  1. Option to disable multiselect items

    The current multiselect items can't be disabled, you can only disable the whole control itself. It would be great if we could disable certain multiselect items for example, so a end-user can see that there are more options, but that he doesn't have sufficient permissions to choose them.

    • Google-Like odata autocomplete

      When bound to oData, the autocomplete contains filter should treat each WORD as a new "substringof"....or make a new odata advanced contains type\property.

      This is more what users expect when searching...and the odata spec has it covered.

        • Add separator / delimiter functionality to the Kendo Dropdownlist

          I'd like to add separators between groups of items in a select / kendoDropDownList. Also known as a horizontal line or delimiter.
          The same question was asked here by someone else: http://www.telerik.com/forums/separator-in-dropdownlist
          The answer was that this is not supported.

          • Allow us to display a dropdown arrow on a kendoMultiSelect

            A kendoDropDownList places an arrow to the right of the <select/> element, indicating it's a dropdown (.k-i-arrow-s). It would be cool if kendoMultISelect did the same thing.
            Clicking the <select/> element or the arrow should also toggle the visibility on the list items.

            See http://stackoverflow.com/questions/31825788/kendo-multiselect-to-have-arrow-icon-and-behavior-to-close-on-click .

            • Combobox - add flag to prevent value from being displayed as text

              Currently when a combo box is used on an edit form, when the combo box first loads, the value property it is bound to (e.g. an int id) is displayed as the text until the databound event fires, and the text value associated with that value can be loaded. It gives the combo boxes an unprofessional look, as they briefly display a number until they are done loading. It also creates some other problems when you have a custom filter function, as described here:

              http://www.telerik.com/account/support-tickets/view-ticket.aspx?threadid=781390

                • Combobox should support options disabled attribute

                  The combobox currently doesn't react on the disabled-attribute for options. It should be possible to make single options visible but not selectable with this attribute as in original html-select:
                  http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml_option_disabled
                  I found no way to do this yet.

                  • Decorate the autocomplete matching text with an element for styling

                    I'd like to be able to style the matching text from autocomplete, so I'd like the option for kendo to perhaps wrap the text in a span or something I can get a handle on...

                    So if I typed "Back" it'll give me results like this
                    <li><span class='t-match'>Back</span> to the future</li>

                        • Add a maxlength shortcut to kendo-combo-box.

                          The problem with relying on maxlength that is built into HTML elements is that they do not work in instances where you are rendering multiple inputs as with the kendo-combo-box. If I set the max length, it sets the max length of the select, which is does nothing. It needs to transfer that maxlength to the input text which is rendered along with the select.

                          Yes, there are workarounds, but when you are using the controls in an angular mvvm environment where you write little to no jquery, the simplest fix should be to have the control code render the…

                              Thanks for the suggestion.

                              Since you’ll be searching/filtering through the data from several fields, is there an option to combine these fields into one and then assign it to the autocomplete? This can happen either at data source level, or with your custom implementation which does that before feeding the widget with data.

                              Also do you know of other html autocomplete widget which supports such functionality?

                            • DropDownList functionality to disable items

                              I would love to see the ability to disable/enable items in the DropDownList dynamically at run time. We have complex validation rules in our UI that need to prevent the user from using certain items if other options are selected.

                              The big problem is the DropDownList doesn't let me enable/disable items or add/remove them.

                              This means instead of having a few change events wired up to enable/disable items, I need to do it in complex validation rules.

                              I think the ability to disable/enable items would be a valuable feature to the kendo framework.

                              Regards,

                              Scott

                                    • ComboBox don't auto scroll to item when user type data

                                      Hi Support Team,

                                      Current, we are facing a problem when using "kendo ComboBox" and options in attachment. To reproduce this issue, you have to run sample(kendoui.web.2013.1.319.commercial\examples\web\combobox\index.html) from attachment on safari of iPad.
                                      Step by step:
                                      1. Click on arrow icon to expand items
                                      2. Click on textbox
                                      3. Type data to search items near the last item on textbox

                                      Actual: ComboBox don't auto scroll to item of user typed.

                                      • Multiselect height auto adjustment

                                        Currently multiselect increases its height to accommodate all selected values. Can you please provide a way where it reverts back to its height after selecting all values and shows 1 value and count for rest of the values selected?

                                        Here is a screenshot:
                                        http://s11.postimg.org/ur5qqy5lv/Multi_Select.png

                                        You can see it's implementation selecting values in "Type Location or Project" multiselect on Residential Tab

                                        • 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.
