I am using kendo spreadsheet and all my data is returning json values.
Question can i format the grid as far as rename headers or position my data where I want to. Not much info on how when it is dynamically coming from the server.
  $("#spreadsheet").kendoSpreadsheet({
      //          columns: 50,
      //          rows: 100,
      //          toolbar: true,
      //          sheetsbar: true,
      //          sheets: [{
      //              name: "Summary",
      //                    mergedCells: [
      //         // "A1:D1"  // Sheet Cell Placement , "C4:G4", "O4:R4", "A13:B13", "A16:B16"
      //                    ],
      //             rows: [{
      //          height: 30,
      //          cells: [{
      //            value: "label", background: "rgb(144,164,174)", textAlign: "center",
      //                      color: "white", fontSize: 18
      //          },
      //          ],
      //      }, 
      //      {
      //               index: 3,
      //               cells: [
      //                  {   index: 2, value: "Mean Total Returns(net)", fontSize: 15, textAlign: "center"}
      //                ],
                  
      //          },
      //        {
      //               index: 3,
      //               cells: [
      //                  {   index: 14, value: "Mean Asset Allocation", fontSize: 15, textAlign: "center"}
      //                ],
                  
      //        }],
                 
      //            dataSource:  dataSource, 
      //              columns: [
      //                  { width: 100 },
      //                  { width: 415 },
      //                  { width: 145 },

Your processing page just needs to produce jsonp.  The example above is hard coded but you can generate the same rendered code through your server side code.

Where you see the datasource
var dataSource = new kendo.data.DataSource({
                transport: {
                    read:  {
                        url: crudServiceBaseUrl + "/Products",
                        dataType: "jsonp"
                    },
                    update: {
                        url: crudServiceBaseUrl + "/Products/Update",
                        dataType: "jsonp"
                    },
                    destroy: {
                        url: crudServiceBaseUrl + "/Products/Destroy",
                        dataType: "jsonp"
                    },
                    create: {
                        url: crudServiceBaseUrl + "/Products/Create",
                        dataType: "jsonp"
                    },
                    parameterMap: function(options, operation) {
                        if (operation !== "read" && options.models) {
                            return {models: kendo.stringify(options.models)};
                        }
                    }
                },

Open in new window

it is the urls like Products where you produce your dynamic content.

To pass variables, use jquery to past post/get and data
http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/data/datasource#methods-data
 data: [
    { name: "Jane Doe" },
    { name: "John Doe" }
  ]

Open in new window


They do have examples for .net https://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-mvc/spreadsheet/datasource

Your dynamic data comes from the processing page in that case
