I´m trying to implement a paging mechanism like this:

http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/grid/virtualization-remote-data

using json data that has a hierarchical structure like this:

{
   "issue_list":[
      {
         "issue":{
            "href":"issue/1",
            "subject":"some text",
            "body":"some more text"
         }
      },
      {
         "issue":{
            "href":"issue/2",
            "subject":"some other text",
            "body":"some more other text"
         }
      }
   ]
}

 

Is this possible to do if I specify the structure in the schema in some way? 

This post: 

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14731949/what-must-my-kendo-datasource-schema-look-like

implies that the data structure can not be hierarchical? Is this still true?

Hello Karin,

 

If you want to point the dataSource to the object that is holding the data that you want to display you need to use the schema.data configuration property. It is documented here:

 

http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/data/datasource#configuration-schema.data
