    Hi, I'm converting over a grid from Telerik for AJAX to Kendo.  I was wondering if there is a way to display a message like "No records to display" in the grid's data area instead of hidden down at bottom in pager section.  See screenshot for desired functionality.

    Hi Bob,

    This scenario is not supported out-of-the-box by Kendo UI Grid, however it can be achieved using additional code. As a possible approach I would suggest to attach a handler to the Grid dataBound event, check the data length and prepend an additional HTML element which contains the message. For your convenience here is a basic example which demonstrates the suggested approach in action.

    Version I'm using (2016.2.607) has config option "norecords", and displays this in the grid's data area.
