Hi,
I have a datasource that contains an object (string) with a certain Order status code.
(e.g. "N", "A")

In my old asp.net application, I used to translate this code to a resource file in my application. (e.g. "N", becomes "New")
I used the onitemdatabound event (server side), to alter the contents of this cell.

What is the best approach to do this with asp.net mvc and kendo UI?
Would it be better that my WCF response already contains these translations? (however, I don't want to pass the culture to the WCF service I guess)
Or can kendo.ui Grid also change cell values (with some sort of jquery function that reads out a a resource file in my project?)

Thanks,
Nicolas

Hello Nocalas,

The best approach would be to directly send translated items to the Grid (your WCF service return them in such way that they do not need transformation). If this is not possible then I would suggest you to use a template column which calls a JavaScript function that will handle this work. Here is a small example:
