    I'm having problems getting the details template template to populate from the same kendo data source as the grid.  I'm loading the data source for the grid like this:

    gridDatasource = new kendo.data.DataSource{



          read: function(options)



              url: "../services/foo.asmx/GetData",

              datatype: "json",

              success: function(result){ options.success(result) }






    The grid populates fine but the detail template will not load.  This is how I'm trying to call the detailInit(e)

    function detailInit(e) {

        var detailRow = e.detailRow;

            animation: { open: { effects: "fadeIn" } }

            dataSource: kdsRenewalOpsDetails,
            scrollable: false,
                { field: "RefNo", title: "Account Ref No" },
                { field: "NamedInsured", title: "Named Insured" },
                { field: "Address", title: "Address" },
                { field: "RenewalOpsComments", title: "Comments" }


    function getRenewalOpsDetails(data)
        kdsRenewalOpsDetails = new kendo.data.DataSource
                data: data,
                            Address: { type: "string" },
                            NamedInsured: { type: "string" },
                            RefNo: { type: "string" },
                            RenewalOpsComments: { type: "string", editable: true },
                            RenewalOpsCommentsTextID: { type: "number" },
                            StateCode: { type: "string" }


    When debugging inside of chrome I can see that there is data inside of e.data, but the details grid will not populate.  Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    Hello, Daniel,

    Thank you for the provided code.

    After inspecting it I can suggest checking the format of the data which passed to the child dataSource. In some cases even if a data is passed, if it is not in the expected former the Grill will not pass it.

    Also, we recommend using classes for the child items, as otherwise multiple elements with the same ID will be created which is not recommended:


    If the issue still occurs please provide a fully runnable example and I will gladly investigate it.
