After posting this question publicly, I also submitted a support ticket and received this reply:
uid = $(
model = $("#grid").data("kendoGrid").dataSource.getByUid(uid);
- Is this the best way for me to update Project_Name in the edited row in the grid, or is there a better way to do so without having to rebind the grid or refresh the page? In order to avoid grid rebind you can use the aforementioned approach.
