Hi all.

I'm looking for a way to alter the "Scrollable" setting via jQuery.

Basically, I want to give the user the ability to toggle the grid between a fixed size (say 200px height with scrolling) and a un-set height, allowing the grid to show all rows without scrolling.

I have this set in the grid definition:

.Scrollable(s => s.Enabled(true).Virtual(true))

which yields the first requirement - a scrollable grid of fixed height.

When the user clicks a "toggle" button, I'd like to swap the s.Enabled(true) to s.Enabled(false) and back and forth as they click the toggle button.

Is there any way to do this?

Hi Jeff,

You can use the setOptions method of the Grid to enable/disable the virtual scrolling:

<input type="button" value="Toggle Scrollable" onclick="toggleScrollable()" />

  function toggleScrollable() {
    //get a reference to the Grid (replace "grid" with the actual name of the Grid)
    var grid = $("#grid").data("kendoGrid");
    //save the Grid's options
    var options = grid.getOptions();
    //toggle the virtual option
    options.scrollable.virtual = !options.scrollable.virtual;

    //set the modified options back to the Grid

Have in mind though that the setOptions method re-initializes the Grid.
