I have a custom create and a custom destroy method in use. The create simply return a custom object that mirrors the schema of the grid with preset values. The destroy does two things, first it deletes the entry via rest and then it removes the row.

When I reload I can create a new entry and everything. When I delete an entry and try to add a new one i get the following error:

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'call' of undefined kendo.all.js:7386
(anonymous function)                                                                    kendo.all.js:7386

b.event.dispatch                                                                           jquery_1.9.1.min.js:4

The create function is similar to the following
create: function (options) {
                var createNewRow = {
                    unit: { Name: ""},
                    number: {},
                    Id: { Name: ""},
                    Quantity: 1
                // options.success(options);

And the delete pretty much looks like this
function deleteProduct(e){
        var grid                  = $("#grid").data("kendoGrid"),
              currentRow            = $(e.currentTarget).closest("tr"),
              currentRowData        = this.dataItem(currentRow);


I had to remove some CRM dependant parts

Hi Stefan,

I am not sure I understand what is the expected behavior. Basically, the create method should notify the DataSource what values were saved on the server and what ID was assigned to the item. A new, empty row is automatically created once the Add new record button is pressed. In case you wish to add a pre-populated items, then I would suggest checking this example. The destroy method does more or less the same - notifies the DataSource which item was deleted and was the operation successfully executed on the server. The row is automatically removed once the delete button is pressed or the removeRow method executed, so doing this and/or calling the DataSource's read method in the transport.destroy is not necessary. I would recommend using the following approach: 
  • Make a request to the server
  • Once the request's success event is triggered, get the response and pass it to the success method of the options argument of the CRUD method

For example: 
destroy: function (options) {
    url: "MyService/Destroy",
    data: ... //
    success: function(result) {
    error: function(result) {
