According to

http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/web/listview#methods-add

you can read that the method add() is adding an empty item as first item and prepares it for editing.

What I expect from the method name is to be able to add a populated item.
Is the only way of doing that to change the data source?

Hi,

If you want to add a pre-populated item you should work directly with ListView's DataSource API. Please check the insert method which allows you to add an item at a specific position or the add method which will append the item at the end.

Hi,

You can use $("#listView").data("kendoListView").dataSource where listView is the ID of your widget.
I suggest you to check also this help topic as it explains the widget basics.
