Hi,

My row is binded to a certain item. I need to give this item as a variable to my custom command. How can I this?

the grid:
<div data-bind="kendoGrid: {
    data: items,
    columns: [
            {width: 90, title: 'Action', command: { text: 'Edit', click: editItem}},
            {field: 'Name',title: 'Name'}]"/>

the script:
editItem = function (item) {
            location.href = 'Item/Edit/' + item.Id;
}
Thus, what I want to do is pass the item (or directly the itemId) to my editItem function. Now item is the created button.
How can I do this?

Hello Tim,

I'm afraid that you cannot pass custom values to the click handler. However, you may retrieve the data item from within the click handler as shown in this online demo.

Ok,

I understand what you are saying. But what I want to accomplish is the same behavior as in this example:
http://demos.kendoui.com/web/grid/editing-popup.html

except in stead of having a popup I want to navigate to an other page. Isn't this possible?

Hi Tim,

Here is a modified function which combines your initial function with the approach shown in the demo I have pointed.

function editItem(e) {
    e.preventDefault();
 
    var dataItem = this.dataItem($(e.currentTarget).closest("tr"));
    location.href = 'Item/Edit/' + dataItem.Id;
}

Please have in mind that you will need to change the command name to be different then edit, as it is a built-in command name.

command: { text: 'Edit', name: "mycustomcommand", click: editItem}
