I have a grid (integrated into ember/javascript) with an ajax response assigned as its datasource. Based on the response I can come up with my column title and width and i want to assign that to my grid. But everything i do i dont see any change reflected to the grid. I was wondering how i can change column properties after grid initialization.

Hello Niloofar,

In order to change the titles for particular columns and apply those changes you could retrieve the options that were used for the initialization of the widget with getOptions method, change the column from the columns collection as per your requirement and then use the setOptions method to pass the new settings:
var grid = $("#grid").data("kendoGrid");
var options = grid.getOptions();
options.columns[0].title = "new title";
grid.setOptions(options);

Hope this helps.

I have a question about how to access the column when column reorderable is set to true for the grid.   In this example the column is accessed via the index i.e.. options.columns[0].title.  This only works when reorderable is set to false.  Thanks so much for any help.

Hi Dave,

The columns collection will contain the reordered columns, so if you want to access a specific column you could traverse the columns collection and check the "field" property to find it.

If you have something different in mind, please provide more information about the exact requirement.
