Starting with R2 2022, the Kendo UI team officially drops the support for AngularJS 1.x through Kendo UI for jQuery. The AngularJS related files and functionality are removed from the bundles and distribution in R3 SP1 2023. The last version that contains the files is R3 2023.


How can I use AngularJS directives to bind the Kendo UI Grid for jQuery to Telerik Backend Services?


The following example demonstrates how to bind the Grid to the Kinvey Backend Services in an AngularJS application.

The example loads Kendo UI 2023.3.1010 version.

<script src=""></script>
<script src=""></script>

<div id="example" ng-app="KendoDemos">
    <div ng-controller="MyCtrl" data-ng-init="init()">
        <!-- Use grid directive with scope options -->
        <kendo-grid options="gridOptions"></kendo-grid>

<!-- Kinvey JS SDK (HTML, PhoneGap, etc.) -->
<script src=""></script>

<!-- Kinvey Kendo UI Data Source -->
<script src=""></script>
    // configure API key
        appKey: 'kid_SJyRpx96G',
        appSecret: 'a88466f87e434ca4a1a0194e33d3168d'

    angular.module("KendoDemos", ["kendo.directives"])
        .controller('MyCtrl', ["$scope", MyCtrl]);

    function MyCtrl($scope) {
        $scope.init = function() {
            if (!Kinvey.User.getActiveUser()) {
                var that = this;
                    .then(function() {
                    .catch(function(error) {
            } else {

        // declare dataSource bound to backend
        $scope.dataSource = new{
            type: "kinvey",
            transport: {
                typeName: "products"
            schema: {
                model: {
                    id: "_id",
                    fields: {
                        UnitPrice: {
                            type: "number"
                        UnitsInStock: {
                            type: "number"
                        Discontinued: {
                            type: "boolean"
            pageSize: 20,
            serverSorting: true,
            serverPaging: true,
            error: function(err) {

        $scope.gridOptions = {
            autoBind: false,
            dataSource: $scope.dataSource,
            height: 430,
            sortable: true,
            pageable: true,
            columns: [{
                field: "ProductName",
                title: "Product Name"
            }, {
                field: "UnitPrice",
                title: "Unit Price",
                width: 220
            }, {
                field: "UnitsInStock",
                title: "Units In Stock",
                width: 220
            }, {
                field: "Discontinued",
                title: "Discontinued",
                width: 220
