    Hi, and thanks for the great blog!

    I'm considering using Kendo for a new project I'll be working on which will present some data in a grid. The data can be edited and changes will be posted back to server on change. In one of the blog posts, I read that:

    "And something like the Kendo UI DataSource will eventually help track changes to objects locally and persist those changes to the server later."

    Are you planning any built in support for that in DataSource/an extension to DataSource? Or will we need to take care of it ourselves, by tracking if the connection is on-/offline, and in case of offline track the change() event of DataSource and save changes to an array for later use when connection becomes available.

    Thanks!

    /Jay

    Bump.

    So, is the sync option in latest beta 2 pretty much the solution to this?

    Hello guys,

    You can cast your vote for such Kendo UI DataSource feature in this User Voice item.

    In the meantime if the manual sync method execution works for your scenario, feel free to make use of it.

    Kind regards,
