This might be an odd question, but I am using the datasource object to get data from the server for my grid, but there is additional information I want to display elsewhere.  Right now I get the list of results, the total count, and a count of customers contacted.  I want to display this number in a span for the user to work with, but I don't know where this information is stored or even if it is stored when the datasource completed event is fired.  Any help would be appreciated

I'm not an expert, but this should give you access to whatever the server is returning back to the client:

new kendo.data.DataSource({
    transport: {
                read: {
                    url: "/urlToCall",
                    dataType: "json",
                    type: "GET",
                    complete: function(data,xhr){
                        result = JSON.parse(data.responseText);
                        // this result object is what is returned from server
                    }
                }
    },
    schema: {}
}

Work for me in update transport. Good luck

Lothar,

Well that worked, though it took me a bit to realize that JSON.parse comes from another library.  Still, thanks.
