The issue has already been resolved in another thread, but I will also post the answer here, so others can benefit too:
method is not documented, because it is intended for internal use only.
The described behavior occurs, because in locked columns scenarios, to tables (bodies, footers, headers) are created - one for the locked content, and one for the regular one. This leads to two elements with the .k-footer-template
method on the other hand returns a string for the whole footer regardless of whether there are frozen columns
The described scenario is not supported out-of-the-box, but the workaround is to programmatically get only what you need from the string, returned by the footerTemplate()
function, and replace with it the contents of the regular footer
I have modified the provided dojo with a sample implementation of the suggested approach:
Please mind that the involved custom logic should be adjusted accordingly every time the grouping configuration, or the number of locked columns is modified.
