jQuery Grid Sizing

Loading Demo...
Sample service


The Kendo UI for jQuery Grid enables you to reduce its size to achieve better visibility on smaller devices or to render as much data as possible. To render the Grid in its compact appearance, change the value of the size configuration to small. The compact Grid will utilize the available space by setting smaller paddings in its cells.

The size setting also affects the inner components such as the Toolbar, Pager, and editors such as the TextBox, NumericTextBox, and more. To follow the overall styling of the Grid, their elements will have smaller paddings as well.

This example illustrates how to size the Grid through a direct side-by-side comparison between the two setups.

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.
