      Can you specify what features you would expect to see in such a component, apart from what today’s browsers provide as document browsing experience?

      References to javascript-based third-party solutions will also be helpful.

    • Implement Breadscrumbs Widget

      Create a breadcrumb trail like horizontal navigation on top of web page below headers which will provide a hierarchical site structure.

      Typical breadcrumbs looks like:
      Home page > Section page > Subsection page

        • Make grid (or data source) parse related object property types

          Currently when a grid is bound to a model with related objects and properties via JSON, the grid will only parse the top level object types and treat and related properties as generic objects hence dates are not dates anymore, etc.

          Please consider having the grids parse related object properties and data types so there isn't a need for flattened ViewModels in order to properly visualize related data and be able to filter and sort it correctly.

          • Grid timezone

            Grid should have facility to set timezone from server side(like Scheduler). Rather than display dates in client side timezone.

            • Footer for popup editor / window

              I hope, for the grid's custom/template popup editor, you guys can include a footer section at the bottom of the window, and allow us to choose to align the buttons left, middle or right.

              Right now there's no separation for these buttons. It blends right in with the rest of the editor, and the buttons are default floated to the left.

              It can even be as simple as that, a greyed area at the bottom, just to indicate some separation between the body and "footer"

              Like this: http://twitter.github.com/bootstrap/javascript.html#modals

              I hope this can be applied to the window component as well

                      A lot of our applications contain a number of prompts for activating certain processes. These include DropDownLists, DatePickers, etc. Most of these controls have <widget>For wrappers for binding to a model's properties for sending back to an Controller/Action. Some of the KendoUI widgets do not have this functionality so we are currently unable to easily submit data back for all of our controls in one model class.

                      • Setting the mvc grid column editor javascript function name for inline/incell row editing

                        The MVC Grid uses the MVC EditorTemplates and currently does not support setting a JavaScript function name for the column's "editor" property.
                        Please consider adding the ability to set the javascript name for the column's editor.

                          • 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.

                                • Bring back original functionality page size option (Top, Bottom or Both) in Kendo Grid

                                  The old MVC grid had the option of allowing paging bar on the (top, bottom or both) please see example at http://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-mvc/razor/Grid/Paging?theme=sitefinity

                                  I have an open support ticket and user thread created at http://www.kendoui.com/forums/ui/grid/location-of-pagination-numbers.aspx#2367407 for this.

                                  Several attempts have been made to add paging on top, bottom and both with JavaScript OnLoad or OnDataBound, currently the suggestions do not appear to be working for MVC.

                                  I would like to recommend bringing back the page functionality of the original MVC grid to include (page size selector option located at Top, Bottom or Both) without having to add JavaScript to achieve this…

                                    • SPA with Kendo UI MVC

                                      Kendo UI MVC server-side wrappers are much more easier to work with but not possible to do a full SPA application and UI experience is slow.

                                      Can you come with an idea to allow development using server-side wrappers but then deploy application as client-side SPA converting server-side wrappers to client-side SPA code?

                                        Thanks for the idea, sounds interesting.

                                        Do you know of other solutions which allow server-side development and automatic code conversion to client SPA code? If so, feel free to share it to evaluate possible options, thanks.

                                      • Extend Autocomplete with a customizable option to not trigger when MinLength is set and the Textbox becomes empty

                                        If the .MinLength is set to a specific value, the read action is called by the Autocomplete box as soon as the Autocomplete Textbox becomes empty.

                                        This behaviour is not always desired, therefore I suggest to extend the MinLength method with an optional parameter to support both behaviours.

                                        Like
                                        .MinLength(int length, bool triggerOnEmptyText = true)

                                        • Allow for replacing the JavascriptSerializer used by the Grid

                                          We all know that the default JavascriptSerializer built into ASP.NET leaves much to be desired, which is why developers are swapping out the built in one from ASP.NET for others such as JSON.NET and ServiceStack.

                                          The issue that a lot of developers encounter when working with the MVC Wrappers is that it appears to be using the build in JavascriptSerializer, which is miserably slow and hard to work with when trying to take data from an ORM (with navigation properties) and display it on the Grid. Most of our grids closely represent a table in our database, but because the…
