    I would like to localize the "No data found" message in the grid when the column filter is not overriden. In my grid I have filterable mode="row" so by setting the column values to collection the filter will work as expected. Is there a way to easily override this label without customizing the filter? 

    <kendo:grid-column title="Field1" field="field1">
        <kendo:grid-column-values value="${field1Values}"/>


    I found the <kendo:grid-filterable-messages> tag which has options to translate a few properties, so I expected that this would be there too.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Daniel,

    The setting which changes the Kendo UI editors "no data" template is part of the respective widget's settings.

    Especially when there is a foreign key column (column values), the Kendo UI Grid will generate a different filterable UI. For the foreign key column, it will be a Kendo UI ComboBox, as opposed to the standard string fields, when the default editor is a Kendo UI AutoComplete.

    I suggest you add an event handler to the Kendo UI Grid dataBound event and use the setOptions() method to override the default noDataTemplate.


              var filterCells = $(".k-filter-row").find("input");
                if($(cell).data("role") == "combobox"){
                  var combo = $(cell).data("kendoComboBox")
                  combo.setOptions({noDataTemplate: "Nothing Found"})
                if ($(cell).data("role")== "autocomplete"){
                  var autocomplete =  $(cell).data("kendoAutoComplete")
                  autocomplete.setOptions({noDataTemplate: "Nothing Found"})

    Here is a runnable sample for your convenience:
