When a row is selected in a Kendo UI Grid the change
event of the API is triggered; you can read more about in our documentation here
. To see this in action, take a look at the Events demo in the samples section of our website here
Once a selection has been made, you can get the dataItem that corresponds to the selected row like this:
grid = $(
selectedItem = grid.dataItem(grid.select());
And finally, you can change the properties of the dataItem by using the set method or changing them directly, depending on your scenario:
Take a look at this sample
//changes will be reflected inmediatly in the grid due to data binding being triggered
//changes won't be reflected in the grid
in the Kendo UI Dojo demonstrating the first approach.
I hope this helps!
