 columns.Bound("").HeaderTemplate("#=getTitleforAllownceColumn(data)#").ClientTemplate("#=getTemplateForAllownceColumn(data)#");
columns.Bound("").Title("#=getTitleforDeductionColumn(data)#") or .HeaderTemplate("#=getTitleforDeductionColumn(data)#").ClientTemplate("#=getTemplateForDeductionColumn(data)#");

 

I want to set title dynamically through a java script method so that i can iterate through a list of items that i don't have idea how many members will be inside the list and what will be their value and description.

ClientTemplate is hitting the method but title and headertemplate do not

Is there any way i can achieve this.

Hi Shazli,

If you want to generate a dynamic list of columns, you can consider the approach shown in this example:
Bind the Grid to DataTable

There is also a client-side approach that generates the Grid columns and model on the fly based on a JSON response from a service:
Create Grids with Dynamic Columns and Data Types

Binding the header template and title using client template expressions will not work because the columns are created in the Grid before the data is actually available and these specific templates do not have a data context to take values from.
