jQuery Grid Initialization from Table

Loading Demo...
Sample service


The Kendo UI for jQuery Grid enables you to initialize it from an existing table element. The benefits from this approach are improved SEO and a guarantee that the data will be visible even if JavaScript is disabled. When creating the Grid from an existing table, the column settings can be defined with HTML attributes.

This demo showcases how to initialize the Grid from an existing HTML table element and enable its sorting functionality.

This Grid example is part of a unique collection of hundreds of jQuery demos, with which you can see all Kendo UI for jQuery components and their features in action. View the source code of the demos from the library or directly adapt, and edit them and their theme appearance in Kendo UI for jQuery Dojo or ThemeBuilder.
