Is it possible to have a tooltip appear in a grid's header cell? If so, how?
Also, is it possible to use templates for the header row of a grid?

Hi Francois,

A tooltip in Kendo UI grid's header cell is not available out of the box, but you could achieve it using custom code. 

Regarding the template in a grid's header row - currently such functionality is not supported. You could customize the appearance of the header via custom code.

For convenience, here is a very simple jsFiddle, which illustrates the aforementioned approaches in action.

I used the Grid's dataBound event and looped through the column headers, like so:

01.$('#grid').kendoGrid({
02.    dataSource: myDataSource,
03.    columns: [ ... ],
04.    dataBound: function () {
05.        var grid = $('#grid').data('kendoGrid');
06.        $(grid.thead.find('th')).each(function ()
07.        {
08.            $(this).prop('title', $(this).data('title'));
09.            // could also use $(this).data('field')
10.        }
11.    }
12.});

Hello guys,

At this point there is a tooltip widget available which can be used with Kendo UI Grid. For your convenience here is a simple example.
