    I use the script like 'ex1' but it will very slow when the event is too much,so I want use pushDestroy to remove events from another datasource like 'ex2' but not useful


    function remove(ownerId){

    var raw = $("#scheduler").data("kendoScheduler");

    var length = raw.length;

    var item, i;

    for(i=length-1; i>=0; i--){

         item = raw[i];

         if (item.ownerId==ownerId)

         { $("#scheduler").data("kendoScheduler").dataSource.remove(item); }




     var sharableDataSource = new{
                transport: {
                    read: {

                        url: "/api/tasks",
                        data: { id: id }
                schema: {
                    model: {
                        id: "TaskID",
                        fields: {
                            eventID: { from: "EventID" },
                            taskID: { from: "TaskID" },
                            title: { from: "Title", validation: { required: true } },
                            location: { from: "Location" },
                            start: { type: "date", from: "Start" },
                            end: { type: "date", from: "End" },
                            description: { from: "Description" },
                            recurrenceId: { from: "RecurrenceID" },
                            recurrenceRule: { from: "RecurrenceRule" },
                            recurrenceException: { from: "RecurrenceException" },
                            ownerId: { from: "OwnerID"},
                            isAllDay: { type: "boolean", from: "IsAllDay" },
                            alert: { from: "Alert", type: "object", defaultValue: "" },
                            showfor: { from: "Showfor", type: "object", defaultValue: "busy" },

    In ex2, you don't specify data for your dataSource. The data in read sends parameters to your remote service. Here is documentaiton on the dataSource:

    $("#scheduler").data("kendoScheduler").dataSource.pushDestroy(; will correctly 'remove' (without marking them as removed) all data in that is in the scheduler dataSource, however, you have to put data into sharableDataSource, which you are not doing.

    DataSource has a specific data field, data isn't set with the read data field.

    Here is a Dojo that has a simple dataSource that does what you want to do in ex2. Note the dataSource data field.

    Hi Hung-Chi,

    The remove() method of the Kendo dataSource will mark the items as dirty, so they will also be removed from the remote DataSource. On the other hand, the pushDestroy() method would only remove the events from the local instance of the DS. The items on the remote would not be affected and no calls will be sent.

    This is the reason for the difference in the performance, when using the two different methods.

    If you need to improve performance and at the same time remove items on the remote too, I would suggest you to enable the batch editing option of the DataSource, iterate over the items as on example 1 and call the sync() method to send the changes to the remote:
    dataSource: {
        batch: true,
    function remove(ownerId){
       var dataSource = $("#scheduler").data("kendoScheduler").dataSource;
        var raw =;
        var length = raw.length;
        var item, i;
        for(i=length-1; i>=0; i--){
             item = raw[i];
             if (item.ownerId==ownerId){
