.one("change", function () {
    gridDataSource.fetch();
  });
},
but as this triggers a refresh of the databound grid, it's current focussed cell is lost.

Example methodology for expected behaviour of solution:
1) A Config Flag on a datasource to recalculate aggregates when a value has been changed (only valid when aggregates are calculated locally) - this stops from requiring the save event.
2) Add support to the grid so that if the aggregates are updated then the grid will only refresh the footer rather than the whole grid. Alternatively the grid could always keep the currently focussed cell between refreshes (assuming the row has not changed, track by model's id field?)

Add the ability to select grid rows by providing data objects from a viewmodel instead of specifying html/css selectors.

For example:

var myGrid = $('#myGrid').data('kendoGrid');
myViewModel.Items.forEach(function(item) { myGrid.select(item); });

Currently grid takes proxy url in excel option in grid. I want proxyTarget parameter in the excel options some thing like this.

excel: {

proxyURL: "/save"

proxyTarget = "_blank"

} 
So user can open exported excel in new tab inside IPAD. This option exist in kendo.saveAs() function and export to excel function also calls the saveAs function but becuase currently this parameter is not defined in excel options so proxyTarget parameter goes undefined. Adding that option in grid will let user to open exported excel in new tab for IPAD where direct download is off.

It would be like to setting the Edit Row and Filter Row to support checkbox without ClientTemplate. It is a very very common editor type for boolean field.

Some of us use custom cell editors with multiple checkboxes (or other multiple inputs) and right now we can't use the data-bind syntax to automatically update the model when the user moves away from the cell. We also can't use the grid's "save" event because it won't fire.
Please add support for the grid column to bind to arrays, OR at least let us specify in the model or grid declaration that we want the "save" event to fire (even when you wouldn't normally do it).  This event would allow us to manually get the values of all checkboxes and update the model.

I use the Kendo controls via the ASP.Net MVC wrapper, so my examples are in that context.

The Kendo Grid can display multiple controls in a cell via Editor Templates, but my understanding from my experiments and from Kiril's reply on this forum post (http://www.telerik.com/forums/multiple-controls-in-a-column-on-single-grid-row) is that editing these controls will not work properly.

Being able to host multiple controls in a cell gives us more options in UI design.  In my case, I am using it to group related controls and prevent the grid from being very wide.

Basically, when a boolean is placed in a grid, it displays true/false.  It would be better to show it either checked/unchecked.  There is a template to be used, but it has a couple of issues:
1. you need to define it for every check box
2. It is either enabled or disabled.  Ideally, it should be disabled in display mode, and enabled in edit mode.

We need to display a custom content in the grouping cells (the empty leftmost indentation cells in data rows). Currently it is impossible since the cells are rendered "statically" (kendo.grid.js, line 337):

function groupCells(count) {
    return new Array(count + 1).join('<td class="k-group-cell">&nbsp;</td>');
}

Currently I insert my cell content AFTER the rows are rendered using $('.k-group-cell', row).html(...). But, you know, it is far not the best approach.

Please implement a grid option, say, groupCellTemplate:string|object – it won't be too hard. And let me know if you would like me to contribute.

When a user groups by a foreignkey column, it should show and sort by the value that's displayed in that column, NOT the underlying id value.  I do have a workaround, but it seems like this is something that should be handled "out of the box".

We have a problem when working with grid in batch edit mode which puts different fields in the In cell edit mode.

The problem is that cell that are not edited (for example you create a new row, edit only the first field, press save) are never validated. This is of course because they never went into edit mode, so the control and validation was never rendered.

Please give us a feature for such scenario.

If another value gets created, we want to be able to update the columns.values array without destroying the grid and recreating it.

Right now if you want to only show the editor for a column (eg bool field) you have to override the client template among other things and if you want to do it for many fields it can take a lot of code to accomplish.  It would be nice if there were a way to just specify for kendo to only show the editor for the field.

Hi,

     I posted an issue in forum thread.
http://www.telerik.com/forums/grouping-with-column-template-not-working

I'm stuck because grouping is not working on template column containing null values.  Is it possible to get a working solution?  It seems to be a simple null check not done in kendo framework...

Thank you for your help

When multi-select and batch editing is enabled, it would be nice to have a built-in feature to edit those rows all at once. Something like a popup with an editor for each column selected.

The basic idea:

Requirements
- Selection mode has to be multiple. Both row and cell should be fine.
- Edit mode: Batch preferably for performance reason (but allow other?).

Features
- [Grid widget] New multiEdit() method. Accepts an optional rowIndexes[], rowGuids[] or cellGuids[] parameter. If parameter array > 1 or parameter is null and selection > 1, open edit popup for specified or selected cells accordingly.
- [Toolbar] Built-in Edit button. Disabled if selection <= 1.
- [Popup] A popup with an editor for each selected (or passed into argument) columns.

The popup could potentially be template based but I don't know how this would work out with the editors not always available. I leave that up to you :)

Instead of a popup, it could also be (or as an extra optional feature maybe?) a fixed row right under the header that appears when you try to edit multiple rows. Sorta like the filter row but for editing.

Perhaps you could even give this feature it's own edit mode. That mode would display the fixed row permanently and would disable individual editing. Upon selection, that fixed row would take up the value of the selected row (or display "Multiple" when the values differ) and changing that value would set all the selected cells of the column to that value. 

PS. I saw the other multi-row editing suggestion. It was mainly about having mutliple rows opened for edit at once. I understand the technicalities behind why it's a bit of a mess to do. This is not what I'm asking for here. My suggestion involves having only a single editor per column

I'd like the ability to choose the behavior of mutli-row selection on a virtual grid with persisted selection.

 

For purpose of example, assume we have a virtual grid with 50 rows (pager controls not shown), a page size of 10, and persisted selection.

1. Select row 1 on page 1.

2. Scroll down to trigger page 2 to load (rows 11-20).

3. Select row 11, page 2.

4. Current Behavior: Both row 1 and row 11 remain selected.

5. Desired Behavior: Only row 11 remains selected.

 

Reasoning: I believe that a virtual scrolling grid should have selection behavior identical to a single page. That means that the only way to add rows to the selection is holding down control/shift during selection. In other words, on page 1 of the above example, if I select row 1, then row 2, only row 2 remains selected. If I select row 1, then Ctrl+click/Shift+click row 2, both remain selected. For virtual scrolling where multiple pages are displayed fluidly as if a single page, it seems odd to have the selection behave differently.
