Search Panel

The Grid widget has a built-in feature that enables the users to search through the data. The Search Panel uses filtering under the hood to show only the relevant records in the Grid.

Getting Started

To enable the functionality include the search option to the toolbar configuration.

In addition it is possible to customize which fields to search when a value is entered in the search input.

$("#grid").kendoGrid({
    toolbar: ["search"],
    search: {
        fields: ["ContactTitle"]
    }
    ...
});

Known Limitations

  • When filtering is enabled in the filter textboxes for all Grid columns will be populated with the value entered in the search textbox.
