Hello!

First of all I'm using Kendo UI with AngularJS.

I use schema.parse function to reprocess the results. However, the issue I've is that in parse function I manually overwrite some columns ​with a call from a angular service, which returns promise. The columns which are overwritten via promise are not defined. You can easily imagine that via this example:

- I define two fields: code: {type: 'number'}, name: {type: 'string'}

- Via API call only code is obtained (name is undefined)

- in parse function I call a service which obtains me name (code parameter is passed into it).

 

Example of parse function:

parse: function(data) {
    //data.name = 'test'; // THIS WORKS
    service.call(data.code).then(function(result){
            data.name = result; //DOESN'T WORK
    });
    return data;
}

 

Any possibility to achieve the wanted behaviour? Or some other option to be sure that dependant data can be provided manually (so not via API)?

Hello pixi,

I'm afraid that this will not work. The parse function is synchronous, thus when the asynchronous call completes the execution of the parse function has already completed. The data from the parse function is used to construct the ObservableObject instances returned by the DataSource. Thus, modifying the original data at later stage (which is what happens in the code snippet) will not have effect on the DataSource data.
