    I have a kendo grid with no datasource specified. Items get added to the grid via a javascript function:

     

    var grid = $("#MyGrid").data("kendoGrid");

    grid.dataSource.insert(data);

     

    After items are added to the grid, if I call grid.saveAsExcel(); nothing gets exported and the grid get's cleared out.

     

    What approach should I use to get the data to export?

     

    No server call should be needed for this at all. I just want to export the items that have been added via javascript.

    I specified a datasource on the grid with no read operation and a serveroperation as false and the export seems to be working now.

    Hi Marc,

    I'm glad you've managed to find a solution for this specific scenario.
    Generally, you can also check the local binding option of the grid:
