Hi,

In my project I am using the custom add row functionality where the row is a row template, I am  using the grid.dataSource.add(dataitem) method to add the model data for the empty row as I have to send the data from server to the empty row. Below are the problems I am facing

1. When I do grid.dataSource.add(dataitem) the row is always getting at the bottom of the table.

2. After adding the row I am intializing the controls like (datetimepicker,timepicker,select2 etc) for the added row, this works fine if I add row for first time. When I click again to add row with grid.dataSource.add(dataitem) the first row is loosing its initialization like datetimepickers, select 2 and others. So when I debug I found that every time I click add new row with dataSource.add() the table is again calling the rowTemplate function for all the data items in the datasource so the control initializations are getting destroyed.

So can you please help how to resolve those two.

Hi,

You can use the dataSource.insert() method instead of the add() one to provide the index the new item should be inserted in.

As for the second issue, the most straightforward approach would be to handle the Grid dataBound event, and initialize all required Kendo UI widgets from the respective already rendered elements in the row templates.

I hope this helps.

For the second suggestion where you mention to re initalize all the controls again for all the rows in grid, does this affect the performance if I already have 10000 rows with controls already initialized and when on new add row click again in the databound I have re initialize all the controls in 10000 rows as well as for the new row?

Also one more question as I am using row template can I use the grouping for the grid.

Hi,

It is highly recommended to use either paging or virtual scrolling for Grids with many records (paging is sensible even with not so many records when the Grid rows' combined height is greater than the one of the viewport). Then only the currently rendered number of rows will be recreated (along with their widgets).

Creating the widgets in the dataBound event should not affect performance, as when this event is raised, this means that the Grid is rebound and rerendered anyway.

As for your second question, combining a row template with the Grid grouping functionality is possible, but a TD element with the "k-group-cell" class should be added to each row (the Grouping with row templates section):

http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/controls/data-management/grid/walkthrough#configuration-Grouping

I hope this helps.
