I'm wondering is it possible to bind a grid to observableArray?

Thank you,

Hi Cipo,


Thanks for using Syncfusion products.


Yes , it is possible to bind grid to observable array. Define Observable array in model and then bind it with grid using knock out then use this observable array to update data to grid. Please refer the below link.

Please let us know if you have any further assistance.

Hi Yogesh,

in the sample you sent me grid is not binded to observableArray.
It is binded to data (JSON):

                        dataSource: data,

which is returnd from ej.DataManager:
var data = ej.DataManager(window.gridData).executeLocal(ej.Query().take(12));

What I need is this:

var myonservableArray = ko.observableArray([

    { name: "Bungle", type: "Bear" },

    { name: "George", type: "Hippo" },

    { name: "Zippy", type: "Unknown" }


                        dataSource: myonservableArray,

Obviously, I've tried that but it won't work for me. Do you have any suggestion?

Thank you,

Any idea when we will be able to bind the grid to a KnockoutJS observableArray?

Hi Robin,


Thanks for your patience.


We usually have an interval of at least three months between releases. The feature implementation would also greatly depend on the factors such as product design, code compatibility and complexity. We will update you when this feature has been implemented.


Please let us know if you have any concerns.
