  1. Add closed captions to your existing webinars on youtube

    Please consider to add closed captions / subtitles to your existing webinars as well to each future recorded webinar; CC are a very handy aid not only for people that are hearing impaired but also for people like me for whom English is not their native language.

    Thank you

      When a user downloads a custom build from http://www.telerik.com/download/custom-download, provide a URL that the user can bookmark/save then use to go back to the custom build page with the same components checked and same kendo version selected.

      • make the docs easier to find

        Right now, the kendo-ui docs are a bit difficult to get to and navigate. They're inherently clear as to where they are, being nested 3 clicks beyond ["SUPPORT AND LEARNING"] in the top menu.

        just to illustrate this, I made a video of how you get to the docs from a cold search of kendo ui. It takes way too many page steps just to get to the docs.

        [VIDEO LINK]
        https://www.dropbox.com/s/d0osh6imco5fq08/2016-05-05-2016-01.mp4?dl=0

        Once you're there, it's not a bad experience - but still, I think there really ought to be a simple ["DOCUMENTATION]" menu item that is verbose and clear,…

        • Allow changing padding/line-height in Theme-Builder

          It's great to be able to change *colors* of your themes, but many times the worst thing about your themes is the amount of padding/line-height you've chosen. Please allow Theme Builder to customize that, OR at the very least give us an option like GMail used to do (don't know if they still do) where you can have "cozy", "comfortable", "small", "huge", etc.

          A great example of how odd too much padding can be is right here on this page. When typing this new suggestion, the drop-down box to choose a "category" has wasted height.

          • my first kendo ui application - getting started

            KendoUI "Getting Started" does not have well organized steps that first time users can follow through. It is made of fragments of somewhat related pages in no particular order, and even after going through them all (about five or six of them), you're still thinking how do I build my first application.

            All framework and tool vendors provide step by step getting started guide to build a simple application (commonly hello world app). This usually addresses what to download, how to setup the project, which tools or IDE can be used, a simplest possible application structure to test out if…

                  • improve description of options in api

                    I find the documentation is critically lacking with regards to the available options for a feature.

                    Here is an example of what I mean...

                    http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/dataviz/diagram/layout#configuration-alignContent

                    The diagram Layout > alignContent feature "Specifies the alignment of the content."

                    Ok, but the documentation does not even say what the allowed values are. Instead, it just has "alignContent String (default: "start")".

                    Now, I guess the allowed values here are the same values allowed for an SVG text-anchor.
                    https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/SVG/Attribute/text-anchor

                    How about adding those possible values to the api documentation, or including a link to the relevant area of the SVG specification?

                    Hope this makes…

                    • Improve your documentation.

                      I am trying to use the DropDownList and find this level of documentation:

                      <div class="demo-section k-content">
                      <h4>Products</h4>
                      @(Html.Kendo().DropDownList()
                      .Name("products")
                      .DataTextField("ProductName")
                      .DataValueField("ProductID")
                      .DataSource(source => {
                      source.Read(read =>
                      {
                      read.Action("GetProducts", "Home");
                      });
                      })
                      .HtmlAttributes(new { style = "width: 100%" })
                      )
                      </div>

                      The only other source file is a simple Controller Action method to return a result. There is no indication of what type of data is to be returned by the read.Action("GetProducts", "Home");

                      What fields are required in the data?
                      What field or fields are passed back to the Controller on Submit?
                      Is it JSON?
                      Is it in a wrapper like…

                      • Add documentation for kendo.date and kendo.timezone

                        As mentioned here: http://www.telerik.com/forums/please-make-apis-used-in-your-sample-projects-official-public
                        you make use of kendo.date and kendo.timezone in your examples. It would be nice to know a bit more about those. And to have them available in typescript.
