    Hi kendo team and users, I read that sample about changing the grid language, on that link:

    http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/grid/localization

    I tried to edit that demo, and change the "full grid reconstruction" to a simple setOptions, and it seems to work:

    http://dojo.telerik.com/@foxontherock/aJOBu/3

    The $.getScripts replace the Grid prototype, so I just update the current gri messages from the prototype, like that:

    grid.setOptions({
      messages: kendo.ui.Grid.prototype.options.messages
    });

    Do you suggest to use that method or not? possible memory leak or something else?

    And, is it available for all other kendo components?

    For now, everything works fine, and the language change seems faster than rebuilding the whole grid.

    Thank you

    Hello Dani,

    The setOptions method is not supported for all of the widgets. For these that have the method, it will not leak.

    Additionally you may check the known issues about using setOptions in our public repository here:
    https://github.com/telerik/kendo-ui-core/issues?q=is%3Aissue+setOptions+is%3Aopen

    If you find an issue with memory leaking, please let us know, so we can fix it.

    Regards,
    Vasil
