    We've had an issue with sorting large, grouped dataSources only in Chrome.

    In this thread it was suggested that you have to ensure there's a sort definition on the dataSource:

    It appears to work, but only sometimes, and seems to be random when it fails. There was previously a bug filed in Chrome because it uses an unstable sort, but this issue has been closed as "Working as Intended" by the Chrome team.

    We're using kendo controls v2017.3.913, but as the bug in Chrome was closed, is there a possibility of re-addressing this with Telerik?

    Hello Paul,

    Typically, if you are using a group rule with the dir option to sort the grouped data everything should be fine. No matter the old Chrome bug, as sorting comes from the code within the grouping logic and bypasses the chrome's sorting algorithm. 

    However, in order for me to revise all that and address the issue it would be really helpful if you can provide a working example which to enable me to reproduce the problem and examine the problem. You can try using a dojo ( to showcase the problem. 

    Progress Telerik
    Try our brand new, jQuery-free Angular components built from ground-up which deliver the business app essential building blocks - a grid component, data visualization (charts) and form elements.
