        • Maintain dirty indicator on batch edit grids

          Currently if you add a row to a grid in batch edit mode any rows that have already been edited will lose their dirty flag indicator. I would like for Kendo to handle maintaining the dirty flag for these rows. If there is a performance concern with adding this functionality, then maybe there could be a setting to turn it on or off.

            A possible option might be to utilize the solution presented in this help topic:
            http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/web/grid/how-to/Editing/preserve-the-dirty-indicator-in-incell-editing-and-client-operations

            Alternatively, if you rely heavily on spreadsheet-like batch editing capabilities combined with row insertion, you may contemplate using our new spreadsheet widget for this type of UI presentation and interaction:

            • Change Style of deleted row rather than removing it, Grid Batch Editing

              Currently we use batch editing in the Grid control. The idea of batch editing is all changes are retained client side until the user presses the save button.

              When editing a cell a red dirty indicator is placed on the cell. This gives the user an indication that there are unsaved changes. however, when deleting a row, the row just goes away. There is no indication the user must still save.

              I would like to see rather than the record immediately removed a class applied to the row so we can apply some style like a strikethrough or red background…

                • Right Side Column Freeze in Kendo Grid should also be there rather than only in LHS

                  There is an option to freeze the left most column of the Kendo Grid by setting the lockable property.
                  But this is limited to the Left Hand Side columns only and there are no ways suggested to freeze the Right Most columns.

                  • Add posibility to jump (scroll) to specific row when using virtual grid

                    When using Grid with virtual scrollbar there is no possibilty to go to sepecific row programaticly. Especially for row that are not yet loaded.

                    I have managed to move the scrolbar using

                    grid.virtualScrollable.verticalScrollbar.scrollTop(scrollRow[0].offsetTop + pageOffset * pageIndex);

                    however the calcualtion of the location of the row is impossible when rows have dynamic height.

                        It would be nice to have the possiblity to toggle edit mode on and off for the Grid.

                          We will monitor the interest in your proposition. For now you may consider disabling the editing option in each fo the rows on demand programmatically.

                        • bool

                          Allow customisation of the bool filter in grids. I.E. implement the UI property that works for other non-checked columns. The current filter is too wide, does not allow fontawesome characters, etc.

                          • Add the ability for Kendo Grid's "colum.values" option to accept either an array of column values, or a function that returns the array

                            Currently, Kendo Grid has a "column.values" option that accepts an array of key/value pairs. These values are used to render human-readable text for fields that are foreign keys. Depending on how the grid is used, this array of "available values" could be dynamic. Currently, there is no way to update these arrays without calling "setOptions" manually with the new, correct column definitions.

                            To fix this, Kendo Grid should track changes to the "column.value" array (via some sort of observable or something - I'm not sure exactly how things work under the hood). Alternatively, "column.values" could also accept a function. This…

                            • More configuration options for grid command buttons

                              Personally, I much prefer image buttons over text buttons in the grid just to keep bulk down especially when you have a wide grid or a number of custom command buttons with long text.

                              To do this at present requires some fancy css styling in the grid databound event.

                              I would like to see more configuration options for grid commands to allow for ....

                              - Built-in commands (Edit, Delete, etc) and custom commands to be image only
                              - Built-in commands and custom commands to have a "tooltip" option

                                Right now there are two options for sorting, single and multi-column. We would very much like to use the multisort version, however our users fail to understand the functionality. We suggest a new setting, "ctrl-multisort":

                                Single-sort when clicking and multi-sort when ctrl-clicking, similair to most desktop grid controls.

                                • Feature to rank groups (sort them relative to each other) by an aggregate value

                                  My users ask for this in almost every application. When a grid is grouped, the users want to see the groups in an order that indicates some ranking by an aggregate value. For example, If SALES-DETAIL table is grouped by SALESPERSON, the default alphabetic order of the groups might be AMELIA, BARBARA, CARLOS, DAVID, HARRY, THOMAS, ZELDA. But users want to see the groupings in descending order by the salesperson's TotalSales, which might be HARRY, ZELDA, AMELIA, THOMAS...etc. So we need a way to specify a custom-group-sortorder. And to be perfectly clear, that is the sequence of groups with respect…

                                  • When scrolling using Grid Virtualization, Queries are executed twice

                                    When scrolling data in a grid using the virtualization scrolling option, the query to fetch the next section of data will occur twice. It does not happen for every query, but it does happen all the time regardless of scrolling fast or slow.

                                    • Add the ability to display the Show/Hide Column menu by right clicking the Column Header

                                      Add the ability to display the Show/Hide Column menu by right clicking the Column Header instead of going through the "Column Menu".

                                      It would also be nice if you could access the Filter directly instead of going through the "Column Menu"

                                      The current Column Menu unnecessarily hides functionality in a menu that should be more easily accessible.

                                        We’re not sure how much right-click access to the column chooser improves discoverability or usability of this feature. We’ll wait for more feedback and comments. Thanks for sharing the idea!

                                      • grid change event fires on "select" rather than on "change"

                                        When I bind a change event to the grid it will fire each time I click on the row, even if it is the same row. So the selected row is not actually changing, but the event keeps firing anyways. The same thing happens if I programmatically select the row using the select method.

                                        I would rather the change event only fire when when the selection has actually changed rather than on every re-selection.

                                        Otherwise, you might as well call the event "onSelect" rather than "change".

                                        For extra points, it would be cool if the event received a reference to…

                                        • custom date format in (editable) grid column

                                          When you configure a grid date-column with a custom format, the value configured in 'format' is parsed using JSON.parse. This requires the use of double quotes for both keys and values.

                                          var a = "{0:dd/MMMM/yyyy}"; // example from docs
                                          JSON.parse(a); // SyntaxError: JSON.parse: expected property name or '}'

                                          var b = '{"0":"dd-MM-yyyy"}';
                                          JSON.parse(b); // jey!

                                          However, if you use the latter, the generated template goes fubar with the message:

                                          "Invalid template:' ... <td>${kendo.format("{"0":"dd-MM-yyyy"\}",theDataField)}</td> ... "

                                          This makes sense when you look at the quote mismatch..
