All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

I have to show two types of gridOptions without using two grid’s trying to change the gridOptions dynamically not working(one time working).

working example http://plnkr.co/edit/4QKGIB?p=preview.

$scope.grid1=function(){
   $scope.gridOptions = $scope.gridOptions1;
   $scope.gridApi.core.notifyDataChange(uiGridConstants.dataChange.ALL);
 }
 $scope.grid2=function(){
   $scope.gridOptions = $scope.gridOptions2;
   $scope.gridApi.core.notifyDataChange(uiGridConstants.dataChange.ALL);
 }

How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

Basically you need to use angular.copy() while assigning columnDef to grid, which clones the array and set it to the gridOptions.

Code

 $scope.gridOptions = angular.copy($scope.gridOptions1);
 $http.get('https://cdn.rawgit.com/angular-ui/ui-grid.info/gh-pages/data/500_complex.json')
 .success(function(data) {
   $scope.gridOptions1.data = data;
   $scope.gridOptions2.data = data;
   $scope.grid1();
 });
 $scope.grid1=function(){
   $scope.gridOptions = angular.copy($scope.gridOptions1);
   $scope.gridApi.core.notifyDataChange(uiGridConstants.dataChange.ALL);
 }
 $scope.grid2=function(){
   $scope.gridOptions = angular.copy($scope.gridOptions2);
   $scope.gridApi.core.notifyDataChange(uiGridConstants.dataChange.ALL);
 }

Working Plunkr

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
