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.
