    I want to change the default text for update and cancel commands when inline editing (edit and destroy commands are not problem). How can I do that?

    Also, is it possible to have both inline and popup editing in the same row (but with different commands) ?


    (sorry for my bad english:)

    Me too...

    Actually i have a hack in the DataBound event of the grid:

    $(".k-grid-edit").html('<span class="k-icon k-edit"></span>');
    $(".k-grid-delete").html('<span class="k-icon k-delete"></span>'); 

    But that's not working when the popup editor is shown and some user inputs are done.

    Developix solution is, as far as I understand, about changing the icon / removing the text (even that you might use it for setting your own text).

    For setting the text of a button in Kendo UI Grid use something like this in the Grid initialization:
    toolbar: [
        { name: "create", text: "Add record" },
        { name: "edit", text: "Enter edit mode" },
        { name: "cancel", text: "Cancel Pending Changes" },
        { name: "save", text: "Save This Record" },
        { name: "destroy", text: "Remove Record" }
