    I have a tabstrip that contains several tabs, each of which contains a grid. When the page loads and I go to the Messages tab, the grid displays the data correctly. But there is no scrollbar, even though there are many pages of data (see Initial.png).

    Once I click on any page number, the scrollbar appears (see AfterPaging.png). After that, it works just fine. But I cannot get the scrollbar to appear at the beginning.

    My tab strip looks like this:

    <div id="TabsContainer">
        <div class="k-content" style="margin-top: 10px;">
                    .Animation(animation => animation.Enable(false))
                    .HtmlAttributes(new { @class = "TabStripContents MinerTabStripContents" })
                    .Items(tabstrip =>
                        tabstrip.Add().Text("Accounts (0)")
                            .LinkHtmlAttributes(new { id = "SummaryTab" })
                        tabstrip.Add().Text("Errors (0)")
                            .LinkHtmlAttributes(new { id = "ErrorsTab" })
                        tabstrip.Add().Text("Parameters (0)")
                            .LinkHtmlAttributes(new { id = "ParametersTab" })
                        tabstrip.Add().Text("Messages (0)")
                            .LinkHtmlAttributes(new { id = "MessagesTab" })
                        tabstrip.Add().Text("Logs (0)")
                            .LinkHtmlAttributes(new { id = "LogsTab" })


    The Messages tab strip is this:

            .TableHtmlAttributes(new { @class = "grid-with-padding", style = "width: 100%; border: solid 1px gray;" })
            .Columns(columns =>
                columns.Bound(a => a.MessageDate).Width(150).Title("Date").Format("{0:MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm tt}");
                columns.Bound(a => a.AccountID).Width(100).Title("Account ID");
                columns.Bound(a => a.Step).Width(300);
                columns.Bound(a => a.ResultMessage).Width(300).Title("Text");
            .Scrollable(scroll => scroll.Virtual(true))
            .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
                .Read(read => read.Action("ReadMessages", "Miner").Data("GetMinerProcessDataAndSendAntiForgery"))
            .Events(ev => ev.DataBound("OnMessagesDataBound"))
            .HtmlAttributes(new { @class = "TabContents MinerTabContents" })
            .NoRecords("There are no messages for this miner process")


    The OnMessageDataBound function is empty, but the problem still happens.

    I set the height of the MessagesGrid in  $(document).ready(), but the problem happens even if I comment that out.

    Any  ideas on what I can do to make the scroll bar appear?

    Hello Sam,

    Note that using paging and virtual scrolling at the same time will likely result in unexpected behavior. If you would like to use paging for the Grid you need to ensure that virtual scrolling is disabled.

    Replace your scrollable configuration with the one from the code snippet below and let me know how the behavior changes.
