The Kendo User Interface Grid is a powerful widget which allows you to visualize and edit data via its table representation. It provides a variety of option about how to present and perform operations over the underlying data, such as paging , sorting , filtering , grouping , and editing , etc. To feed the grid with data, you can supply either local or remote data via the Kendo User interface DataSource component, used as a mediator.

There are two possible way to instantiate a Kendo User Interface grid in your project :

  1. From an empty div element. In this case all the Grid setting are provided in the initialization script statements.
  2. From an existing HTML table element.

In both cases the grid is registered as a jquery plugin, now i am using Kendo User interface Grid from an empty div element.

In this demo you can see how you can easily configure the grid to display your data and perform sorting, paging filtering,  and grouping etc. operations via its built-in functionality.

/examples

The examples Folder accommodates the quick-start demo files.Although all HTML files are static, it is recommended that you can use a web server to open them or directly from the file system. The latter approach breaks all Ajax data request.

/js

The js folder Contains the minified JavaScript files.

/src

The folder src used to hold the source code files, but they are now provided in a separate downloaded package. Access the source code package from the Downloads section of your account. Note that the source code is not available to trial users.

/styles

Consists of the minified CSS files and themes images. The folder also includes the fewer files, which can be passed to the compiler, located on the first-level folder inside styles / folder : styles/ web / and styles / mobile / . Note that the Less files are not available in the trial versions.

/wrappers

Include the server-side wrappers. As it is necessary for the User Interface for ASP.NET MVC (Model View Controller), User Interface for JSP (Java Server Pages) or User Interface for PHP (Personal Home Page) distribution only.

Step 2 : Include the Kendo User Interface JavaScript and CSS files in the head tag of your HTML document. Verify that the common CSS files are registered before the theme CSS files.

Example :

<head runat=”server”>

          <link href = “/kendo.common.min.css” rel = “stylesheet” />

          <link href = “/kendo.default.min.css” rel = “stylesheet” />

The HTML markup tells the Web browser, how to display a Web page’s contain like words and images on a web browser.

HTML

<!DOCTYPE html>

     <html xmlns = “http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml “>

JQUERY

It is a JavaScript library and it’s light-weighted, “write less, do more”. The purpose of using this is to make it much easier to use JavaScript on your web application. It takes a lot of common tasks to accomplish this, that is require many lines of JavaScript code, and wraps them into methods that you can call with a single lines of code. It also simplifies the lots of the complicated things from older Java Scripts concepts, like AJAX call and DOM ( Document Object Model ) manipulation etc.

Note : You can use these demo api (https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/service/Northwind.svc/Customers) to fetch data and bind accordingly in your web application project.

Java Script

$( document ).ready( function () {

     $( ” #grid ” ).kendoGrid( {

          dataSource : {

               type : ” odata “,

               transport : {

                    read : “https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/service/Northwind.svc/Customers “

               },

               pageSize : 20

          },

          height : 550,

          groupable : true,

          sortable : true,

          pageable : {

               refresh : true,

               pageSizes : true,

               buttonCount : 5

          },

          columns : [ {

               template : “

               “style=’background-image: url(../content/web/Customers/#:data.CustomerID#.jpg);’>” + ” # : ContactName # “,

               field : “ContactName “,

               title : “Contact Name “,

               width : 240

          },  {

               field : “ContactTitle “,

               title : “Contact Title “

          },  {

               field : “CompanyName “,

               title : “Company Name “

          },  {

               field : “Country “,

               width : 150

          } ]

     } );

} );

It saves developers lot of work because it can control the layout of multiple web pages all at once place. External style sheets are stored in this files.

CSS

.customer-photo {

          display : inline-block;

          width : 32px;

          height : 32px;

          border-radius : 50%;
