Hi Victor, while I appreciate your response I don't think we are talking about the same thing.
Following the example you gave me, lets say we edit Nancy's order. The backend will also update an unknown # of other customer orders (lets say Janet, Margaret, and Steven.) I now need to retrieve/refresh all children grid or the data displayed may be different than what is in the backend, it is also possible that users have some of the grids open so I'd like to refresh the data without collapsing the grids.
Is this possible with Kendo without resorting to hacky techniques?
