  1. floating label

    Can we have a theme or feature of all input controls that can support floating labels like in google material design?

    The current material design theme demos do not show example of floating labels.

    • Customize scrollbars with your themes

      Especially with dark themes such as Metro Black, the traditional browser scrollbar does not really fit. I know scrollbar customization is not available in all browsers, but no fallback support is required (as the css is simply ignored by these browsers), and I believe it would greatly benefit users of the browsers that are supported.

      • Material Design Theme

        You've already got two "Material" themes, but they don't really seem to match the Google Material Design guidelines (http://www.google.com/design/spec/material-design/introduction.html). Would it be possible to add a new theme that accurately tracks the Material Design guidelines?

          The current version of the Material design theme conforms with the guidelines in terms of css styles, structure and general appearance, Paul.

          With regards to animations and some gesture concepts, we still evaluate the possibility to incorporate them as part of the theme. This, however, will require updates of the widgets UI structure, hence stay tuned for more info on this topic later in 2015.

            • Gradients + Full Color Palette UI

              No Web UI framework out there makes it easy to tackle the problem of Gradients. If Kendo implemented first class Gradient support in the theme designer it would make Web site / Apps that use Kendo that much richer than their competitors. In addition, the user can currently type in Hex but ti would be nice if there was a full RGB + HSB color palette for color design.

              • Modular CSS Themes

                When creating a custom build, it's highly impractical to trim down the theme css. The Less source breaks out common widget properties, but the primary themable file lumps all widgets together into a single massive file. It would be nice if this could be split apart further to trim out unused widget styles entirely.

                • Fix box-sizing for kendo controls if set in base css

                  If the base css has something like the following:
                  box-sizing: border-box;
                  -moz-box-sizing: border-box;
                  -webkit-box-sizing: border-box;
                  This will break the layout of the kendo controls.

                  Adding the following override will fix it:
                  [class^="k-"], [class*="k-"] {
                  box-sizing: content-box;
                  -webkit-box-sizing: content-box;
                  -moz-box-sizing: content-box;
                  }

                  This catches all elements that have classes with "k-" at the start and overrides the box-sizing back to default.

                  Consider adding this to the kendo css (either the wildcard version or to each k-* class).

                  • Add a Fiori Slim theme

                    The Fiori theme is elegant, more modern than the others and most closely resembles what my users want. However, it styles all of the elements abnormally large. This isn't optimal for a grid based data-centric application where there is a premium on window real estate.

                    Can you develop a Fiori Slim theme that is similar in appearance, but has vertical and horizontal dimensions similar to your other themes?

                    We have overriden many css properties to achieve this, but it is very time consuming and incomplete.

                    • Make external icon fonts first class citizens

                      Kendo has places where you can specify cssSpriteClass, and other places where you can specify the actual icon by name.

                      My proposal is to provide a way to say I am using halflings or font awesome or anything else for that matter, and just specify icon "fa fa-play" and its done.

                      Currently its way too much work to implement kicon wrappers for font awesome fonts, and then they dont work everywhere anyway.

                      • ToolBar buttons with icon font using Bootstrap or Font Awesome or any other icon font

                        The current implementation makes it too difficult to use a 3rd party icon font instead of the built in kendo sprites. I shouldn't have to specify the spriteCssClass and then add extra CSS or jQuery or both to handle position and sizing glitches. I also shouldn't be forced to use an entirely custom template just because I want to use an icon font.

                        • editor css style picker

                          The style picker has to be manually populated with style names. It would be better if it could pull the style names out of the associated stylesheet and filter the list depending on the location of the cursor i.e. only show styles applicable to ‘a’ tags when a hyperlink is highlighted.

                            It would be nice if Theme variables would be separated into a different file, to make it possible to import those variables into your own site.less.
                            This way colors etc can be re-used across the entire site.

                                Thanks for the suggestion.

                                Note that once we introduce the O365/SP2013 theme, you’ll have the option to tweak its styles using our ThemeBuilder tool to be in-line with the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2015 design concept. Therefore, introducing a separate theme for it might not be necessary.

                                    • Add .k-i-minus style for normal size icons (since there is .k-si-minus for small ones)

                                      It's obvious enough. I made normal size buttons with plus/minus functionality but there is no "minus" icon now.

                                      • Make Widgets independent of the Font Size

                                        Currently, if a page's font size is just a little bit larger (for example 14px), some widgets do not display correctly. Sometimes the images alignment is wrong, sometimes borders do not fit. As an example, look at...

                                        http://www.kendoui.com/forums/ui/general-discussions/widget-display-with-changed-font-size.aspx

                                        With frameworks like Bootstrap it is quite common that the font size is not too small. So currently it means work to use Kendo and Bootstrap together,

                                        I suggest you either improve the widgets' rendering so they do not rely on a certain font size. Or another solution would be if each customer could create a specific CSS from the LESS by…

                                        • The ThemeBuilder needs to be more elaborate for UI Designers.

                                          The Themebuilder is way too narrow for me to style the product we are building properly. As a designer, I would like to be able to style most properties using a tool like that. E.g. I cannot style the grid except 3-4 properties. The example grid has no hierarchy, and most grid functions are not there for me to see/style. I have worked with your competition Infragistics before, and they have a very flexible AppStylist that allows me to change all style properties.

                                          I would like you to build something like that! And, of course, be able to import current…
