Fired when the widget is bound to data from its data source.

The event handler function context (available via the this keyword) will be set to the widget instance.

Event Data

e.sender kendo.ui.Grid

The widget instance which fired the event.

Example - subscribe to the "dataBound" event during initialization

<div id="grid"></div>
<script>
$("#grid").kendoGrid({
  columns: [
    { field: "name" },
    { field: "age" }
  ],
  dataSource: [
    { name: "Jane Doe", age: 30 },
    { name: "John Doe", age: 33 }
  ],
  dataBound: function(e) {
/* The result can be observed in the DevTools(F12) console of the browser. */
    console.log("dataBound");
  }
});
</script>

Example - subscribe to the "dataBound" event after initialization

<div id="grid"></div>
<script>
function grid_dataBound(e) {
/* The result can be observed in the DevTools(F12) console of the browser. */
  console.log("dataBound");
}
$("#grid").kendoGrid({
  autoBind: false,
  columns: [
    { field: "name" },
    { field: "age" }
  ],
  dataSource: [
    { name: "Jane Doe", age: 30 },
    { name: "John Doe", age: 33 }
  ]
});
var grid = $("#grid").data("kendoGrid");
grid.bind("dataBound", grid_dataBound);
grid.dataSource.fetch();
</script>

Example - apply custom cell styling in the dataBound event handler

<style>
  .k-grid {
    width: 500px;
  }

  .critical {
    background-color: #fdd;
  }

  .warning {
    background-color: #fda;
  }

  .ok {
    background-color: #ced;
  }

</style>

<div id="grid-databound-dataitems"></div>
<script>
  // sample datasource
  var products = [
    { ID: 1, ProductName: "Foo", UnitsInStock: 9, Discontinued: false },
    { ID: 2, ProductName: "Bar", UnitsInStock: 16, Discontinued: false },
    { ID: 3, ProductName: "Baz", UnitsInStock: 3, Discontinued: true }
  ];

  function getUnitsInStockClass(units) {
    if (units < 5) {
      return "critical";
    } else if (units < 10) {
      return "warning";
    } else {
      return "ok";
    }
  }

  $(document).ready(function () {
    $("#grid-databound-dataitems").kendoGrid({
      dataSource: {
        data: products,
        schema: {
          model: {
            id: "ID",
            fields: {
              ID: { type: "number" },
              ProductName: { },
              UnitsInStock: { type: "number" },
              Discontinued: { type: "boolean" }
            }
          }
        }
      },
      sortable: true,
      columns: [
        { field: "ProductName", title: "Product Name" },
        { field: "UnitsInStock", title:"Units In Stock", width: "120px" },
        { field: "Discontinued", width: "120px" }
      ],
      dataBound: function(e) {
        // get the index of the UnitsInStock cell
        var columns = e.sender.columns;
        var columnIndex = this.wrapper.find(".k-grid-header [data-field=" + "UnitsInStock" + "]").index();

        // iterate the table rows and apply custom cell styling
        var rows = e.sender.tbody.children();
        for (var j = 0; j < rows.length; j++) {
          var row = $(rows[j]);
          var dataItem = e.sender.dataItem(row);
          var units = dataItem.get("UnitsInStock");

          var cell = row.children().eq(columnIndex);
          cell.addClass(getUnitsInStockClass(units));
        }
      }
    });
  });
</script>
