    I've currently inherited an application which has numerous Kendo grids (and other controls) throughout, and I'm trying to fix an error which keeps cropping up now and again - specifically when the user is no longer authenticated.

    I know what the solution is for a single instance of the control - return a flag to indicate authentication failed, and then detect this in the error handler and perform the authentication.

    The problem is am I really going to have to handle this for every instance of a Kendo control I have? Is there not a global error handler I can hook into for the DataSource? Or the grid or all Kendo controls?

    This would be a more straighforward short term solution than refactoring everything to specific error handlers, etc.

    You could specify a default error handler for the dataSource e.g. = function (e) {

    Thanks Daniel. Looks like an interesting solution. I actually received a response on StackOverflow which I've just implemented and which works well. It has the added bonus of hooking into all Ajax on the site - not just the Kendo controls.

    But your solution would come in handy just for handling Kendo DataSource errors.
