  1. On touch screens, make it possible to have link on a menu item having a sub menu (dropdown)

    Currently, when a menu item is a link and has a sub menu, the sub menu is never shown on touch screens.

    The first click on the menu item opens the link. On touch screens, the first click should open up the sub menu, and a second click would be needed to open the link.

    • MVVM Binding ViewModel Source

      It would be nice if it will be possible to bind multiple viewmodel to a single DOM container. Like xaml binding in witch you can specify a "Binding Source" adding a simple way to specify different viewmodel can help in many real situation. The solution can be accomplished very easily. If you introduce an override of kendo.bind in witch u can specify a key string for identify a viewmodel then with a data attribute or a custom binding you can filter when activate or not the bindings.

      • Allow list of DateTime/TimeSpan values to be bound to a TimePicker

        From what I can see, there is the possibility of providing the TimePicker a list of Dates when building it via JavaScript (http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/web/timepicker#configuration-dates), but not through the MVC wrapper. It would be nice to have parity between the two methods, if possible.

        • Allow direct template assignment for listview

          ClientTemplateId is fine when you are using kendo templates, but in our case we use handlebars templates, and in order to tell a listview that we need to do something horrible like

          <script type="text/x-kendo/tmpl" id="TPStrengthTemplate">
          #= Handlebars.templates.TPStrength(data) #
          </script>

          asside from interop, the script tag is untenable in large applications, as it may force us to create TONS of superfious script tags (some with the same id in the case of repeating partial views). Especially when template precompiling is a 'best practice' for client templating (hence our use of handlebars)

          instead there should just be an option to specify a…

            • Dataviz chart click events expose e.event.originalEvent

              As per support ticket 806897

              Telerik: "By design both seriesClick and plotAreaClick events of Kendo UI Chart don't contain information about the clicked button or mouse coordinates. We will appreciate it if you submit this idea as a feature request at our UserVoice portal - this way the community would be able to evaluate it and if the suggestion gains popularity we will consider its implementation for future releases."

              Original request:

              We are using mvvm binding to your Chart events

              • Drag and drop multiple items

                I have a list view of unassigned users, I can drag and drop from listview into a treeview to assign them to a group node in the treeview. (This works) I need to drag multiple items to the same group node to add more than one person at a time.

                multiple draggables to one dropTarget.

                • To auto save child grid when saving parent grid when creating new data

                  Currently Jun 2014, when saving new data on hierarchy (parent/child) grid, there is no possible way to save the header data, get the pk of the header and pass the pk to child data and save the child data.

                  I suggest to add a feature to auto save both parent and child data when user click save button when creating new data.
                  Basically do ajax save for the parent, on success pass header's pk to do ajax save for child.

                  • Make the Upload widget bindable to a datasource

                    In order to be able to manage files attached to server objects, it would be nice if we could bind the Upload widget to a datasource.
                    The read() method of the datasource could be used to load the widget with the list of files attached to a given server object.
                    The create() method would be used to upload new files to the sever.
                    The destroy() method would be used for deleting existing files on the server.

                    This would make the upload widget more consistent with other widgets like the combo boxes or the dropdown lists.

                    • Add sort/filter events for dataSource

                      Add sort/filter events or add an extra parameter in the 'change' event object so that we can detect if a data source was filtered or it was sorted.(Mostly needed when working with grids)

                      • Notification should scroll line in noty.js or toastr.js

                        Notifications stack should be able to slide after previous notification hides, like in toastr:
                        http://codeseven.github.io/toastr/demo.html
                        choose Bottom Right position and add some notifications. After last hides rest slides down. Same behaviour should be possible in KendoUI Notification

                          • Retrieve filtered set from DataSource or Grid

                            In lieu or as part of select-all capability:

                            Expose a way to retrieve the filtered set of data (or keys) in the grid and other filterable controls.

                            In other words, when a user has applied their own filters, there is currently no method to retrieve the filtered set across the entire dataset. That makes implementing a select-all button a bit tricky as you have to either select all on the current page (view) or the entire unfiltered dataset and then apply the filter yourself.

                            • Option to activate incell editing mode in the Grid on double-click

                              Based on the examples here (http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/web/grid/editing-custom.html), "incell" editing allows editing a single cell at a time. The edit mode is activated upon a single click in the cell.

                              I would like to have a way to combine this with "cell" selectable mode, e.g. like this?
                              * A single click on a cell selects the cell and fires the "change" event.
                              * A double click on a cell activates the edit mode for the cell.

                              • DataViz Chart should support drawing a horizontal line

                                If you need to draw a horizontal line in Kendo DataViz Chart (to express desired target value for budget consumption, for example), you have now only two possibilities using line series or plot bands. Unfortunately both approaches have drawbacks:

                                1) Using additional line series
                                In this case the line doesn't start at the beginning of the image of the chart, there is visible margin. Also, the determining of number of values for the line series is painful in case you have multiple series with different value counts bind on server side.

                                2) Using plot bands
                                In this case the actual…

                                      • Make kendo grid cells customizable

                                        Currently its possible to set static attributes or CSS classes to kendo grid columns by specifying then in column definition:

                                        var columns = [{ field: 'someData', title: 'Some Data', attributes { 'class': 'some-css'} }];

                                        Please add possibility to add custom attributes or CSS Classes dynamically (depending on data row):

                                        var columns = [{ field: 'someData', title: 'Some Data', attributes { 'class': function(dataRow){ return dataRow.data > 1 ? 'css-go-up': 'css-go-down' }} }];

                                        Just similar how it works with template for column.

                                        Thanks,
                                        Val

                                        • Make the DropDownList's Up/Down Arrow Keydown Events Bindable When Expanded

                                          Make up/down arrow keydown events fire a DropDownList change event when in the expanded state.

                                          When a user clicks on the DropDownList, the list gets expanded. There is no change event fired for up/down arrow keydown events. I currently have to intercept the up/down keydown events manually. Having up/down arrow keydown events fire a change event would make the widget more intuitive and helpful for user interactions.
