    I would like to enable or disable the custom command based on the current line value.

    My model, called ItemModel has a property called HasPicture, custom command called "GetPictureCommand" should be disabled when HasPicture returns false.

                //.ToolBar(t => t.Search())
                .Columns(columns =>
                    columns.Bound(f => f.No);
                    columns.Bound(f => f.Description);
                    columns.Bound(f => f.Brand);
                    columns.Command(c => c.Custom("GetPictureCommand").Text(" ").IconClass("k-icon k-i-image").Click("getImage")).Width(52);
                    columns.Bound(f => f.PurchasesQty).Format("{0:N2}").HtmlAttributes(new { style = "text-align: right;" });
                    columns.Command(command => command.Custom("ItemLedgerEntryPurchaseCommand").Text(" ").IconClass("k-icon k-i-arrow-drill").Click("showPurchaseDetails")).Width(52);
                    columns.Bound(f => f.NetChange).Format("{0:N2}").HtmlAttributes(new { style = "text-align: right;" });
                    columns.Command(command => command.Custom("ItemLedgerEntryCommand").Text(" ").IconClass("k-icon k-i-arrow-drill").Click("showDetails")).Width(52);
                    columns.Bound(f => f.LastEntryDate).Format("{0:dd/MM/yyyy}");
                .Pageable() // Enable paging
                .Sortable() // Enable sorting
                .Scrollable(scrollable => scrollable.Virtual(true))
                .HtmlAttributes(new { style = "height:430px;" })
                .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource //Configure the Grid data source.
                .Ajax() //Specify that Ajax binding is used.
                .Read(read => read.Action("Item_ReadData", "Home").Data("additionalData"))

    How can I do this?

    Dear Dario,

    Thank you for the provided code snippet.

    The Visible property of the command column gives the opportunity to conditionally hide the button based on a field from the model. It accepts a JavaScript function name. Here is an example:

    columns.Command(c => c.Custom("GetPictureCommand").Text(" ").IconClass("k-icon k-i-image").Click("getImage").Visible("getBoolean")).Width(52);

    And add the respective JavaScript function

    function getBoolean(e) {
          return e.HasPicture;

    Let me know if you need further assistance.
