    I'm having problems with certain special characters in my use of the Gird.

    The grid doesn't seem to like strings in the header (maybe elsewhere) that have parentheses ( ) or square brackets [ ]

    I can't give specific content, but suffice it to say a column header like this: Header(XYZ) will break Kendo.js.  Changing to square brackets does the same.


    It this a problem with headers or will parens kack the the grid no matter where they're found?


    I'm hoping that there may be a way out of this that won't require reengineering the client's data source or having to search and replace files (some will have 100s of 1000s of lines).


    I don't have the exact error message at the moment but will post it when I do, if needed.


    Any help would be appreciated.

    here is a screen shot of the error we're getting.


    "RB"  would be in the case of something like HeaderName(RB)


    I can't provide sample data or source code.

    Hello Charles,

    I tried to replicate the described behavior, however, I was not able to. You can see the sample I used for testing in the dojo below. Give it a try and let me know if I am missing something.

    If would be great if you can modify the sample in a way that the issue is replicated and send it back. This will enable us to examine the behavior locally and look for its cause.
