This is my take on working with Kendo Grid in a Vue 3 project. While I have not explored the grid functionality to the nth degree, these are some things I like about the grid, some difficulties I had implementing it, and some workarounds and quirks I have discovered. Specifically, I will be referring to the Vue implementation of Kendo Grid and the Native Components. This is not to be confused with the Kendo UI for Vue Wrappers.

Kendo Grid is a very robust tool for displaying data in table format. Out-of-the-box features include sorting, filtering, and pagination. Simply defining the column schema with a few config options will have the grid set up quickly. A few features that require more coding and configuration are column collapsing, adding a toolbar, displaying aggregated fields, using custom cell components, implementing column groups, and exporting grid data to a file.

I’ve spent the past 15 years of my career working as a web developer. Over those years, I’ve learned and created various shortcuts to help ease development. So, I figured I’d share them with you. This short write up lists some of the JavaScript tips and tricks that I’ve picked up during my career.

The first snippet I’ll cover is one I’ve only used in a very specific, unique circumstance. It may not be relevant to all of you, but I wanted to share for the few it would apply to. The rest are snippets I use on nearly a daily basis. No matter your situation or requirements, you should be able to find at least one that you can adopt.
