We are evaluating the KendoGrid as a candidate solution for a data application currently under design.  The dataset behind this application has a lot of columns.  Therefore, when we initialize the kendogrid, we want to be certain that the columns we ask for in the columns: setup only retrieves those columns from the OData service we have requested.  Typically this is done with a $select=col1,col2 syntax with OData.  For example, the following KendoUI sample feed supports this syntax:

http://demos.kendoui.com/service/Northwind.svc/Orders?$select=EmployeeID

to only return the EmployeeID from the service. 

We set the grid up, and have just a few columns defined.  When we watch the traffic in Fiddler however we can clearly see that the "full dataset" is being returned from the UI. Ideally, whatever we define in the columns: or schema: configuration arguments should filter down what's returned from the OData service. 

Does KendoGrid support this?  What would the configuraiton look like?

No answers yet. Maybe you can help?
