I'm new to Kendo UI/Telerik, but have been a web developer for over 15 years.

Please forgive my title as well, as I could be doing it completely wrong by doing this:

            dataBound:function(){
                $('.toolbar').kendoToolBar({
                    items: [ {
                        type: "splitButton",
                        text: "Edit",
                        click:function(e){
                            var grid = $('#grid').data('kendoGrid');

                            grid.editRow(e.target.parents('tr'))
                        },
                        menuButtons: [
                            { id: "foo", text: "Print", click:function(){alert('print')} },
                            { id: "bar", text: "Delete", click:function(e){
                                    var grid = $('#grid').data('kendoGrid');

                                    grid.removeRow(e.target.parents('tr'))
                                } },
                        ]
                    } ]
                });
            }

But that's what the demo shows. I’m a bit confused as to why this works with a hardcoded data source:

https://dojo.telerik.com/eMUwAqUH

 

I've been piecing together quite a bit on my own, but one thing has me stumped -- this seems like such a common requirement for Grid usage, and yet my searches don't seem give me anything for jQuery UI.

 

But as soon as I swap in my real data source (API call), when I hit Edit, then hit Edit again to save the change, the entire box disappears.

 

I took a short video:

This is a pretty big deal for me because all of my data tables are going to be API driven, and I want to use a dropdown for the action columns NOT individual buttons. A lot of the time I’m going to have more than just “Edit and Delete” so a dropdown makes more sense.

 

Any help would be appreciated, I'm sure you can literally swap out the dataSource and columns with a sample one, and you should get the exact same error. I'm running on the latest version of Edge, but same thing happens in Chrome.

Saw my video link didn't work, try this one:

https://www.loom.com/share/9d894316b4364efbae18c01e8ede9db4

Also, my code is below.

        var crudServiceBaseUrl = current_full_url + "?api=1&kendo_ui=1",
            dataSource = new kendo.data.DataSource({
                transport: {
                    read:  {
                        url: crudServiceBaseUrl,
                        dataType: "json",
                        type: "GET"
                    },
                    update: {
                        url: crudServiceBaseUrl,
                        dataType: "json",
                        type: "PUT"
                    },
                    destroy: {
                        url: crudServiceBaseUrl,
                        dataType: "json",
                        type: "DELETE"
                    },
                    create: {
                        url: crudServiceBaseUrl,
                        dataType: "json",
                        type: "POST"
                    },
                    parameterMap: function(options, operation) {
                        if (operation == 'read') {
                            return {
                                options
                            };
                        }
                    }
                },
                pageSize: 25,
                page: 1,
                total: 0,
                serverPaging: true,
                serverSorting: true,
                serverFiltering: true,
                schema: {
                    model: {
                        id: "id",
                        fields: {
                            id: { editable: false, nullable: false },
                            provider_id: { editable: false, nullable: false },

                            keywords: { type: "string", validation: { required: false } },
                            updated_at: { editable: false, nullable: false }
                        }
                    },
                    data: function(response) {
                        return response.provider_companies;
                    },
                    total: function(response) {
                        return response.totalRecords;
                    },
                    errors: function(response) {
                        if ( response.failure ) {
                            console.log("Errors", response.msg)
                            return response.msg;
                        }
                    },
                }
            });

        $("#grid").kendoGrid({
            dataSource: dataSource,
            filterable: true,
            pageable: true,
            sortable: true,
            height: 550,
            toolbar: ["create", "search"],
            columns: [
                { field: "name", title: "Name" },
                { field: "description", title: "Description" },
                { field: "logo", title: "Logo" },
                { field: "keywords", title: "Keywords" },
                { template: "<div class='toolbar'></div>" }
            ],
            editable: "inline",
            dataBound:function(){
                $('.toolbar').kendoToolBar({
                    items: [ {
                        type: "splitButton",
                        text: "Edit",
                        click:function(e){
                            var grid = $('#grid').data('kendoGrid');

                            grid.editRow(e.target.parents('tr'))
                        },
                        menuButtons: [
                            { id: "foo", text: "Print", click:function(){alert('print')} },
                            { id: "bar", text: "Delete", click:function(e){
                                    var grid = $('#grid').data('kendoGrid');

                                    grid.removeRow(e.target.parents('tr'))
                                } },
                        ]
                    } ]
                });
            }
        });

I should note that if I use the command buttons instead, it works fine with both inline and popup. Currently I'm liking popup more because I have hidden values that I can show via the template, which is awesome. 

But without the dropdown in the Action column, I'm afraid it's going to look cluttered with a bunch of buttons, so getting this to work is my top choice. 

Appreciate any help!
