I have my grid set up so that it receives some additional information in the json response. I want to use this additional information in the row's commands, but I can't quite figure out how. I've tried putting it in a hidden column, and the data is rendered (but not shown, as expected), but if I try to use #= variable # it literally appends that to the classes, not the value of that row cell.

How can I reference a row value elsewhere in the row? Using a template is fine if necessary.

Hello Steven,

Please check out following example which demonstrates how to get the corresponding data item to which the row is bound on custom command button’s click event:
http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/grid/custom-command
// This dataItem contains all fields from the model object to which the row is bound
var dataItem = this.dataItem($(e.currentTarget).closest("tr"));

Please check it out and let me know if it helps you.

Regards,

Thank you, this is very helpful for the commands! Is there a way I can access the information when binding? In addition to my original question, I'd like to use some of the data from the json response in a cell to dynamically display different text.

I should also clarify--I'd like to use the information to change the command button's class when binding, if that's possible.

Sorry for sending a third message. I found using a template for the row and I'm able to access the information that way, but nothing I try will add the commands to the table when I use a table to format the data (instead of an empty div like I was doing previously). How can I insert custom commands when using a table?

Hi Steven,

You can use a dataBound event to traverse all rows and change/add a class name. The same way you will be able to change the text of the command column. Please check the following dojo.
