When playing with kendo-ui datasource-based-widgets, you need to realize that all the loop/processing/rendering will occur client side. So, you cannot add an AjaxLink to each "rowItem" as you would do with standard wicket containers/listitems.
You have 2 options :
- use a custom template (see #newTemplate), supply an ajax-behavior callback url (you have to add it to the holding component) followed by the row id.
- use the build-in onChange event which will occurs as soon as an item is clicked/selected. You just have to pass this option: new Options("selectable", Options.asString("single"))
