  1. Delay grid row filter initialization

    We have a feature where we initialize our Grids with row filters, but we don't display them right away. We show hide them with a "Show/Hide Filters" button. It would be great to save some time on initial load of the grid (our client wants the ability to display up to ~100 columns with filters, and there's a noticeable performance impact building those filter controls), and delay that time for if/when the user decides they want to actually use the filters.

    • Allow Custom Attributes to be added on Command buttons

      Quite often you would need to set custom attributes to buttons that may not have any inbuilt functionality for Kendo Grid. This option is currently not available unless we use a template and build our own buttons. It would be useful to set the attributes similar to how the class attributes are set so we won't have to build a template of our own.

      • Support Google Material Icons in Kendo Grid

        Add a new attribute columns.command.materialIconClass and render it e.g. as <i class="material-icons">contact_mail</i>

        Example:

        var grid = $("#grid").kendoGrid({
        dataSource: {
        pageSize: 20,
        data: createRandomData(50)
        },
        pageable: true,
        height: 550,
        columns: [
        { field: "FirstName", title: "First Name", width: "140px" },
        { field: "LastName", title: "Last Name", width: "140px" },
        { field: "Title" },
        { command: { materialIconClass: "contact_mail", text: "View Details", click: showDetails }, title: " ", width: "180px" }]
        }).data("kendoGrid");

        • Applying multiple types of filter criteria on a grid column

          Currently, the Kendo grid has an option to apply only one type of filtering for a specific column (be it standard filtering or multi-checkbox filtering).

          There is a custom approach which actually builds a custom check box list that is attached to the standard filter. But, there are lot of options that are missing like Select All, Search box etc.

          There should be a way where user can apply different types of filter criteria on the same column.

          • make sure resize handles work when browser is zoomed out

            When a user zooms OUT on a browser(like Google Chrome) to 67% or 75%, sometimes the resize handles do not work. We added css on top to see why(made the resize handle more visible). The handle moves to the left the more the user zooms out. Seems to work fine up to 80% but starts to fail after that. Thanks

            • Make the selectable column and the "selectable" grid setting work together

              Currently the new select column and the "selectable" setting of the grid are mutually exclusive. This seems completly counter intutive. If you you have a select column and the "selectable" mode set to "multiple", then when you drag select or ctrl click on row the checkbox to be selected. Right now it's not.

              • Grid - Change selected row with arrow keys

                Currently, pressing the arrow keys will scroll up and down the grid. It would be good if we could also use the arrow keys to change the selected row

                • Grid: Add configuration for custom column titles for the column menu

                  It would be nice to have the option to configure different column titles for the column menu. For example, when there is a multi-header Grid, you could use this functionality to add the header title to the column title.

                  • Double click selection for kendo grid

                    I know there was a request was declined, but DOM double click can't pass data row, it is a common feature to have.

                    • keeping the columns together with out using the group column header

                      With out using the group column header(columns.columns). it is better to enable one option to keep some of the columns locking together in the grid. If you reorder one column other columns should move with it like that. When we use the columns.columns option we can't find the columns under that header using the column Index (column[index]) option.

                        • Pass server side variables to Ajax() datasource binding for Kendo Grid

                          Current, if one were to use the Kendo Grid in UI for MVC, there's no way to bind the datasource using Ajax binding and specify server side parameters to the read function in the controller.

                          In many cases, the read function on the controller side will use a primary key to do a select statement to get particular details of a model to render.

                          This is relatively simple to keep track of on the javascript side and server side when there's just one grid, as we can use a hidden input and always update it's value from the model.

                          However,…

                          • pass server side variables into client footer template funcitons

                            Currently, there's no way to pass variables into client footer template functions that are registered with client footer templates.

                            In the case when you have multiple grids on the same page with different grid ids, you are forced to instantiate multiple javascript callback functions with the grid id/name baked into the function.

                            Consider:

                            @foreach @foreach (var model in Model.MyModels)
                            ...
                            ...
                            @(Html.Kendo().Grid<eFHOL.Models.ViewModels.MyModelModel>
                            ()
                            .Name("ModelGrid_" + @model.ID)
                            .Columns(columns =>
                            {
                            columns.Bound(m => m.Name).Width(30).ClientFooterTemplate("#= footerLabel(data) #");
                            columns.Bound(m => m.Hours).Width(30).ClientFooterTemplate("#= HoursSumAvg_" + @model.ID + "(data) #");
                            columns.Bound(m => m.Weight).Width(30).ClientFooterTemplate("#= WeightSumAvg_" + @model.Weight + "(data) #");

                            And you will have to have server side…

                            • Need ability to clear all selections when persistSelection is true

                              It seems that you would want to conditionally have clearSelection() behave differently with persistSelection enabled, as it does not clear the selection of items on other pages. At the very least offer us a clearAllSelections() method if modifying the behavior of the other method is not desirable.

                                • Add property that sets debounce time when Virtual Scrolling is enabled

                                  Add property that defines a delay before requesting new items when scrolling.

                                  This would prevent sending multiple request when dragging the scrollbar and passing more than one page.

                                    • Make grid popup editor match dialog component.

                                      The popup dialog used by the Grid control does not match the Dialog control. With the same theme applied, the title bar is different (height, font size, and close button), and the button bar footer layout is completely different (button shape, size, and location).

                                      By default, dialog look & feel should be consistent across controls using the same theme.

                                      • Add an grid rendered event to the kendo UI grid

                                        The new event should fire as soon as the grid is fully rendered und ready to take user input or focus.

                                        We need this for automated UI Testing. SetTimeout does not work reliable.

                                        • When Frozen Columns are enabled on grid, allow user to have no columns frozen

                                          Frozen Columns is a really useful addition to the grid, but we're not able to implement it at present as we don't want to force our users to always have one column locked. We don't want to dictate which column that should be, e.g. fixing the LH column.

                                          If we could enable Frozen Columns giving the user freedom to freeze one or more columns of their choice, that would be ideal.
