Initialize the Grid

The example below demonstrates how to use the activate event when initializing the Grid within the Window so as it is resized according to the dimensions of its container.

Important

In addition to the Kendo UI Window, this example can be applied to the TabStrip and PanelBar widgets, which, too, act as hidden containers for the Grid.

Example
    <body>
      <button id="openBtn">Open</button>
      <div id="wnd">
        <div id="grid"></div>
      </div>
      <script src="https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/content/shared/js/products.js"></script>
      <script>
        var wnd = $("#wnd").kendoWindow({
          height: 400,
          width: 600,
          visible: false
        }).data("kendoWindow");

        var grid = $("#grid").kendoGrid({
            dataSource: {
              data: products,
              pageSize: 5
          },
          height: 200,
          scrollable: true,
          columns: [
              "ProductName",
              { field: "UnitPrice", title: "Unit Price", format: "{0:c}", width: "130px" },
              { field: "UnitsInStock", title: "Units In Stock", width: "130px" },
              { field: "Discontinued", width: "130px" }
            ]
          }).data("kendoGrid");

          //apply the activate event, which is thrown only after the animation is played out
          wnd.one("activate", function() {
                grid.resize();
          });

          $("#openBtn").click(function(e) {
                wnd.open();
          });
        </script>
    </body>
