Hi,

Following is my code which tries to create kendo grid based on table data. Inside the kendo grid section, how can I add columns width? Also, sorting on currency columns (InvoiceTotal, CreditAmount, and DueAmount) are not sorting as numbers but it is sorting as string. Can someone help me please. i made sure that these fields inside InvoiceHeaderInfo class are of type decimal.

 

@model  IEnumerable<KendoUIApp2.Models.InvoiceHeaderInfo>
@{
    ViewBag.Title = "Index";
}
@{
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function AlertMsg(e) {
            alert(e);
            //alert($("#InvoiceGrid").data.height);
            return false;
        }
        $(function () {
            $("#InvcList").kendoGrid({
                
                toolbar:["excel","pdf"],
                excel:{allpages:true},
                pdf: {
                    allPages: true,
                    avoidLinks: true,
                    paperSize: "A4",
                    margin: { top: "2cm", left: "1cm", right: "1cm", bottom: "1cm" },
                    landscape: true,
                    repeatHeaders: true,
                    template: $("#page-template").html(),
                    scale: 0.8
                },
                sortable: true,
                pageable: true,
                dataSource: { pageSize: 5, name:"InvoiceGrid"},

 

                databound: function (e) {
                    $(".View-Link").click(function (e) {
                        e.preventDefault();
                        alert('hi');
                        alert($(this).id);
                    })

                }
            });
            
        });
       // alert($("#InvcList").kendoGrid().columns(0).name);
    </script>


}

Hello Guru,

In order to set column widths, add width styles to <col> elements, as shown in this demo:

http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/grid/from-table

The following documentation section provides more information about column widths:

http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/controls/data-management/grid/appearance#columns

To sort numeric data, set a data-type to the respective <th> element, as explained in the documentation:

http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/controls/data-management/grid/overview

(scroll down to the "From an HTML Table" section)

Dimo
