Resize the Grid by Dragging and Apply the New Size

The example below demonstrates how to resize the Kendo UI Grid by dragging its bottom-right corner.

Example
    <style>
        html {
            font: 13px sans-serif;
        }
      .grid-wrap {
        position: relative;
        padding-bottom: 2px;
      }
      .grid-wrap .k-overlay {
        position: absolute;
        opacity: 0;
        z-index: 1;
      }
      .grid-wrap .k-resize-se {
        position: absolute;
        z-index: 2;
        bottom: 6px;
        right: 6px;
      }
      .grid-wrap > .k-grid {
        height: 300px;
      }
    </style>
    <p>Drag the handle at the bottom-right Grid corner to resize the widget and apply a new page size.</p>
    <div class="grid-wrap">
      <div id="grid1" class="kendogrid"></div>
    </div>

  <script>

    var minGridWidth = 150;
    var minGridHeight = 100;

    function averageRowHeight(table) {
        var rowCount = table.find("tr").length;
        if (rowCount > 0) {
            return table.height() / table.find("tr").length;
        } else {
            var columnCount = table.find("col").length;
            table.children("tbody").append("<tr><td colspan='" + columnCount + "'>&nbsp;</td></tr>");
            return table.height();
        }
    }

    function changePageSize(grid) {
