    I have a Grid where i group by the Year and Month from a DateTime (see attached Image - Table1), but without defining the columns and using the Title they display like so (see Table2 image):

    • "TimesheetWorkDateMonthYear.Year: 2017" instead of "Year: 2017"
    • "TimesheetWorkDateMonthYear.Month: Jul" instead of "Month: Jul"

    How can i make them display properly without showing the Columns or even adding them?

    columns.Bound(o => o.TimesheetWorkDateMonthYear.Year).Width(100).Title("Year").ClientTemplate("#: kendo.toString(TimesheetWorkDateMonthYear, 'yyyy') #");
    columns.Bound(o => o.TimesheetWorkDateMonthYear.Month).Width(100).Title("Month").ClientTemplate("#: kendo.toString(TimesheetWorkDateMonthYear, 'MMM') #");


    I've tried adding '.Visable(false)' to the Columns but this doesn't work also.

    Hello Lee,

    Based on the provided information I assume that the requirement is to group the data by some field but omit binding that field to a column and modify the content of the group header. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    A possible solution to modify the header of the group is to select the element and set the text as required within the DataBound event handler.


    // attach event handler
            .Events(x=> x.DataBound("onDataBound"))
    // event handler
        function onDataBound() {
            this.table.find('.k-grouping-row p').each(function () {
                $(this).contents().each(function () {
                    if (this.nodeType == 3) {
                        var splitted = this.textContent.split('.')
                        this.textContent = splitted[splitted.length-1]

    Hi Georgi,

    I have to give you many thanks as this is the first time i got a solid answer straight away. Normally i'm replied with incorrect information or just giving me a link to the demo's which we clearly had already gone through. So thank you!

    Whilst this is a hacky way, it works! So thank you.
