Description

Solution

  1. To continue using a row template, you could bind a style within the template to make it show and hide as well as the columns' visibility changes
    <script id="template" type="text/x-kendo-template">
        # var columns = $("\\#grid").data("kendoGrid").columns #    
        <tr data-uid="#= uid #">
            <td style="display:#= columns[0].hidden ? 'none': '' #"> #= data[columns[0].field] #</td>
            <td style="display:#= columns[1].hidden ? 'none': '' #"> #= data[columns[1].field] # </td>
            <td style="display:#= columns[2].hidden ? 'none': '' #"> #= data[columns[2].field] # </td>
        </tr>
    </script>
    <div id="grid" style="width: 70%; margin: 0 auto;"></div>
    <script src="https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/content/shared/js/people.js"></script>
    <script id="template" type="text/x-kendo-template">
    # var columns = $("\\#grid").data("kendoGrid").columns #     
    <tr data-uid="#= uid #">
        <td style="display:#= columns[0].hidden ? 'none': '' #"> #= data[columns[0].field] #</td>
        <td style="display:#= columns[1].hidden ? 'none': '' #"> #= data[columns[1].field] # </td>
        <td style="display:#= columns[2].hidden ? 'none': '' #"> #= data[columns[2].field] # </td>
      </tr>
    </script>
    <script>
      var ds = new kendo.data.DataSource({
        data: createRandomData(50),
        schema: {
          model: {
            fields: {
              FirstName: { type: "string" },
              LastName: { type: "string" },
              City: { type: "string" },
              Title: { type: "string" },
              Age: { type: "number" }
            }
          }
        },
        pageSize: 10
      });

      $(document).ready(function() {
        $("#grid").kendoGrid({
          dataSource: ds,
          columnMenu:true,
          height: 450,
          sortable: true,
          reorderable: true,
          resizable: true,
          pageable: true,
          rowTemplate: kendo.template($("#template").html()),
          columns: ["FirstName", "Title", "Age"]
        });
      });
    </script>
