  1. Documentation is hard to navigate

    Documentation on charts is very hard to navigate and search with too little examples.

    • Miscellaneous text annotations for all charts in Kendo UI DataViz

      We need functionality to allow annotations to charts (e.g. free text).

      We need to annotate our charts with text that is:

      - not a series value or note
      - not a category note
      - has no relationship with the plot data
      - not a title

      An example is text outlining the source of the data,

      We have succeeded in annotating charts with Snap.svg.js but the annotations do not survive the imageDataUrl() function for download (or the svg() function).

      Axis & series notes won't achieve what we want to do.

      We need to place free text (for example) at the top-left,…

      • beforeEdit event on Grid

        Currently, if a field is editable based on other field (e.g. Locked) a check should be performed in "edit" event handler, and inside here call grid.closeCell(). But this causes the cell focus to be lost (when using navigatable=true in batch editing mode).

        So a beforeEdit would allow the user to set some custom logic if needed.

        • Migrate source code to TypeScript

          I've been using the kendo.all.d.ts TypeScript definitions file from the beginning. While its quality has increased significantly overtime, it continues to have a lot of errors and omissions. I understand the Kendo UI TS definitions file is generated from the Kendo UI documentation. So the quality of the TS definitions file is only ever going to be as good as the documentation. And that's where the errors and omissions come from. Not everything is documented or documented correctly. I think the best Kendo UI TS definitions file can only be created when the Kendo UI source code itself is migrated…

            • Allow HTML attributes to be incrementally added to controls via an AddAttribute like method

              Currently on WidgetBuilderBase there is an HtmlAttributes method that clears any current HTML attributes before adding the new ones. It would be good if there was a separate method called maybe AddAttributes (or something similar) that would allow the addition of HTML attributes without clearing any existing ones.

              • DataSource's "read", "fetch", and "sync" methods should return a deferred

                There has been many scenarios where I've needed to know when a DataSource finishes a "read" or "sync" operation.

                I know there's the global "sync" event that I can bind to, but a lot of the time I only care about the result of one specific sync call. I can use the "one" method to only listen to it once, but this complicates things when I also care about errors. Since I need to register callbacks for both the "sync" and "error" events, and then unregister either one or the other, depending on which event fired.

                It's even harder hooking…

                • Add Title to Kendo Gauge

                  There is no title option for the Radial / Linear Gauge at present. It would be great if you could include in it.

                  • Kendo Web - Mobile as ListView - search field should not be scrollable

                    In Kendo Web - Mobile as ListView - search field should not be scrollable, only listings should be scrollable.

                    If user scrolls down couple of pages down and now he wants improvise the search, then again he has to scroll back to type in search field. If only listing scrollable then search field is always visible where user can type whenever wanted.
                    I dont know how this is missed in the current release. This is very basic.

                    • 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.

                      • Add new attribute that the Validator will detect and skip validation on that element/widget

                        Add new attribute that the Validator will detect and skip validation on that element/widget.

                        Eg; skip-validation="true"
                        <input type="text" required />

                        and then at run time you could toggle the skip-validation attribute.

                        <input type="text" required skip-validation="true" />

                        This would be perfect for complex forms where you are togging the visibility of div container of controls depending on what options that user selects in the form.

                        The problem is at the moment, the validation will validate controls that are not visible. Having a skip-validation attribute would solve this problem, as when you hide the div container you cold also toggle the skip-validation…

                        • Treeview ScrollIntoView feature

                          :upon selecting an item, either by click or programmatically,

                          $(tv).scrollIntoView(item) with would bring the item into view, even in multilevel nested, hierarchical, situations.

                          that would be very sweet!!
                          I have tried JQuery.scrollTo but have had no success in nested <li>
                          scenarios.
                          thanks

                          item will scroll into view

                          • Datasource filter "contains" on schema "number" with ignorecase item errors

                            Create a datasource with a schema that has number fields.

                            Try to filter by one of these fields using a "contains" and an ignorecase and kendoui creates an expression like

                            (function(d, __f, __o) {
                            return ((d.MyNumber || '').toLowerCase().indexOf('12') >= 0)
                            })

                            this errors because the number does not have a toLowerCase() method.

                            Our code is generic and we do not want to have to change ignorecase depending on the data-type, as sometime the filter will be on a string and sometimes on a number. Can a fix be put in place to allow this combination to run without error.

                            Thanks.

                                • Scheduler No Data Template

                                  I would like to define a template or a message or something such that when there's no events the scheduler doesn't just look like a smushed collection of buttons, or having to set a min-height on the event zone or some other hack.

                                  • create a click event for plotbands

                                    It would be very helpful if we could catch the click on a plotband to enable interaction or create clickable regions on the chart

                                    • Telerik Asp.net Web Control and Features

                                      I think that many great ideas are already presents into the Telerik Asp.net Web Suite and that many of them MUST be "imported" (as soon as possible) into Kendo UI. Controls like SocialShare, File Exporer, Image Editor, Lightbox etc are some "must have" that will be fantastic to see into Kendo UI. Or for example having many of the Telerik Ajax Editor features into Kendo UI editors can be take into account. I suppose that trying to unify the "Telerik Web Controls World" can help future implementation (sharing things like XAML and Silverlight also if more difficult but maybe its…

                                      • Add official support for range and prefetch methods on DataSource

                                        There are several undocumented methods on the data source which provide some really nice functionality. The DataSource is able to store multiple 'pages' of data in an internal collections of ranges that can be accessed and populated by the range() and prefetch() methods. It looks like this is used mostly to support virtual grid scrolling, but I have found it very useful for other applications where a data source uses server operations. This is a really great feature and I'd like to see it officially supported in the future!

                                        • Selection on X/Y graphs

                                          By design chart selection is supported only for categorical charts (bar, column etc.) but not for XY-charts (scatter, scatterline etc.).

                                          I'd like a similar UI for scatter charts to enable you to select data from the chart especially when the x axis is a time line.
