Hi!
I want to fill a grid with a complex json returned from a webservice.
My json contains two things:
> "data": array with the records that will fill the grid
> "columns": array with the config(layout) of the grid

I have successfully filled the grid with the "data" by specifying the model data.
My problem is that i cannot  get the "columns" from the datasource. Is there a way to do it?

Here is my JSON
001.{
002.    "data": [
003.        {
004.            "id": 0,
