I have used Kendo Grid in my project to display data. Here to insert grid data in my datasource, i have used the bellow code. But in the bellow code in insert statement i have provided field name of grid and have values assigned to it.
For example(AMOUNT: objGridData[idx].AMOUNT)

Hence my requirement is, that i need to do insert in my datasource without specifying field name as in future columns of grid might change for example can we use "datasource.add()".

// Insert Records to the Grid
 for (var idx = 0; idx < objGridData.length; idx++) {
 var newrec= grid.dataSource.insert(idx, {
            AMOUNT: objGridData[idx].AMOUNT,
            id: objGridData[idx].id,
            PERCENT: objGridData[idx].PERCENT,
            PRODUCT1: objGridData[idx].PRODUCT1,
            PRODUCT2: objGridData[idx].PRODUCT2,
            PRODUCT3: objGridData[idx].PRODUCT3,
            PRODUCT4: objGridData[idx].PRODUCT4,
 
         });
}

Any suggestion would be helpful.

Thanks

Hello, Aditya,

If I understand the inquiry correctly, you would like to create new objects with the same properties as the old objects. If this is the case, why not just add them as they are?

for (var idx = 0; idx < objGridData.length; idx++) {
   grid.dataSource.insert(idx, objGridData[idx]);
}

In case I am misunderstanding the situation and you do need to create new objects for any reason you can use the "for..in" loop and the square brackets notation to describe the new object as well access it, e.g.:

var sampleObject = objGridData[0];
 
for (var idx = 0; idx < objGridData.length; idx++) {
  var newRec = {};
  for(var prop in sampleObject){
    newRec[prop] = objGridData[idx][prop];
  }
  grid.dataSource.insert(idx, newRec);
}

Here is a runnable example using this approach. In case you needed something different than that, please elaborate so I can alter my suggestion accordingly.
