  1. Support autoScroll in DropDownList options.

    Add support for autoScroll to DropDownList options, such that the list scrolls when the mouse pointer reached the top of bottom of the container. Currently, autoScroll: true has no effect on that component.

    Mouse wheel scrolling of the options is not obvious to users, causing some to miss options that overflow the container.

    • Support closing the colorPicker via ".kendoPopup('close')"

      Currently to close the colorPicker manually, we have to do ".kendoColorPicker('close')", however the rest of the dropdowns/combos uses ".kendoPopup('close')".

      It will be great to support it as well with colorPickers to allow closing of all popup elements on scroll with a uniform solution

      • fix cascading comboboxes in ASPNET Core

        I'm using your demo to reproduce the issue.

        When the user enters a value into the categories and tabs, the focus is not placed in the products field, instead it goes to the View Order button. This makes using the cascade "feature" very difficult for users. The focus should go products so they can further refine the search. And then finally to orders. But each time they tab they have to move the cursor back to the next field.

        Also, since the product and order fields are disabled it prevents user from entering data (even if they know the correct…

          • Add support for custom data-* attributes on the <option> tag in kendoDropDownList

            Currently the data-* attributes on the <option> tags are removed by the kendoDropDownList widget.
            Please pass them through so they can be used.

            After searching the kendo.all.js I found that there is currently no way the custom data-* can be added into the generated html code.

            I'm using MVVM for a rather large SPA. Some parts of the SPA is generated on the server (webservice) which is just a partial html. Which looks like (simplest one):
            <select data-role="dropdownlist" name="ProductTypeID" class="k-textbox">
            <option value="9" data-cond="DependsValue(ProductTypeCategoryID,1)">Compliments cards</option>
            <option value="1" data-cond="DependsValue(ProductTypeCategoryID,1)">Flyers</option>
            <option value="3" data-cond="DependsValue(ProductTypeCategoryID,3)">Brochures</option>
            <option value="25" data-cond="DependsValue(ProductTypeCategoryID,6)">Roll-up banners</option>
            </select>

            In this case the data-cond…

            • OpenOnFocus

              It would be awesome to have the DropDownList automatically open upon focus and if filtering is enabled the focus/select the filter textbox.

              This is great from a data entry standpoint where keyboard Navigation like Tab keys are used.

              Maybe a property lag like OpenOnFocus=true

              • add pagination to multiselect

                Please consider adding pagination to the multi-select dropdown and also the select all, deselect all options to appear inside the dropdown instead of below the input field.

                • 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.

                    • Consistent keyboard navigation in drop down list

                      The keyboard navigation in drop down lists is currently inconsistent based on the widget configuration. When not filterable, the drop down allows you to type the first letter of one of the options in order to select it when the drop down is closed. For example, tab to the drop down, do not open it, and type 'b' to select Bob.

                      When the drop down is filterable, that behavior does not work. You must use alt-down to expand the drop down and then begin filtering.

                      I propose that the widget can consistently handle both cases by detecting whether the drop…

                      • Foldout dropdown on space press

                        The default behaviour of select elements is to open up with a space-keypress when the elemented is selected (focused).

                        • Complex Value for combobox

                          Need to add configuration to display value which is combination of two or more properties or fields in dataSource. Just like valueTemplate in dropdownlist list but without html tags, like

                          $('#comboboxinput').kendoComboBox({
                          dataSource:[{Name:"English (US)", Value:"en-US"}, {{Name:" Japanese (Japan)", Value:"ja-JP"}}],
                          template:"<div>#=data.Name+' - '+data.Value#</div>"
                          complexValueFormat:"data.Name+' - '+data.Value"
                          })

                          I was working on a project where I was asked to display large number of items on dropdown list so i was using template and valueTemplate confugurations, since the items was too large to scroll we decided to use combobox but the problem is unable to display complex values after selecting an item. Currently I'm…

                          • 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…

                              • 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 .

                                  • On MultiSelect have an option when they type in a complete name and then blur out to save that name, even if they don't hit enter or tab

                                    On MultiSelect have an option when they type in a complete name and then blur out to save that name.

                                    It works if they hit enter or tab. But if they don't (like if they immediately press the Submit button), then it looks it took their entry but it really did not.

                                    • Cascading ComboBox with values non in list

                                      ComboBox and DropDown are different because the first allows you to enter values non in list, but if you are using Cascading ComboBox, entering a value non in list in the first choice, the second choice is disabled. I'like to have cascading for values in list with option for inserting values non in list.

                                        Would be nice to allow selecting items from multiselect several times

                                        • multiselect with selective readonly-state on element-level

                                          the multiselect control should have the possibility to define elements as not editable (readonly) so that those elements can not be removed while other elements can be removed or new elements can be added.

                                            Thanks for the suggestion.

                                            Basically, the multiselect widget displays what’s available as items in its data source. The logic you describe can probably be applied at data source level, i.e. via your own programmatic checks you can specify which data source items to can be added/removed and visualized via the multiselect UI component.

                                            Does this make sense?
