    I am adding a click function to a column containing a button like so

                .Columns(columns =>
                    columns.Command(command =>
                        command.Custom("customedit").Click("openScanLines").Text("").HtmlAttributes(new { title = "View Scan Details"});

    We have an option to save the grid options to be loaded a later point.  So we use $("MyGrid").data("kendoGrid").getOptions() to get the options on the grid, Stringify it, and save it to a database  Then we pull that JSON string from the database and use $("MyGrid").data("kendoGrid").setOptions(options) to load them. The problem is the "Click" function is always missing from the $("MyGrid").data("kendoGrid").getOptions(), resulting in the Click function no longer working when the option are then set.  What's the deal?  How can I retain the click function for these columns?
