Would be good to have ability to to something like this on an observable object:
o.set({ a: 1 })
I.e. pass an object to the set function to update/add properties in o from that object.

There are several undocumented methods on the data source which provide some really nice functionality. The DataSource is able to store multiple 'pages' of data in an internal collections of ranges that can be accessed and populated by the range() and prefetch() methods. It looks like this is used mostly to support virtual grid scrolling, but I have found it very useful for other applications where a data source uses server operations. This is a really great feature and I'd like to see it officially supported in the future!

Currently when I choose a column filter and click on the filter button, a request is sent to the server and data is bound. However, if I work with large data sources and I know in advance that I want to filter by FirstName and LastName, for example, I would like to choose both the filters first, and when filter settings are finalized, I would like to rebind the grid with a button click, for example.

This would enable to bind only once the grid, instead of n times, if the user chooses lazy filtering which would be very useful, especially in the case of large data sources

Currently if i set filter on my remote data source it fetches the data immediately, so if i want a callback i have to call fetch which will talk to server again.
What be really good is to be able to set sorting/filter and receive a callback when data is retrieved from server. 
E.g.
dataSource.fetch({
  filter: {},
  sorting: {}
}) // returns a promise
  .done(function(e){})
  .fail(function(e){});

If my callback takes 10ms or 300ms I still get the control whiting itself out and showing a loading animation.  Problem though is if it takes 10ms it looks like the control is flickering. 

Let me set a min duration before the animation shows up.  So I could say only show the loading animation if it's taking longer than 100ms.

In the datasource can you give us a property which will tell the DS that it needs to stringify the parameters so I don't have to keep googling this syntax?
parameterMap: function (options) {
                return kendo.stringify(options); // kendo.stringify serializes to JSON string
            }

So just like read: { stringifyParams:true ...}

The HiearchicalDataSource should support XML data binding. If not, then the examples and documentation should be updated until that support is present.

"Currently the custom offline storage does not support asynchronous requests". I received this response from Kendo support is response to an issue we have using SQLite for on offline storage. When we try this with local storage or session storage, dataSource.fetch().then() resolves correctly Please implement with SQLite.

see Ticket ID: 981260

var dataSource = new kendo.data.DataSource({
      type: "odata-v4",       
  });

works correct, but if you just define parameterMap
the payload of parameters is not "odata-v4" it changes to old odata
with this:

var dataSource = new kendo.data.DataSource({
        type: "odata-v4",
        transport: {
            parameterMap: function(data)
            {
                return data;
            }
        }
});

This feels like I set dataType JSON for transport, and if I just define beforeSend in Ajax Request,
I suddenly becomes XML just by defining a overwrite function.

When retrieving data from a remote datasource with a fetchxml via soap that include link entites you get objects that have property names that contain dots like "account.accountid" for example. That doesn't work with Kendo Grid for example. Kendo always tries to go one level deeper if the property name contains a dot. Hence you always have to parse/refactor the results of a retrieve.

FYI - There are several related requests that have been voted by 100s of users and marked as completed. However, this support is only at the surface and not complete.

We need all kendo components to consistently support binding to more than just primitive properties but at a minimum to models with Id (for reference) and labels (for display).

Many kendo components support this simple concept with 'dataTextField' and 'dataValue' field, but as soon as we try to customize something seemingly simple (for example multi-checkbox filters on grid columns) we are left with custom coding because at that point kendo falls back to only supporting simple arrays of strings etc.

Thanks.

Currently, an inherited DropDownList widget can only bind to another of the same type  or another vanilla DropDownList (via  alternativeNames array at kendo.all.js line 32813) 

A use case is that I originally created ParentCustomDDL and ChildCustomDDL with the intention of cascading from parent -> child. Since alternativeNames is hard-coded, I was forced to merge the code into one clumsy widget so that name matches name.

Hello,

 I knew there was "set" function for kendo.data.ObservableObject, it could change value of specified field.

But after this action, we need call "sync" method for data source manually, and sync action will fire some events/ data bound again.

Is there another method, that we only hope sync value of specified field, without fire events and data bound again?

Thank you.

PouchDB is a great way to both persist and sync data. It would be beneficial for DataSource to support PouchDB database, the way it currently supports SignalR and OData.
Here's PouchDB site: http://pouchdb.com

We are using MVVM, a DataSource, and a Template to display a list of objects. We have a div rigged up with "source: vehicles", and the "vehicles" variable is a DataSource. We also rig up the DataSource with a Pager, so it doesn't display all vehicles at once. We default the DataSource to a PageSize of 20, then when a user reaches the bottom of the list, it automatically extends the PageSize by 10 (endless scrolling).

The problem with this is that every time the PageSize changes, it redraws every single item that is displayed. So when the PageSize reaches 100-ish and beyond, the browser begins to lag on every PageSize change, since it is redrawing every item every time.

We need an option for the PageSize change to recognize which items are already drawn and only add to the list the new items that need shown.

A single managed Ajax / Socket connection (can set for Ajax or Sockets or have it fall back) that you can pass a model to on the client and a command CRUD (Get, Post, Put, Delete) and an ASP.NET WEB API implementation on server side in Web API / Socket.

The issue I encounter with DataSources is that you have to set up a connection test it and for every one its more work and testing and possibility of error  in the app. I just want a client side connection to Sockets or Web API that I can tell to save something and have to set up and configure this connection once in JS and onece in C#

If you pass the Universal Data Source Data Bus a Model a Command (Get, Post, Put, Delete) and a Name / Path for the Model it hits a universal service that processes this it generates a predictable Web API call pattern that Web API can easily be set up to (Controllers to meet) or one big controller

http://odata.github.io/WebApi/#04-26-InOperator

 

OData v4 now supports the IN operator as a short hand for multiple or queries (as of http://docs.oasis-open.org/odata/new-in-odata/v4.01/cn01/new-in-odata-v4.01-cn01.html#_Toc485385090 ). This could help to change code such as:


var selectedStations = $("#cmbStations").data("kendoMultiSelect").dataItems();
            var stationIds = [];
            for (var i = 0; i < selectedStations.length; i++) {
                stationIds.push({
                    field: "StationId",
                    operator: "eq",
                    value: stationId
                });
            }
            dataSource.filter({
                logic: "or",
                filters: stationIds
            });

into a much cleaner:


var selectedStations = $("#cmbStations").data("kendoMultiSelect").dataItems();
            var stationIds = [];
            for (var i = 0; i < selectedStations.length; i++) {
                stationIds.push(selectedStations[i].StationId);
            }
            dataSource.filter({
                field: "StationId",
                operator: "in",
                value: stationId
            });

This is more of a feature request...

If I want to refresh a datasource every 60 seconds, be it a grid, a dropdown, etc., I have to add a snippet of code something like this:

var interval = 60000;

         setInterval(function()

         {
             $("#my-grid").data("kendoGrid").dataSource.read();
         }, interval);

Yes, I realize this is trivial, but it would be nice if you could add an AutoRefresh function directly to the DataSource API that handled all of this under the covers.  Example:

           .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
               .WebApi()
               .PageSize(20)
               .Model(model =>
               {
                   model.Id(m => m.StoreId);
               })
               .Read(read => read.Url(Url.HttpRouteUrl("GetData", null)).Data("additionalData"))
               .AutoRefresh(60) // seconds
               .Events(e => e.Error("onError"))
           )
