Setting the NoRecords Template from the Controller


Product Progress® Telerik® UI for ASP.NET Core Grid

How can I set the NoRecords template message to content from the controller?


  1. Use a Kendo UI Template and pass the text by using the ViewData setting of the controller.
  2. Configure the NoRecords TemplateID of the Grid with the ID of the Kendo UI Template.
    .mystyle {
        color: red;
        font-size: 26px;
        .Columns(columns =>
            columns.Bound(p => p.OrderID).Filterable(false);
            columns.Bound(p => p.Freight);
            columns.Bound(p => p.OrderDate).Format("{0:MM/dd/yyyy}");
            columns.Bound(p => p.ShipName);
            columns.Bound(p => p.ShipCity);
        .NoRecords(e => e.TemplateId("myTemplate"))
        .HtmlAttributes(new { style = "height:550px;" })
        .DataSource(dataSource => dataSource
            .Read(read => read.Action("Orders_Read", "Grid"))

<script type="text/x-kendo-template" id="myTemplate">
    <div class="mystyle">@ViewData["NoRecords"]</div>
public class HomeController : Controller
    public IActionResult Index()
        ViewData["NoRecords"] = "Custom No Data Message";
        return View();
