Print a Kendo UI grid with pagination

So I wanted to print a page that has a Kendo ui grid with pagination activated, but I didn’t want to remove the pagination on the page.

I found those two posts that helped me

And I ended with this

(function () {

var pageSize = 0;
 var beforePrint = function () {

 // remove paging on grid
 if ($(".k-grid").length > 0) {
 var dataSource = $(".k-grid").data("kendoGrid").dataSource;
 pageSize = dataSource.options.pageSize; // save the current page size
if(pageSize !== undefined){
 dataSource.pageSize(; // set the size to the number of items


var afterPrint = function () {

// set paging back
 if ($(".k-grid").length > 0 && pageSize > 0) {
 var dataSource = $(".k-grid").data("kendoGrid").dataSource;

// chrome
 if (window.matchMedia) {
 var mediaQueryList = window.matchMedia('print');
 mediaQueryList.addListener(function (mql) {
 if (mql.matches) {
 } else {

// FF & IE
 window.onbeforeprint = beforePrint;
 window.onafterprint = afterPrint;


Hope it helps someone

    Kendo UI and bootstrap doesn’t have the same purpose
    Kendo UI is really great because it comes with .NET wrappers that make the development quicker

    Actually I’m using both bootstrap and Kendo UI in my applications : they are working great together.

    I’m using bootstrap for the pages layout and kendo for the controls : grid, datepickers, charts, …
