From the provided picture I assume that your question is related to Kendo UI Grid. I am afraid at this stage "No records to display" message is only available in the pager and showing it in the middle of the blank grid is not supported. Actually there is a public item for "Showing no data text inside Grid when there's no data
" at our UserVoice portal, so if you wish you may cast a vote or leave a comment for it. The more votes the suggestion collects, the higher priority will have. Please excuse us for the inconvenience caused.
