I have implemented the KenoUI javascript Grid within an application. I have the filtering all working correctly, except it seems the KendoUI Grid doesn't support the ability to filter blank/emtpy field values.

Basically, in the filter dropdowns, I need there to be a "Blank" option that allows for only items where that field is either null or an empty string. How do you add this option to the dropdown?

Anyone? Is this even feasibly possible to be implemented?

It would seem, from my usage experience, the Kendo UI Grid is EXTREMELY limited in extensibility features and really not a very good Grid. It's JavaScript and should have extensibility built-in as its design, but it clearly does not in certain major featuresets; Filter functionality is one. This is not an attribution of the Grid being built in JavaScript and being browser based, but actually of poor software design.

I think I can hear crickets chirping to this question...
