Column Media

The Kendo UI Grid provides the built-in functionality to condtionally make a column visible, based on the width of the Browser window.

  • The hidden option takes precedence over media.
  • The media option cannot be used with minScreenWidth at the same time.


Set the media property of the column to a valid string.

    <div id="grid"></div>
          columns: [
              { field: "id", width: 250, media: "(min-width: 576px)" },
              { field: "age", width: 250, media: "sm" },
              { field: "city", width: 250, media: "(max-width: 576px)" },
              { field: "name", width: 250 }
          dataSource: [
              { id: 1, name: "Jane Doe", age: 31, city: "Boston" },
              { id: 2, name: "John Doe", age: 55, city: "New York" }
