I am building a point of sale system using Kendo UI. The POS page will have a header section and then a grid to handle sale line items. The user needs to be able to enter lines items (up to 100 or more in a sale) very quickly. Ideally I don't want to force the user to have to reach for the mouse and click the  Add New Record button each time he/she wants to enter a new line item (row) in the grid. This is going to be too slow and awkward. What I would really like is for the grid to automatically start a new row as soon as the user enters a value in the last column of the last row in the grid and moves off the column. I don't see anyway to have the Kendo grid do this. Is it possible?

Hello Randy,

The behavior you describe is possible to implement using the Kendo UI Grid after some customization.

In order to get a better idea of how something similar can be implemented, I encourage you to take a look at the following sample in the documentation.

I hope this helps!
