Persist Checkbox Selection in Child Grids

Environment

Product Grid for Progress® Kendo UI®

Description

How can I persist the selected rows of the child Grids when I change the page of the master Kendo UI Grid?

Solution

  1. Handle the change event of the child Grids.
  2. In the change event handler, use the internal _selectedIds property to save the selected IDs in a global array.
  3. Handle the detailInit event of the master Grids.
  4. In the detailInit event handler, assign the recorded data from the global array to the _selectedIds property of the relevant child Grid.
<div id="example">
    <div id="grid"></div>

    <script>
        var selectedID = [];

        $(document).ready(function() {
            var element = $("#grid").kendoGrid({
                dataSource: {
                    type: "odata",
                    transport: {
                        read: "https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/service/Northwind.svc/Employees"
                    },
                    pageSize: 6,

                        model: {
                            id: "EmployeeID"
                        }
