  1. Ability to handle a data source with circular references

    I ran into this problem wherein I receive a 'Maximum stack size exceeded error' when I try to bind a collection with circular references to kendo ui grids and data viz charts. My Angular SPA is using breeze to fetch server-side entity models. As these are entity models, they do have circular references. I am also using the angular-kendo library for the directives.

    Current fixes include manual removal of such entities from the collection. It would be great if the controls can handle such collections.

      To understand your request better, can you elaborate on how you would expect the data source to resolve/handle circular references without going into infinite loop?

      Also do you know of other third-party data source components which handle this scenario, and if so can you point us to them?

    • Option to disallow null values for numeric textboxes

      For cases where validation after the fact isn't good enough there should be an option that disallows setting numeric textboxes to null. If the user sets it to null and moves to another field the textbox should reset to 0.

      • Get next occurrence of a recurring event

        I had done a post for a new feature suggestion - http://kendoui-feedback.telerik.com/forums/127393-telerik-kendo-ui-feedback/suggestions/6261117-get-next-occurrence-of-a-recurring-event

        This was replied and closed. The suggestion is by no means useful. It DOES NOT achieve what we want. Both the suggestions requires using the scheduler widget and I clearly stated we don't want to use the widget. Also I don't want to get all the occurrences. I just need to get the next occurrence give a start date and an instance of the event. Better still it will be good if I can just provide the pattern and the start date to get the next first occurrence.…

          • Add right click and double click event to diagram shapes

            As of now there is no right click and double click events on diagram shapes, It will be useful if an event is raised on these particular actions. because these are the obvious actions on shapes

            • Support Byte[] in QR code

              Right now, the only charsets that are supported are UTF8 and ISO/IEC 8859-1.

              Since I have a lot of data to encode, I can get a more efficient output by directly writing a stream of bytes.

              • Enable "Binding" for Drag and Drop

                The "Drag and Drop" system in Kendo is pretty good, but it has the distinct characteristic of being pretty much DOM only; It won't really "bind" to underlying data.

                This would be an extremely useful feature - the "suggested fix" for this right now is to use the kendo ListView and do a search for GUID on the events firing, and while this isn't really "bad", it's pretty cumbersome and kind of obtuse most of the time.

                I have spent extensive time looking at the source code for Drag and Drop, and it would not be very difficult to give…

                  • Custom aggregate functions for data source/ chart series.

                    When using aggregates, it should be possible to define your own aggregate function, or even set it globally for kendo, so it could be used in other places. i.e.

                    currently you can only specify the function name like 'sum', 'avg', etc. with this idea you could give the whole function like function(arguments...) {}

                    Also from what I saw it would be nice to have the `functions` object from kendo.data.js accessible, so you could add your custom functions, like:
                    `kendo.data.aggregate_functions['median'] = function(arguments...) {}`

                    • Improve tooltip positions

                      Initializing tooltips on a container and filter is great, but we need a way to individualize some configuration options, especially positions.

                      Option 1: position = "auto"
                      if the target is close to the top, position is automatically set to bottom
                      if the target is close to the bottom, position is automatically set to top
                      if the target is close to the left, position is automatically set to right
                      if the target is close to the right, position is automatically set to left

                      Option2: position = function(tooltip, target) {}

                      This might be applicable to other properties.

                          Can you specify what features you would expect to see in such a component, apart from what today’s browsers provide as document browsing experience?

                          References to javascript-based third-party solutions will also be helpful.

                                • Ignore culture on input in NumericTextBox

                                  As suggested here : http://www.telerik.com/forums/supporting-both-comma-and-dot-for-decimal-input
                                  With this example : http://trykendoui.telerik.com/ikId/2

                                  Having to force either the dot or comma for numerical input is cumbersome in applications where customers input data all day long and it has to be effective.

                                  I would suggest a flag named along the lines of "IgnoreCultureOnInput" which would allow you to punch in either the dot or the comma, but have it converted it back into your local for display.

                                  Note that the example above is not complete as it is :
                                  1 - locale specific (won't adjust if you locale calls for a comma instead)
                                  2…

                                  • Integrate into 3rd party packaging systems other than NPM like jamjs, bowser, volo, etc.

                                    The kendo core would benefit from having integration packaging systems other than npm, especially jamjs. Kendo already implements AMD which is what jam specializes in.

                                    • Grid refresh should independent from pageable builder

                                      The refresh button availability should be indepent from the grid being pageable. The user may want an updatable grid without having page navigator.

                                      • Show allow drag and drop feature from one gantt to another.

                                        If there has two or more gantt chart on the screen. some of the value should be able to move by dragging from one to another rather than defining again.

                                        • Support adding DropDown control in TreeView

                                          I want to add DropDown control to TreeView node. But when I try to open a drop down list it closes, because there is a conflict between treeview and dropdown events.
