Hi,

I have a Kendo Grid with selectable: "multiple, cell" option. I would like to select multiple cells, then click on a button outside the grid to change the selected cells background color. Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks

Hi Tomislav,


To achieve this you could change the styles for the cells/rows with k-state-selected class, which is added to the selected ones.
E.g.
$(".myButton").click(function () {
    //grid is the name of the grid
    $("#grid tbody .k-state-selected").css({
        "background-image": "none",
        "background-color": "blue"
    });
});

Thanks, that works.

Could you tell me how I could change input values of those selected cells?

For instance, let's say I select 5 cells which are all populated with '0', and then on click I want to change their values to '5'.

Hi Tomislav,


This will depend on the exact Grid implementation and the current requirements. Could you please share the Grid configuration and what exactly do you mean by "input values" - the model values, some <input> elements that are contained in the cells or probably something else?

I am looking forward to hearing from you so I could assist you further.

Here's the grid configuration:

//remove spinners from kendoNumericTextBox
function editNumberWithoutSpinners(container, options) {
        $('<input data-text-field="' + options.field + '" ' +
                'data-value-field="' + options.field + '" ' +
                'data-bind="value:' + options.field + '" ' +
                'data-format="' + options.format + '"/>')
                .appendTo(container)
                .kendoNumericTextBox({
                    spinners: false,
                    min: 0
                });
 }
 
$("#grid").kendoGrid({
        dataSource: {
            transport: {
                read: "/Kendo/GetData",
                update: {
                    url: "/Kendo/Update",
                    dataType: "jsonp"
                },
                destroy: {
                    url: "/Kendo/Destroy",
                    dataType: "jsonp"
                },
                create: {
                    url: "/Kendo/Create",
                    dataType: "jsonp"
                },
                parameterMap: function (options, operation) {
                    if (operation !== "read" && options.models) {
                        return { models: kendo.stringify(options.models) };
                    }
                }
            },
            batch: true,
            pageSize: 20,
            schema: {
                model: {
                    id: "Id",
                    fields: {
                        Dan1: { type: "number" },
                        Dan2: { type: "number" },
                        Dan3: { type: "number" },
                        Dan4: { type: "number" },
                        Dan5: { type: "number" }
                    }
                }
            }
        },
        editable: {
            update: true,
            destroy: false
        },
        toolbar: ["save", "cancel"],       
        height: 430,
        filterable: false,
        sortable: true,
        pageable: true,
        scrollable: true,
        navigatable: true,
        selectable: "multiple, cell",
        columns: [
            { field: "Dan1", title: "1", editor: editNumberWithoutSpinners},
            { field: "Dan2", title: "2", editor: editNumberWithoutSpinners},
            { field: "Dan3", title: "3", editor: editNumberWithoutSpinners},
            { field: "Dan4", title: "4", editor: editNumberWithoutSpinners},
            { field: "Dan5", title: "5", editor: editNumberWithoutSpinners}],
        edit: function (e) {
            var input = e.container.find("input");     //select (highlight) the content automatically
            input.focus(function (e) {               
                setTimeout(function () {
                    input.select();
                });
            });
        },
});

Let's say I have few rows of data populated with numbers. I want to select multiple cells and then on click on a button outside the grid
change their values to some other number, let's say '8'. See the attached screenshot.

Hello Tomislav,


There is a way to achieve this. Usually when a model value has to be changed, the set method should be used, so that the observable object becomes aware of the change. Nevertheless in the current case, I would suggest not to use it, because this will cause the Grid to be redrawn after the first cell is changed. Here is a sample implementation.
E.g.
<button class="change">Change</button>
 
$(".change").click(function () {
    var grid = $("#Grid").data("kendoGrid");
    var cellsToChange = grid.select();
 
    for (var i = 0; i < cellsToChange.length; i++) {
        var item = grid.dataItem($(cellsToChange[i]).closest("tr"));
        item.ProductName = "new value";
    }
     
    grid.refresh();
});

Please keep in mind that when the Grid is refreshed, the new values will be displayed in the table and the selection will be lost.

Dimiter,
Using your example,  my grid cell values change , but the [save changes] from toolbar.save() is not enabled.
I tried .set but I think .set  removes <tr> , causing a second .closest("tr" to not work.
Any ideas?
Thanks, Peter
