I'm not the most adept with Javascript or Kendo, so this may be a bug, or it might just be my noobism showing.

I have a Kendo Grid created from the MVC stuff in the fluent library.   It's named "DocumentsGrid". It works fine.  No complaints, until I created a Custom Command on the grid that executes a javascript function named showRevisions.

<div id="RevisionWindow"></div>
  
<script language="javascript">
    function showRevisions(e) {
        var documentId = 1234;
          
        var wnd = $("#RevisionWindow").kendoWindow({
            content: "somecrazyurl?documentId=" + documentId ,
            title: "Revisions for Document " + documentId,
            width: "750px",
            height: "480px",
            modal: true,
            actions: ["Close"]
        }).data("kendoWindow");
                  
        wnd.center().open();
    }
</script>

This all executes fine.   Unfortunately, however, sometime after this function has completed, any javascript that relies on $("#DocumentsGrid").data("kendoGrid").dataSource fails.  I debugged through the code and the exact line of code where $("#DocumentsGrid").data("kendoGrid").dataSource begins returning null is in the jquery.js library, approximately line  8324:

complete(status, statusText, responses, responseHeaders);

The consequence of this is that I'm unable to do any paging or advanced manipulation of data in javascript once the window has been opened because most of the attributes on the DocumentsGrid object don't appear to be there anymore. 

Is this a bug in jquery, kendo, or am I expected to reconstruct the grid every time I after I manipulate windows?

Thanks,

Jason
