In an application I'm developing, i need to use the same space to display information from different sources with different formats in a grid according to what item was selected on a TreeView.

i found two ways to achieve this: 
1. find the grid then destroy and recreate it.
2. find the grid then change datasoruce/options/

I'm very new to Kendo, so i'm not sure which approach would be wiser. 

any advice?

Hello Nir,

Generally speaking both approaches are valid. If you do not need to change the modify the grid column settings but just to change the displayed data it is better to modify the dataSource (filter or set a new one).
In case you would like to completely change the Grid settings you have to destroy the widget and re-create it.
