Grid JSP Tag Overview

The Grid JSP tag is a server-side wrapper for the Kendo UI Grid widget.

Getting Started


Below are listed the steps for you to follow when configuring the Kendo UI Grid for binding to data passed as a model attribute in Spring MVC.

Step 1 Make sure you followed all the steps from the introductory article on Telerik UI for JSP.

Step 2 Create a new action method and pass the Products table to the View.

    @RequestMapping(value = "/local-data", method = RequestMethod.GET)
    public String index(Locale locale, Model model) {
        model.addAttribute("products", product.getList());

        return "web/grid/local-data";

Step 3 Add the Kendo UI taglib mapping to the page.

    <%@taglib prefix="kendo" uri=""%>

Step 4 Add a server-bound Grid.

    <kendo:grid name="productGrid" pageable="true">
            <kendo:grid-column title="Product Name" field="productName" />
            <kendo:grid-column title="Unit Price" field="unitPrice" format="{0:c}" />
            <kendo:grid-column title="Units In Stock" field="unitsInStock" />
        <kendo:dataSource data="${products}" pageSize="10"/>
        <kendo:grid-pageable input="true" numeric="false" />

Event Handling

Subscribe to Events

You can subscribe to all events exposed by Kendo UI Grid by the handler name.

<kendo:grid name="productGrid" dataBound="productGrid_dataBound" change="productGrid_change">
    <kendo:dataSource data="${data}" pageSize="10"/>

function productGrid_dataBound() {
    //Handle the dataBound event

function productGrid_change() {
    //Handle the change event


Existing Instances

You are able to reference an existing Grid instance via the Once a reference is established, you are able to use the Grid API to control its behavior.

//Put this after your Kendo Grid tag declaration
$(function() {
    // Notice that the name attribute of the grid is used to get its client-side instance
    var grid = $("#productGrid").data("kendoGrid");
