Generated Content Model

The User Content Model above illustrates how easy it is to get a grid up-and-running by adding only a few elements and attributes. The Generated Content Model shows what is actually rendered into the DOM from those configuration settings.

The generated source is important to understand if you want to customize the styling of the grid beyond choosing a prebuilt theme. See the guide on styling the grid for further information on customizing your grid's display.
