  1. Alert when navigating away from a route/view whose model has unsaved changes

    It would be nice to have a built in method to alert a user with a confirmation dialog when they are attempting to navigate away from a route/view that has a model with unsaved changes. An example of this would be DirtyForms but this library will not always work with Kendo as it is applied to the form and and not a model. There might be many non-form/input methods one can interact with a model in a rich web application.

    • Enable data-stretch on drawer's to disable automatic scroller

      Currently drawer's automatically add a scroller wrapper. Sometimes you want the content in the drawer to automatically stretch to fit the drawer.

      • Include kendo.all.d.ts in your CDN

        Now that jsbin supports Typescript, putting Kendo's typescript definitions in a public place would be helpful. Demonstrating the power of Typescript and Kendo together in jsbin is a powerful combination for answering questions and teaching!

        • .Where, .Select, .Single, .OrderBy, First on ObservableArray

          It would be exponentially helpful if the "ObservableArray" implemented some basic "Where/Select/Single" methods. This would assist in searching through them and give Kendo UI a much needed facelift in the array department.

          Behavior would be, theoretically, as follows...

          var viewModel = kendo.observable({
          Users: [
          {
          id: 1,
          name: "Stacey"
          },
          {
          id: 2,
          name: "Dylan"
          },
          {
          id: 3,
          name: "John"
          }
          ]
          });

          var idSearch = 1;

          var result = kendo.Search(viewModelArray).Where(function(x) { return x.id == idSearch });

          or ...

          var result = kendo.Search(viewModelArray)
          .Single(function(x) { return x.id == idSearch });

          or possibly even chained like in "linqjs"

          var result…

          • Add more direct support for jQuery Validation

            When using jQuery Validation in your forms, particularly with jQuery Unobtrusive Validation, the Kendo controls don't behave well from a styling perspective. In order to get things to work, you need to use a script like the one from this example:

            https://github.com/telerik/kendo-examples-asp-net-mvc/blob/master/kendo-input-widgets-validation/KendoInputs_Validation/Views/Home/jQuery_KendoMvcValidate.cshtml

            It would be nice if this script/support was better documented and potentially included as a supported mechanism rather than something each customer has to implement and tweak individually.

            • Add templateSettings properties to extend the usefulness of the automatic kendo Grid template

              The current built-in _tmpl: method of kendo.grid constructs a very nice automatic row template that is aware of alternation, hasDetails and all the columns.* configuration settings such as formats and attributes.

              Two new templateSettings could make the automatic template even more useful, especially for row-wise highlighting based on data conditions (aka traffic highlighting):

              templateSettings.autoGridTrClassHook : string
              - inject addtional classes or kendo template source into the class="..." attribute of the <TR> element in the automatic row template

              templateSettings.autoGridTrHook : string
              - inject addtional html source or kendo template source into the <TR> element of the automatic row template

              Example

              $('#grid').empty().kendoGrid({ …

              • Slide out panels or drawers.

                It would be really nice to have slide out panels or drawers (not the same as the existing mobile drawer, but similar).

                The demo below shows a good example (left, right and top).

                  Are searching for drawer functionality on desktop rather than on mobile devices?

                  If so, note that we have plans to decouple our Kendo UI Mobile widgets and make them usable in desktop context. Additionally, you should be able to customize the drawer’s look and feel as you can now on mobile.

                  Stay tuned for updates in the upcoming months.

                • Hide Edit Recurring Item popup in kendo scheduler

                  I am using Kendo Scheduler to show the appointments. I have appointment creation/edition screen. I want to redirect it to that page whenever user tries to add/modify an appointment/ Recurring appointment from Scheduler. I want to hide the Edit Recurring Item popup message in KendoUI Scheduler while editing recurring appointment as I want to edit the whole series instead of editing single occurrence. So whenever user tries to edit recurring appointment, i want to redirect it to appointment editing screen with all the details without showing any message.

                  • Make common elements publicly accessible

                    Make common elements publicly accessible.

                    Most notably, root objects like ui.Widget, ui.List, and data.DataSource objects, and sub functions like parseOption and parseOptions, are all internally referenced. You cannot extend any of them to provide global functionality to the elements that inherit from them.

                    kendo.ui.List and kendo.data.DataSource were particularly frustrating to debug, since the externally available versions are only copies of the real internal objects. I tried to add global functionality that never worked until I realized that the real inherited objects were closure objects.

                    • Datasource should have a method to add array of data at once.

                      It would go great batch syncing. And controls would redraw(refresh) just once when array of items is added. Not refreshing control and manipulating DOM(very slow) each time the item is added to datasource.
                      Example use case: scheduler month events copying...

                      • Delay show up of chart tooltips

                        add delay parameter for the chart tooltips (like showAfter property for the kendo.ui.tooltip) so you're able to configure if you'd like to see a tooltip if you just move the mouse pointer over a chart.
                        Parameter should be available on all wrappers esp. MVC.

                                    • Add few basic html helpers in Kendo()

                                      it would be nice if Html.Kendo() would has:
                                      - textboxfor
                                      - checkboxfor
                                      - button
                                      - actionlink
                                      with apropriate KendoUI styling. Now we have to add CSS classes.

                                      • Grid: make collapse optional when using grouping

                                        Would be nice to have a simple grouping without collapse and additional column for expand/collapse icon (just a grouping row with colspan attribute)
