  1. Drawer widget: option to disable opening via swipe

    The drawer widget can be opened either via a button click or the user swiping anywhere. Our users consider this unexpected behavior, and often wonder what they are looking at after an accidental swipe.

      • Create node.js middleware for mongoose

        Please consider creating a node.js middleware for mongoose so we can easily implement server side paging, filtering, etc for data source requests using node.js and mongoose (mongodb). Although mongodb itself is schema-less, mongoose does use schemas and is the most popular choice for working with mongodb and node.js. Currently, there is no other solution (that I am aware of) that offers similar functionality.

        The only thing that currently comes close to providing such functionality is JayData which includes support for mongodb only in their pro edition and forces you to use it in place of mongoose and one would need…

        • Java wrappers for KendoUI

          Consider “Java” wrappers for the KendoUI . The use case for “Java” wrappers is for existing Java server side applications that embed the UI code in the Java classes (no JSP / JSF), similar to the Vaadin philosophy, but without having to adopt Vaadin and yet be able to incrementally enhance existing / stable, line of business web applications, without a complete rewrite.

            • Multiselect: Select multiple at once

              The current MultiSelect only allows you to select one value at a time when clicking the dropdown. I would like to see either checkboxes or use the ctrl button to select multiple at once.

              • Why not add a parameter object in the close method of the Kendo window ?

                If the close method can accept the parameter object, then we can check if execute our logic in the close event.

                  • Cancel property change propagation

                    For performance reasons, it would be nice to be able to stop the change notification for the change of a single property value on a single item in an ObservableArray (or DataSource) from causing the whole ObservableArray from raising a change notification for its bindings.

                    This causes all the bindings for all the items to be re-evaluated.

                    • Allow API access to Kendo Mobile history

                      If we have a flow of 3 steps. A1 -> A2 -> A3 -> B1 I want to be able to hit back and go to A1. This is currently not allowed and we must construct flows based upon views that have to be linear forward and back. I want to be linear forward but go back differently.

                            • Ability to modify bottom margin on Scheduler events

                              A feature that allows the events in the Scheduler to have their ‘margin-bottom’ property assigned programmatically. This is required to support custom events with a border-width > 1px.

                              Currently, the code calculating event position assumes the border-width on events will be 1px, and it works perfectly when that assumption is correct. Increasing the border-width results in events overlapping each other, which is something I’d like to avoid.

                                  • Return Values from GET Handlers

                                    I would like to propose that GET handlers return values that can be returned to their callers. This would allow for things like proxy objects that can return values from other objects, without having to override the get function. It would also allow for modification, augmentation, or replacement of values.

                                    • Check whether current AutoComplete value is in suggestions

                                      Add a way to check if the current AutoComplete value would be in the suggestions. Since the widget already searched for the value to see if it is in suggestions I would prefer to be able to check the result of that search. Something like calling kendoAutoComplete.search() but not have it affect the UI - just tell me if it was found or not. Is that possible?

                                      I want to be able to alter the UI if the user has entered a value that is not detected in the suggestions to let them know it is not a valid value,…

                                      • I need the ability to set the data-title value through JavaScript post render.

                                        I am adding i18n to an application to support 22 countries. The data-title does not appear to be able to be set via JavaScript. I have a highly dynamic application and I'm using localization for all labels and need to change the titles on the fly.

                                          Thanks for your query.

                                          To clarify, are you able to set the data-title via javascript in your scenario without Kendo UI included? I am trying to identify whether this is generally an issue or missing functionality.

                                          Thanks for your additional input.

                                          We all know that the default JavascriptSerializer built into ASP.NET leaves much to be desired, which is why developers are swapping out the built in one from ASP.NET for others such as JSON.NET and ServiceStack.

                                          The issue that a lot of developers encounter when working with the MVC Wrappers is that it appears to be using the build in JavascriptSerializer, which is miserably slow and hard to work with when trying to take data from an ORM (with navigation properties) and display it on the Grid. Most of our grids closely represent a table in our database, but because the…
