    How do I add a button to the toolbar of a grid? There isn't much documentation other than using the default commands, which aren't helpful. Ideally, I should be  able to say, 

    toolbar: [{
    name: 'new',
    id: 'createNew',
    text: "Create New ",
    click: function(e) {
    // do stuff

    I've seen other solutions where I define a template, but I think that is a poor solution, especially if your app is highly modularized. How do you add a button via config options?

    Hello Jeff,

    The full list of configuration settings of the toolbar can be found in the documentation:

    Have in mind that a click handler property is not available. However, the grid adds a custom class that contains the name of the command. Therefore the click handler can be attached as shown below:

    $(".k-grid-new").click(function(e){ // note that the class is k-grid-new since the name of the command is new
      // handler body

    For your convenience below you will find a sample which demonstrates the above approach:
