The KendoReact Data Grid enables you to show a menu with quick actions for its columns.
The column menu provides flexible options for high-level customization. For example, the regular sorting and filtering features are represented by individual components which allows you to implement complex scenarios and meet the specific requirements of your project.
To configure the column menu, use the
columnMenu option of the columns.
The following example demonstrates how to utilize the following built-in components while you implement the column menu in the Data Grid:
- Filter - component applying filters to the column
- Sort - component for applying sorting the column
- Group - component for grouping and ungrouping the column
The KendoReact Grid allows you to render a column menu with a tabbed interface.
The below example achieves this implementation by creating a tabbed column menu and wrapping the Grid component with it. In
main.jsx, the Grid is wrapped with a
ColumnMenuContext.Provider where its
value property accepts the following four arguments:
onColumnsChange- handles which columns are displayed
onAutoSize- automatically sizes a column
columnState- accepts a state variable that is initially set to the column array of objects
columns- the initial array of objects of the column values
The ColumnMenu provides the GridColumnMenuCheckboxFilter component, which provides a checkbox list to filter the column data.
The following example demonstrates how to setup the checkbox filtering:
You can integrate custom components in the column menu and pass additional properties to them.
The following example demonstrates how to:
- Render the columns inside the column menu based on an array of the column names and on the column
- Hide columns from the column menu and enable the Grid to update the column menu accordingly.

The filter component of the column menu enables you to customize its user interface (UI) by passing a custom component to the
The following example demonstrates how to customize the UI of the column-menu filter component. To access all demo files, refer to the tree pane of the file.
GridColumnMenuSort components expose the
active static method which checks if filtering and sorting are applied to a specific field. You can use these methods for applying custom CSS classes to the column menu and mark it as active.
The following example demonstrates how to style the column-menu icon when sorting and filtering are applied.
