    I'm trying to extend telerik kendo grid with some custom functionality (buttons). It relies on row selection. Is it possible to subscribe to selection change event for all grids on page, including those which are not rendered yet? It should work in analogy to the on() jquery method.

    What I want to achieve is basically enabling/disabling some grid buttons in toolbar based on whether a row is selected or not. So maybe I'm going into wrong direction from the start and it can be done easier?

    Hello Oleksandr,

    In general, you cannot wire the change event of non-existing widget. It needs to be initialized in order to wire its events. Once they are rendered, you can use jQuery to wire the change event manually. Check this Dojo demo for more details.

    If you want to modify widget on row selection, then wiring the change event is the correct approach.
