canvas rendering for grid and grouping with virtual scrolling
Add support for canvas rendering to the grid. This will improve performance of the grid considerably.
Part of our testing we have concluded that the current kendo grid is not working well with a number higher than 1000 records as it will become very slow when the user is scrolling the data. In an attempt to fix this the virtual scrolling has been introduced but this breaks the grouping as the number of records displayed do not take into consideration if a group is collapsed or not. Therefore you may end up in a situation where you collapse a group with 100 rows and the grid will not display the next groups as they are not part of the current page (e.g page size 10);
As an example of a canvas based grid see below:
